This is a fun place with friendly service and great food. Try the shrimp tostada for sure. The salsas were fresh and tasty, too. The service was a little slow, but I'm guessing that's not typical. It's easy to get here off of 101

Best Mexican food I had in ages. Food took awhile but it was worth the wait. Food is fresh and authentic. It's decorated nicely with lovely pictures and pottery. I just loved it.

We visited this restaurant at the suggestion of the Inn at Pinnacles staff. We enjoyed talking with the staff / owner (very friendly and hospitable). Authentic Mexican home-cooked food. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Recommended by motel manager. Very spicy salsa & chile colorado. Greasy tostada but lots of fresh lettuce, tomato, cheese & guacamole. Interesting Mexican folk decor and old photos.

Food was average to good. Long wait for a simple burrito. Nicely decorated inside. Salsas both were quite spicy. Food was fairly priced.
