We love coming here for great food and haven't been disappointed yet. We all order something different each visit so have tried quite an assortment of their food. The enchilada mole sauce is delicious, and so much better than some of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. We also love their salsa - always fresh and full of flavor. They get crowded because the building is so small, but the servers are always bustling and friendly. Great food and service.

My husband and I tried out this restaurant based on the reviews. Yuk! The service was good and the drinks were decent. And the salsa and guacamole were good too. However, the chips were very greasy and had no flavor whatsoever. We both ordered fajitas, one vegetarian, the other steak. Both had 90% onions, no exaggeration. They were greasy too. Terrible. And I used the bathroom (there is only one) and there was no soap. Never again.

Our son had just moved to Nashua and we were visiting so a nice lunch was on the agenda. This was highly rated so we took a chance. After driving thru the nice downtown we were a bit disappointed this was off the main street but despite the location it turned out really well, plus parking was easy. Staff was attentive and food was excellent. Had beef and fish dishes with a creamy chipotle sauce that was dynamite.

My wife and I went here based on Tripadvisor reviews and it was wonderful, right down to the homemade chips. The colors in the décor were loud but, hey, if you want delicious Mexican food, the restaurant has all the Mexican charm that you can handle. Wonderful meal and hospitality.

This was an awesome place from the atmosphere to the staff to the food and drinks. Their margaritas are the best, made with fresh squeezed limes. Our party all loved the homemade chips and salsa (with a slight kick!). The guacamole was very good. We all tried different dishes and all were great quality and flavorful. Make sure you have room for dessert and try their Los monkeys. These are to die for with a slightly sweet ricotta like filling!
