Sitting outside in the courtyard at the end of a hot day was quite comfortable. I had enchiladas vegetariana with an accompanying small salad. The food was ok, though I never was in Mexico to experience original Mexican food. The staff was friendly.

This is my favorite go to Mexican restaurant in San Jose/Santa Clara. Always reliable, good chips and salsa. They really need to work on their iced tea, it is dreadful. I have been here dozens of times.

A family-run restaurant where everything is always fresh and the portions massive. Food arrives quickly and the service is attentive.

The food was great and there was plenty of it. The only reason for the four stars is that my food was a bit too spicy. Other than that it had great flavor and great service. Would definitely eat there again.
