My husband and I come weekly. The food is fresh and the sauces are outstanding. The chicken mole is my go to meal. I have never been disappointed . Chile Colorado , a beef dish, is wonderful and fully flavored. The restaurant has all of the well known dishes, like flautas, tortillas and burritos. Fajitas seem to be very popular,... More

This was our favourite meal in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area on a recent trip. The food was fantastic (none of us could finish our meals, they were delicious and large) - great tortillas and salsa to the table nearly as you sit down. Excellent ambience, feels like being in Mexico - a great ambience and it's always packed, you... More

This is an excellent establishment if you are hungry for a great Mexican Dish. Their Happy Hour is great but get there early as the bar area is quite small. Margaritas are very good but maybe a little strong for some.

Visiting an area so close to Mexico, it seemed logical that this restaurant would do a bang up job. Again, our hotel recommended this restaurant. Unfortunately for us, it was almost inedible. Flavorless glop. Tasteless and unseasoned guocomole. One of the worst Margaritas Ever. You would be crazy to go. Crazy..

The food and drinks were not good. Went last year and enjoyed visit. Seems to have gone downhill. Maybe they have new management.

Dined on a Monday evening and it was packed! We had a reservation for 8:00 p.m. and had to wait a bit for our table. My marg was a bit too strong - had to send back for a bit of dilution! Food was ok, nothing wow-wow.

I enjoyed the food here. Service was good although the food took longer than I thought it should to arrive. However, when it did arrive, it was excellent. It should be noted that it is quite loud and we needed to wait about 20 minutes for a table, but worth it. Very enjoyable.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of their food. Delicious dishes and ample portions. Also love their chips and salsa. Margaritas are strong and terrific! A good choice for a casual dinner.
