Went here for dinner. The food was good, but there are better Mexican restaurants in Traverse City. Service was excellent. We got beef tacos and a burrito. $25 for 2 of us with no drinks. Mildly spicy. Happy, friendly atmosphere.

We met friends there for drinks and dinner while on vacation, server was slow (and for a Saturday night July 4th weekend) the restaurant was slow maybe 10 tables. We had to ask the server 3 times for chips and salsa's that used to be at the table when waitress first came to table. Our dinners took almost 30 minutes... More

We were a group of six, (2 children). We were seated promptly. The customary chips and salsa were tasty. I got the Sizzling Fajitas. There was so much food!! It was delicious! The service was great, too.

This family restaurant with attached bar has been in Traverse City for years dishing up Mexican food in warm and relaxing atmosphere. They don't seem to advertise it but Monday is "Chicken Wings," (as the special) day...and they are by far the best wings in town. My personal favorite are the Garlic-Pepper wings (which are quite spicy). If I'm in... More

Great happy hour period between 3 and 6 in the afternoon and 9 until closing this restaurant has one half off all drinks. Decent selection of tequilas. Nothing too fancy. Basic beer selection. But who doesn't like a Dos Equuis Amber when sitting at a Mexican restaurant bar at half price. Chips, salsa, and refried beans also available for free.

We've eaten at all of the La Senorita locations and our favorite in the newer location by the Mall, but we were near the old location on Garfield recently, so we stopped. Very disappointed. My meal (that I always order) came with a tiny spoon full of beans and tiny spoon of rice. I ask the server that brought it... More

Visited the Garfield Ave. location in Traverse City, MI. Inside - the building was dated, dark, and furnishings greasy, and somewhat sticky. I had to brush the crumbs off my seat before I could sit down. The service was WONDERFUL, but the food was TERRIBLE! My salad was very wilted and slimy, and tasted like the plastic it may have...
