This little hole in the wall might seem like a regular take-out order style place but don't be fooled by the looks. One of the best Mexican places I have been to in recent times. From the Corn chips with unique selection of Salsas, Fajitas...More

This is a small place just off of Lakeshore Drive. Three guys are cooking - that's a good sign! Mexican-fusion at its best! Had the grilled salmon and it was wonderful! Good food at a low price! Too bad they have closed until January 2!

One of the few lunch places around. Nice hospitable people and the food is worth the price (maybe a little bit too pricy). But where else you gonna go? Not very fluent English but you will get your order taken care of.

I really want to like the place, but the food was just okay. Friendly staff, cool salsa bar, and laid-back decor. Prices okay and location is central. Will likely go back but not as a favorite.

I've eaten here before and been thoroughly pleased but this time was a disappointment. The food was only OK but the service was good. I do like the patio with the cover to sit outside in the shade of a warm day.

A year later since my last visit. Desperate again for fresh food after dealing with Valley Fire-related moving. Not any better than last time, and now I think I'll remember why I didn't like it last time. We ate here on a Friday -- bad...More
