“OK place to eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

This place was recommended by a couple of people, we like Mexican so checked it out. We both had the Friday night fish taco special, which was a good value for under $8, but until we added salsa and hot sauce frankly there wasn't much taste to it. Not bad -- just not anything special. My margarita was good, and service was OK.

“Solid, authentic MexicanI food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Who would have thought that a small Mexican place in Penn Yan, NY, would be the best restaurant in town? After many meals there, I have to give this place some props. I have found it to always be very fresh and subtlely spiced - this is not Taco Bell, but a true, authentic Mexican restaurant. The pork napolitos are killer good - who does cactus in New York? Where do they find cactus in New York? I love the enchiladas and burritos and chili rellenos - yum! Have not been there since they got their liquor license but am ready to hit them up again!

“Nice little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here recently. The restaurant is small but nice. The staff did seem a little overworked but they did a good job. We had the pork tacos and the enchiladas. All the food was good and were nice sized portions. I did order a sangria which tasted good but was mostly juice. Overall a good little Mexican restaurant.

“Nice casual restaurant that gave us a break from "american" food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Good food and service at this little restaurant in Penn Yan. We felt like the area was lacking variety in type of cuisine, and were glad to find this place.
