Average fare expected from such an establishment, but the service exceeded expectations. Hint: For some exemplary street tacos - order off the menu!

The food here is good, fairly quick and always hot. The service is usually very good and the drinks are pretty good and not overpriced.

The food here is very good. The service is warm, friendly and efficient. We eat here at least once a week and have never had a bad experience. The tableside guacamole is excellent. It is a family run business and it shows.

There are several Mexican restaurants in the area but this is far and away the best. We won't eat Mexican anywhere else anymore.

Very good food, and being able to sit and look on the river is really nice! Service was very good too even though they were training new people! :)

My wife and I very much enjoy coming here at the end of a long day of work and we don't feel like making dinner ourselves. The tortilla chips are always fresh and warm and the dinner portions are very generous. Our favorite dish is the Carne Asada, which we share and is even enough for a lunch the next... More
