This was our least favorite place we ate while visiting Kingston for 5 days. It was hard to find parking. The service was not very good. It wasn’t very busy. The food was ok but kind of expensive for this type of food.

Just happened to search this place and stop while driving thru. It was by far one of the better Mexican restaurants I’ve been to. Nice smaller menu with great ingredients! Wish we lived closer this would be a regular for us.

I'm not a chef, but I've worked in restaurants. In my experience, restaurants like to protect their work product, including recipes. I'm sure you can find a good recipe online. Good luck!
