“Yummy good karma!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stopped for a lunch after biking and sat in the back outside. Ate the most heavenly fresh guacamole and watched the butterflies on the butterfly bush. The food is great, people nice, and the prices are right.

“Best Mex”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Wow what a surprise. Have driven by a number of times never really thought much of the place. It is low key when entering with a couple tables and counter though you do get a sense of serious foodie place. We sat in the back garden with the hammock to set the mood. We order three dishes...my youngest got 3 soft tacos and one was better than the next. They are prepared unllke anything I have in the East with exception of the best in NYC. The Chicken was the great...the pulled pork had a great consistance...though little bland in flavor and the beef which was very good. The guacamole on top was unbelievable. My other daughter got 3 hard tacos 2 beef and 1 chix...they where very good with a nicely spiced salsa and sour cream. I got a Chimichanga which was awesome. perfectly cooked with with great sides. The service was great and helpful and pleasant when ordering. A MUST STOP.

“Try the Tacos”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Authentic Mexican cuisine. Other options are available on the menu, although I don't know why they bother because it seems to me that they could specialize in their freshly prepared Mexican fare and do quite well. Food is made to order, and soft shell chicken tacos come with a generous dollop of fresh guacamole and lime wedges. Ambience is nothing to write home about, so go here for lunch or a casual dinner with friends and enjoy the reasonably priced food.
