We order the chimi all the time and split the dish. we split it because 2-3 item is way too much for one person. through chimi are a fav. of ours. it states right by combo items that a 2 charge for extra plate which is fine with us. best mexican in town

The last time we had eaten there, I split a meal with my mom. I guess we shouldn't have told them that we were splitting it because they charged us an extra $2 just for a plate, they didn't even split the food up or give extra. The portion sizes were small. We had chimichangas but looked more like mini-chimis. The food was ok but not worth the money.

NIce assortment of Mexican dishes and well priced, staff was helpful and friendly. Had four kids with us and they put us away from the other diners which was perfect for us.

The restaurant is family oriented and has an obvious spanish flair. The help is friendly, quick to smile. Service is good, the food is good. The place is clean and has plenty of tables. Prices are a little high, but worth it. Delivery service available.

The food was NOT good, especially not for the high, high price they charge! It was edible, but certainly not good! There are SEVERAL Mexican restaurants on the Island, and this is definitely the worst of them! Not impressed and won't go back!

Hello,

A little stumped by your review here on Tripadvisor. What did you eat when you dined with us? What didn't you like about it? What items did you feel were overpriced? Did you ask to speak to a manager about your concerns?

As a local business our pricing is in line with surrounding restaurants. We also give all of our customers complimentary (unlimited) chips and salsa, which adds to the value of our menu, and large portions.
