“This is Going on Our Travel List”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

A nice lady at the visitor's center told about this place, said it was a new location for a local chain that was her favorite. It is now one of ours. First, let me say that part of the great experience was our charming and adorable waiter, Efrain, who brought a lovely positive energy to the table. We had the guacamole, not ever to be missed! They make it right at your table. That was my favorite part of the meal. The margaritas were superb, both the caliente and the corzon moderna (?). We tried enchiladas, chile relleno and tamales. Every bite was great. The enchiladas are very straight-foward, chicken is just chicken, no cheese inside or other embellishments, very authentic, the sauce perfect and not over done. What a good bargain, combination plates at $8 or $9, fancy drinks at $9 or $10. It is difinately on our list of stops off I95.

“Authenic!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

They just opened a couple weeks ago and we tried it for lunch. They have Margaritas that are $8.99 or less. Their draft beer was a little high at $3.85 for a 12oz but maybe they will come down when they pay for the building improvements <G>

My husband had the Tacos Carnitas and I had the Fish Tacos and they were both excellent! My husband has been trying to find a Mexican Restaurant that knows that Carnitas is pork cubes and not shredded! They did :) Also, he asked for Salsa verde (green sauce) and it was handmade diced and not smooth from a jar. Said it was wonderful! It was 3 soft shell tacos and the prices were $9.99/$10.99. Nothing on their menu that I saw was more than about $16.00.

So, if your not going in to sit and drink at the bar and just for lunch/dinner that you will only have a beer or two..not bad and well worth it in our opinion! We can't wait to go back and try some different things. Servers very friendly and no complaints at all. Just hope they do well so they stay open!
