We loved this place. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere. THEN my husband has a penny in his enchilada. No comment from the manager, I'm sure they thought we were lying. Now we can not stomach the thought of going back. : (

We usually go to La Playa (SPID location) or KiKo's when we want Mexican food, but KiKo's is ALWAYS so crowded and service at LaPlaya is going downhill (not to mention the live mariachi band is ruining the place). People we knew had said this place was good so we gave it a try. It was a great experience. I was apprehensive given the location off the main eatery area, but when we arrived the parking lot was packed and there was a crowd at the hostess stand. We thought we would be waiting a while for a table, but were seated immediately. We ordered a bowl of queso to go with the complimentary chips and salsa and it was good. We both ordered the mixed enchilada plate so we could have a sampling. Everything was really good. We will definitely be back.

Made at your table, this salad is delicious. Make sure you check out many chilis the preparer uses.
