“Some good, mostly mediocre.”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We had dinner for four people. One meal, the tacos were great two other meals where average in the fourth was below average. Service started out good but one order was incorrect. We sent it back and when they brought the correct order and it was a little cold. The final insult was when they
added the tip to the bill. This
place was recommended highly and we may have just caught a bad night. Would not go back.

“Another poor attempt to Mexican cousine in Puerto Rico”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

I found the service quite slow despite that there were only 5 customers. I saw a promising menu but it was very disappointing. One my first visit I ordered a mole dish that frankly tasted like they just opened a commercial mole jar an poor the sauce over it, the rice was not tasty nor were the beans. Since I believe I can not judge a place with just one visit. I gave the place the benefit of the doubt and went back, this time I was the only customer and still the service was very poor and slow. This time I ordered enchiladas and then AGAIN I was very disappointed with the enchilada sauce and the rice and the poor excuse to refried beans. So I scratched the name of the place from my list of places that I should go back.

“Its was ok two years ago”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

I have been to this place a few times over the past few years since I discovered it around 2011...it's was ok service was always slow though. Tonight we just had to drink two margaritas almost no alcohol; rice was old or reheated too many times. Chicken was definitely reheated and chips were soggy. Too bad since driving around we could see that all places around we're full and this one was empty or almost ...hopefully the owner will get back to the kitchen and practice some more with fresh ingredients.

“Recommended”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

I'm local and live just 30 minutes from the place. However, it is one of my favorite destinations. The place is clean, the prices are very fair and the food is quite good actually. This is Mexican food like you may expect to find it outside Mexico but which still tastes excellent. I'm not rating the restaurant because how the menu looks like because as long as I can read it, is fine with me. Think about good food, a courteous waiter/waitress and fair price. I'll keep eating here and I recommend it.

“Good service, average food.”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

In a strip mall on 110, we went to dinner here on a night when most things were closed and they were slammed. They handled the stress really well and the service stayed friendly and as fast as they could make it- these folks know how to hustle. The food was mostly really average, with some odd items on the menu (tacosagne?) Not an inspiring experience, but the wait staff deserve a lot of credit for handling tired, hungry crowds with aplomb.
