We waited about 30 minutes on a Friday evening to get dinner. We had a large plate of guacamole, black beans and corn tortillas, all very tasty.

Good food and pretty authentic for a small town in eastern California. Service could have been a bit better and it is nothing special inside.

In Groveland California of all places you come across this authentic mexican restaurant. Been there for 26 years. It is a small but tidy place with good food and friendly service. We had the fajitas. Good. Definitely worth a try...

Food is ok, but not the best~ But given the only open restaurant in town, I would have to go there and eat. But I would not if I had more choices.

The wait staff were really nice and the food came out promptly. The menu has way too many items on it. The tacos were disappointing and had no flavour. I wouldn't go back!

Good food, waitress rather brusque. Convenient to the town hotels. Try the enchiladas. Prices were reasonable.

No Complaints here. I prefer a Mexican place that serves a good Margarita but this place makes up for it with the killer food. I don't mind a cold Negra Modello with my meal either. First time in the nights special was Carnitas. I loved it. The second time in I had the beef Fajitas. Another big-time winner. I would... More

We ate here because our favorite establishment had a power outage. The place was clean, the staff were friendly, service was quick and the food was hot. Unfortunately, like many Mexican restaurants in the US, the food was bland, lacking any spiciness whatsoever.
