We went to this restaurant trying to go somewhere other than the chain restaurants. It was a good choice, very nice place on the inside. The food and service were also good.

For those who likes mexican food and mariachis as well this is the perfect place to visit. It is a cozy restaurant with a vast menu to choose from and with plenty of local and foreign beers and wines. All the plates we asked for were perfectly prepared and the guacamole dessert is out of this world. The prices starts... More

The food was very solid Mexican faire and the service was attentive and good. The highlight of the night was the Mariachi Band Jalisco who played beautifully and created a wonderful festive atmosphere. Good food and good music makes for an entertaining night out. We believe the Mariachis are there on weekends only, so check before you go.

We ordered a L O T of food, everything was fresh and delicious, from loaded nachos with chicken, flautas with pork - my favorite! and a Burrito. The Corona beers were very cold, so we had a couple. It was a very fun afternoon. I will definetely go again.

This is a great Mexican Restaurant. I went in the afternoon. Food was great but service was lousy. They do a lot better at peak lunch or dinner times

Not real Mexican food. Typical Tex-Mex fair you would find throughout the US. Service was slow, food was bland and drinks miniscule. Over priced for what was being offered. Try Aurorita around the corner which is better but not great

Food was good, but service wasn't... The server left for long periods. I asked for something and it never came as I ordered. Don't like to give a bad review, but you need to fix the service situation if you want a good business and happy customers. Again, food was great.

I want to think restaurant was understaffed but it wasn't. Food is good. Specially the totopos and the sopes ... The veil and steak were good. The Pastor average. Refills of soda come very slow . and one of the best mariachi was today (Saturday) music was good .
