Went with my wife and two teenage daughters and we are all very picky having been to Mexico several times. The service was good and run by the family. Could they have shoved another margarita down my mouth? Sure! But the family would not have enjoyed the evening as much as me. We shared some seafood and beef nachos for... More

My friends and I were there for dinner and it was great! The food was tasty and large portions. I had a Mexican bulldog drink which was the best one I've ever had. The staff were very nice and good service. Can't wait to come back!

Showed up for dinner asking if a table for 2 was possible without reservations. The door person told us nonchalantly that maybe in 45 minutes or maybe an hour.....when it was obvious to us 2 tables were finished and waiting for the check. Been here before......the good is good but the service is always pathetic.......it's like this family run place... More

Unfortunately this place seemed empty at lunch hour of a weekday in January and still the wait staff seemed overwhelmed with the 2 tables they had to serve. They were pleasant but seemed frantic and forgot our drinks entirely. Unaware of the specials for the day. Food taste mediocre. Not any recognizable mexican or Hispanic flavors. bland food. Very greasy... More

Food was fresh and very flavorful. Rice milk highly recommended by a friend who was with us. Both corn and flour tortillas were available to purchase. The pulled pork tacos were a a generous portion. Guacamole and salsa appetizers each had a good amount of corn tortilla chips, easily enough for sharing.

Overall, a really great restaurant, we have eaten there at least 5 times over the last couple of years. Favourite dishes are the veracruza calamari appetizer, the seafood soup main and the stuffed poblano main. Margaritas are a little hit and miss, sometimes they are great, others just ok. The staff is excellent, the only thing keeping it from a... More

We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. The taste and presentation were very good and the service was excellent. When they are arrived, the portions were large so if you're not famished consider sharing. The enchiladas and salad were delicious. It was early when we dined there with friends but it would still be a pleasant place to dine even... More

Avg. service and below avg. food. Above average price. We ordered pico de gallo and the taco plate for 2. The pico de gallo was not fresh and we received fajitas. We were told that that was their style if taco. The taste was bland and the chicken over cooked. We didn't order drinks and the bill was $55. This... More

Good authentic Mexican food. Seems pricey until you see the portion size. Definitely could've split one meal with my boyfriend. Enchiladas and fish tacos were both delicious! The restaurant is really cute.
