I always sit in the bar when I go. Victoria is awesome! Great margarita's and huge burrito's. I love the chicken fajita burrito....enough for three people!

“Good food, though standard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

The people are nice, the food is your standard deliciously unhealthy Mexican fare, and the ambiance is predictable. Still, it is a very nice little place.

“Lots of good hot mexican food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

While driving back to Vancouver from Seattle I started looking for someplace nice but not too expensive. We came in and were seated right away. Lots of choice on the menu seafood, chicken, beef and vegatarian. I had a margarita and and the combo fahita. The portions were large and tasted great. Server was fun and made us feel at home.
