Restaurant details
Reviewed November 11, 2011

We were in Somerset for a night, and the reviews online (other sites) were very good for this restaurant, so decided to give it a try. It was a Friday night, and the parking lot was completely full (good sign!) so we had to drive back out, and found a spot behind the Pine Grill a few shops down. When we got in, the place was very crowded but they seated us at the last remaining table. The waitress was very friendly and took our drink orders. I had a Corona and my wife an iced tea. Chips and salsa were brought to the table - chips were tasty & salsa was mild. This was a good sign, as the last 2-3 Mexican Restaurants we've been to, everything has been WAY too spicy!

We weren't sure what to order. As I said the last few times we went to Mexican, our food was too spicy and we didn't like it. So we decided to order two different dishes (in case one of them was bad) and switching plates. I got the Chimichanga and my wife got the Burritos (we both got chicken).

The food came out pretty quickly, considering how full they were. We both loved our respective dishes so much that we decided NOT to switch plates!! Both were great, and not spicy - perfect for what we were looking for.

Great price & Great Food - we were very pleased.

All in all a great experience and highly recommended!!

I'm actually from Cali...I've been to the best of the best Mexican places. this place at least is run by people actually from Mexico so at least they know what they are doing. They tone it down a bit for the gringos though...not very spicy. I love the fajitas and the chalupa Tejanavis good . Salsa isn't bad either. But I may just like this place because I miss my Mexican food soooo much. I miss Cali. :(

Atmosphere is nice...good talavera decorations too!

I had a passable mole ranchero here. The sauce was a little hot--could have been hotter--and fairly rich tasting. The margarita was all right--not sweet, at least. My waitress was an older, motherly woman who spoke little English, which made me like the place better, actually.

At least the food here was fairly interesting, unlike other places in Somerset.
