Looks small from the outside and you'll be right. We got there about 6:00 and got to choose any booth or table. It was just before holloween and our very nice and efficient waitress Laura was made up with tattoos, skeleton stockings and a small black and red sombrero, too cute ! We had the fresh guacamole and chips to... More

Great service (always friendly and quick), great food (delicious), and great atmosphere (comfortable and relaxing). This restaurant never disappoints. Portions are huge (maybe because we eat so many yummy chips before our meal arrives) so there are leftovers for the next day (or later that evening).

They offer good priced drinks and their food is always fresh and good tasting. We had the bean dip which was prepared fresh. The meal sizes are generous and the margaritas are offered in two sizes.

Funky little house in old downtown Dayton that is been converted to a restaurant. Service is very friendly, and very fast. Food is fresh, hot, and pretty good for Mexican American food. prices are very reasonable.

Some times very good some times not so good. Same with the dishes. I will have a great meal and some one in the party will have a not so good meal. I hope when you go the meals will all be great.

If you love authentic Mexican food, mild or hot, you will love the food. The quaint atmosphere is enchanting but, if you are looking for glitz you won't find it here. Linda , the owner, has a lovely patio area to dine in also.

If you travel thru Dayton you are on the Loneliest Highway corridor (Hwy. 5O). This little restaurant was originally a home owned by the Quilici/Selmi family. My mother-in-law and father-in- law lived there before moving to her father's Ranch in Dayton, Nv. (The Quilici Ranch), way back in the day (before my husband was born). The food made by Chef...
