We really enjoyed our meal here--chips, soup, and wonderful entrees. Great margaritas! It wasn't crowded (although it should be) and we had a wonderful dinner together.

Travels have brought me to Mexico, South America, Europe, and across the U.S. from the east to California. And, if you are looking for delicious Mexican food, this is the place to go.

A small establishment, it bustles in the summers and on weekends, and once you dine here, you'll be back as a regular, even if you have to travel. They have a full bar for pre-dinner (very reasonable) margaritas.

The only challenge is deciding whether to go with one of their daily specials or order off the regular menu. Some highlights: pork wing appetizer, pork and pineapple tacos, anything with chicken – this is, in fact, the only place I’ve had solid white meat chicken breast (and I’m a dissector) in burritos, tacos, quesadillas – there are no compromises on food quality here.

Their pork dishes are excellent. Chilis rellenos aren’t just a glob of cheese in an unidentifiable pepper, but filled with chicken, raisins, pineapple and almonds. Vegetarians will find delicious choices. Spinach quesadillas are perfect, and if you want, light on cheese. Fish tacos (fried) are excellent. Wait staff is attentive, friendly, and welcoming. Prices reasonable and the food authentically Mexican.

If you try it, you won't go anywhere else
