So I will be honest food here is good but the entire reason I love to go here is the salsa. They bring the mortar and pestak to the table along with fresh fire roasted tomatos, diced onions, roasted garlic, cilantro, lime and jalapenos. The mix together as much or as little of each as you want. It is the best thing they have.

I have been there a lot of time for family dinner before, but today that I had a party for 30 people it was a total disaster. I made reservations with the owner in person about 2 month ago, and nothing that he said in our meeting was done. I had to finish setting up the tables because they were unfinished. The food that was order already took forever to get to the table, the drinks got to the table 30 mins after we arrived. The place has a lot of potential, but the owner is very rude and unprofessional. He never came to apologize for the disaster, he knows about contruction, but i do not think he knows about management and customer service at all. the waiters are not train properly. I'm very disappointed, because they ruin the celebration that we were having. Please, be aware of bad bad service at that place.

I come to this place pretty often. I have tried a lot of different items in the menu and like them all. The make the salsa for the tortillas in front of you, that creates a very nice ambiance. On the weekends they have a gentleman singing and playing the guitar walking by the tables. It worth to give it a shot if you like Mexican food!!

This is a typical Mexican restaurant all over, except for one thing. They make the salsa right at your table and the adapt to your likes. That is outstanding on my book. The salsa was as fresh as can be and it just tasted like heaven; Spcy Mexican heaven, that is. This place is quite big and it looks like it is in the middle of a big remodeling project. Service was very good. A very good find in Homestead, FL.

The ambience, the flair, the music, the minstrle, the solid service, the food was great. From the moment you walk into the door, until you are in your car, the atmosphere is fantastic. The detail of the place is most surely South and Central American with many many artifact purchasing opportunities. The wine rack is tucked away and very attractive. ALL of the staff, whether they can speak English or not, are VERY friendly, and helpful with everything. I see a tremendous amount of pride in this restaurant from the building, the adornments, the service, the live minstrles singing and playing Spanish guitars, and most importantly the food. WONDERFUL trip and experience here!
