We ate here while en route through Trinidad. It was a Monday evening after 5 pm and little else for as open. But we're glad we came! Food was good, portions large, prices reasonable (as was the wine and beer), service was great. And close to our lodging g (LaQuinta). A colorful and attractive restaurant to boot!

This is one of those places with a plastic menu with so many kinds of shrimp and Mexican specialties. As such, it was friendly and courteous. The customers were interesting.

The staff is friendly. The food is good. You could take a date, or bring your family. But, the best value, is that typically a portion will be enough for two meals: to share or to take home and enjoy not cooking another time.

If you like lettuce, rice, and beans, this is the place for you. I asked for my appetizer and entree to be served without lettuce, rice, and beans, and it didn't leave much on my plate. The chicken taquito was rather bland. The beer choices are really bland.

It's a shame you weren't a fan of your chicken taquito or beer. We try to have something for everyone, but I'm sorry you were disappointed by your selection. I appreciate the feedback, though, and wish you all the best. Take care, Edgar, General Manager More

An okay Mexican restaurant, portions were large but food quality and taste was middle of the road. Prices were fair but there are most likely many others dining places nearby with better food quality

It's a good Mexican restaurant. I eat there regularly. Never been dissatisfied. I even had a surprise last summer at a party, I thought it was home made. I complimented the cook, she laughed and told me it was catered from Tequilas.

It was very nice inside, good service and clean. The chips were so so, the tortillas weren't fresh and the enchilada dinner was OK. The cheesecake was stale.

This place was near our hotel and able to seat us even though it was almost 9pm. It was nice not to have to eat fast food! The Chili Poblano was offered in crispy or soft. I opted for soft which was coated in a thin egg batter instead of a heavy fried breading- yum. The menu had a lot... More
