“Nope”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Went here on a recommendation. We won't ever go back. Good: the salsa while you are waiting for your food, good stuff! Bad: the waiter scooped the chips out of a Juanita's tortilla chip bag (yes the kind you buy at the grocery store) with his bare hands and put them in the bowl to serve. Good: bottled beer was $4. Bad: the "house" margarita's were good BUT came in a tiny 8 oz. glass and they charged $8. Food was very authentic, which translates to being extremely bland. Pork tacos had no taste whatsoever. VERY pricey!

“Strong margaritas!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We stopped in just to get some margaritas and an empanada. The chorizo empanada was pretty good, crisp, but not very flavorful. The excellent rating is for the small-but-potent margaritas. Served in glasses to look like they are sawed-off beer bottles, they were tasty and make us woozy quickly. Would go back again if I ever find myself in Friday Harbor.

“Amazing food offered”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We love this place, just wish it was open for lunch! The food was great and very authentic. I had the special for that day, pork belly's and loved every bite. A lovely couple operates it and they offer a great selection of plates. If you love unique Mexican food be sure to eat here!

“Wasn't anything special”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Food was ok. I tried to like the fish tacos, but didn't find it anything special. Move on to the next place. Nothing impressive here.

“Disappointing!! ”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

There was nothing original, delightful or green. 2 daily "specials" an two cerveza's $45!! Serve your self and salsa bar with kids playing in the open containers. Sad that this meal was offered in Friday Harbor.
