The chili relleno and cheese/onion enchilada combo plate I ordered was fabulous...and I've had this same meal at many, many places over the years. Great chips and salsa too! Excellent service as well.

Low-maintenance, well-priced, authentic and delicious Mexican. Definitely the best we've had in a long time! Friendly servers, low wait time and casual atmosphere.

Great Lake view. My friend had the chicken taco salad and I the lunch fajita. Both were quite good. Server attentive and timely for drink refills. My one disappointment were the tortilla chips... just not fresh /tasty.

this place with a nice lake view seems to be staffed by men--guys that are skilled in both the kitchen and on the dining floor. Returning here for a meal is a no-brainer. Food is very good and service is even better.

Finding an excellent Mexican restaurant in Ashland was a complete surprise. My wife and I stopped for lunch. Our meals were well prepared and tasty. The service was attentive and the prices excellent. The view of Lake Superior across the highway was a real bonus....More
