“Late Supper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

By the time we got here it was pretty late and we were hot and hungry. It was still well over 90. Even so we sat outside as it looked nicer, inside was a bit bright.
Very friendly waitress got us 2 ice cold beers straight away. We have the 2 best Mexican restaurants near us at home so i did not expect it to match those but the food was very good ..fresh and tasty and even tho they were closing by the time we had finished, nobody rushed us,
we had another cold beer and the bill was very reasonable

“Good value Mexican food with great outdoor seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

We were happily surprised after reading several mediocre reviews. We had a beautiful dinner seated outside on their patio, which was lit with tea lights, and we were even entertained with live music! The food was good, service very prompt, and amazing value. Our family of 5 ate for less than $40 - most ala carte items were about $4-$5. Couldn't believe how affordable it was. All in all it was a memorable evening in a beautiful outdoor seating. Would definitely recommend it.

“Good thing the food was good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

okay first of all, how can you only have one cook and then when they don't show you don't give a heads up to the people before they are seated that it will take over an hour to get your food. Granted by the time we got it (after 9:30pm) it was hot & good. If we had known we would wait like that then we wouldn't have bothered in going there. Waiters were great though with refills and they also ran out of various foods.

“Loved the Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

We were a large group and ate here a few times. The food was delicious. The staff was friendly but service was sporatic. They also seemed to run out of many items which wiped out half the menu. Still the food was tasty enough we kept going back.
