This was an absolute treat, had no idea authentic Mexican food could be found in Clive Iowa. The margeritas were excellent. If we have a chance this will be a stop even though it is clusteded very hard to find

The big surprise in this restaurant are the unique colorful bright Mexican carved chairs throughout. It gives you an instant smile and the anticipation for the great enchiladas is about to begin! Have a house margarita, too.

The Fajitas were delish! The Queso is rich and flavorful. Coconut, Mango, Kiwi, Peach, and BlackBerry blended Margaritas are delish!
