“Best Mexican in new England”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

The last place you would look for great Mexican food is a small town in New Hampshire, but here it is. Everything is great. I always get the Tacos and my sister always gets the Enchilada with green sauce. The guacamole is made fresh at your table with ingredients you choose. Only negative is that it is very small and hard to get into and a long process when they are busy.

“Delicious fish, tacos not so much”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

The Sole with butter and white wine sauce was spectacular. The tacos carbonara were average as the tortillas were hard. The queso was fantastic.

“Authentic and delicious”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

As a Texan, I'm very particular about Mexican food, and I did not expect to find authentic delicious Mexican cuisine in New Hampshire. I was pleasantly surprised. The enchiladas were perfect, with homemade tomatillo sauce. Wonderful! The owner is from Mexico and is very warm and friendly. Hope I have a chance to go back.

“Oh, the mole”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Kind of a little hole in the wall, just off Main in Wolfeboro. Stopped in for my birthday lunch, actually, based on a tip from my old friend Yelp. Ordered the chicken mole enchiladas and spent the rest of lunch swooning, then licked my place. The service was great, attentive, fast. Was a bit warm in there but I'd sweat for a day for that plate of food again.

“Great Stop on a Long Trip”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

The server was a friendly, cute young man who took time to talk to us, answer our questions about the area. The chips and salsa were good, and we both ordered
enchiladas that were awesome.
There was a different, more upscale decor than most Mexican restaurants, and it was a pleasant change. Good experience in every way.
