“Mediocre Food and service”
Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We were there early and after the food was served, we had to chase her down to get drink refills. I had a chilli relleno and a sope and my wife had chimichangas. The relleno was good but the sope was tasteless and my wife said her chimmi's were terrible. I hate to run down a local Resteraunt but this was very expensive for the value received and service was poor considering how empty the place was.

“Standard Mexican faire”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

I ordered the super burrito with chicken instead of beef, it was enormous, but tasty. The rice and beans were totally standard. Two group members ordered the chicken enchiladas and were very satisfied. The chips and salsa were nothing special, but hit the spot. My one complaint was that the bathroom was quite dingy and smelled bad. Overall though a nice change from all the regular seafood restaurants in Long Beach.

“Pretty good Mexican”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

We liked the food here. The salsa was a bit bland, but the tamales, chimichangas and enchiladas were great.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Same thing I wrote on yelp. The food was outstanding. Had a Chile Rellano, ground beef enchilada, and a taco and it was great. Wife had a seafood enchilada and said it was great.
