Food is good depending on what you order. The combo plates are usually the best at this place. There is a good variety of items to choose from on the menu and place is willing to substitute items. Service was not the best the last two times I went for an early dinner. Margarita was not up to par either.

The soup is great. The other people had the burritos and the burritos looked quite big, enough for two meals. They are a bit skimpy on the rice and salad, but that might be due to the fact that the burrito covered so much of the plate. In the soup there was lots of meal, fabulous seasoning, and it was...

Love their chili rellenos. Good atmosphere but the service tends to be very slow, not always accurate and the servers are not always courteous. The bar has better service than the dining room.

There don't seem to be many options to eat on a monday evening, so we found by accident this mecixan restaurant. The food was actually quite good, but the staff didn't seem to actually want to serve guests, and the interior is very tacky and cliché. For the price and food quality it is worth a visit though.

Food is good, homemade corn tortillas, good hot sauce, tasty tacos and enchiladas, but service is extremely slow. You will think you have been forgotten many times. So if you have nothing but time, worth the stop. But if you are in a hurry you may want to pass.

Food was pretty solid, and service was good. Here's my list of Pros/Cons: PROS: (1) Good food (2) Generous portions (3) Lots of options on the menu CONS: (a) The place is strangely split into two dining rooms. One is DEFINITELY nicer than the other half. __ Bottom line: Probably the best sit-down Mexican option in Hanford, so long as... More

I have visited Hanford 3 times in last 6 months for business. This restaurant was recommended on my first visit and I've made it a point to come here again and again. Service has always been great (don't understand those who post different) and food is delish. I'll be back

Thank Dave S
