A frequent place to dine for our family. Food is regular Mexican fare, love the Margaritas and the patio ambiance is great. You can bring your quiet, friendly dog. Favorite weekend brunch venue for our family.

We often eat here when we are in Ojai. The Mexican food is excellent. We had drinks and a light supper this trip. The service was prompt and friendly. The portions are substantial and the price is moderate. Actually, I'd say it is a bargain...More

Plenty items to chose from. Chips and salsa put on the table as soon as we sat down. Service was fast and welcoming.

We sat out on the patio on a super hot day. The atmosphere is really good/casual. And since it's right in the middle of Ojai's main strip, very convenient. The food is good/decent. It's not like "amazing", but will definitely hit the spot after a...More

We have been coming here for several years now and the food is always very good and consistent. If I order a tostada today, I can count on the same quality next month. They are also flexible with the orders. The Margaritas are awesome!! Chips...More
