We ate here twice and after the second visit I guess we won't be returning. The service is really slow considering how sparse the menu is. The first time we ate the food was better but wildly hot with peppers. I wished it was a bit less of a blast. I need to be careful what I wish for. The... More

The food was not very good at all. The service was even as bad. It is a nice big restaurant but just not worth it. It has a nice view of the water from one room. But my food was not hot. First time I ever had an enchilada with lettuce on the top of it, with NO sauce. I... More

Be careful when eating here if you have food allergies or dietary restrictions. When I asked our waiter what came in the chimichanga, I was told "just meat," but immediately upon cutting into it I discovered that was absolutely not true. My husband ate maybe half of his burrito before the thick, dry consistency of the beans made him give... More

I love the food, they moved to the marina downtown. Great location especially when it is hot enough to sit outside and enjoy the view. I love their homemade flour tortillas. Yum! And their micheladas are pretty tasty as well.

Breakfast was delicious, huevos rancheros and burrito, but the standout was the corn tortillas. We watched the lady making them in the open kitchen. Our only regret is that we did not come here for dinner last night and are leaving town this morning. The restaurant is located in the warehouse so don't look for a sign out on the... More

Eating here many times usually for lunch during a work day. This is real good authentic Mexican food. they make delicious tortillas right on the spot that you can see being made. Instead of refried beans try the whole beans with Mexican cheese and you won't be disappointed. There is outdoor seating under umbrellas with a view of the Waterfront... More

This is the first time I've been since Nena's moved from Waterloo Road Area. It's open and spacious now. We even spoke to Nena herself, who is very sweet. The food is as good as ever, though no big surprises. The green chili sauce was great. The mariachi band very loud. OK, it was May 5!

I'm sorry I just dont agree. For California this place SHOULD BE a lot better than it is. I read about it online. People raved about the tortillas. Well yes there are ladies making them in the window, but they are very thin and crusty with lots of brown spots on them. I dont mind the spots, but when thin... More

The parking is on the street. The area is clean. Lighting was good.When we arrived we seated ourselves. There was a bar and it was busy at lunch but did not par take. The service was good, friendly, and professional. The menu was varied and interesting. Had a salsa bar. The noise level was high. And there was seating outside.... More
