Frequent this restaurant regularly and it is one the best go to restaurant in this area. It is a favorite for the locals and travelers. If you need to have a private party, you will have the same culinary delight. GOOD EATING Barbara Hu

I have been dining here since she opened years ago. The coffee is so tasty, I could just order that, but then I would miss out on the most delectable squash enchiladas ever created! I cannot tell you about many other items, as I always order the same dish. The servers are upbeat and pleasant regardless of if you are... More

This meal and service was way up the high end of the spectrum. The most delicious meals we have had in a long time at a Mexican restaurant. You will not be disappointed. Margaritas were great too. Check out their website. Actually met the lovely lady who is the owner, a delightful lady.

We had an early Valentine's dinner here and it was incredible. My husband had one of the specials and I had the Sea Bass. Both were delicious. Also Anjejo margarita was great.

Giant Margaritas was the start! Limit of two - I now understand why. We began with queso dip and guacamole. Both were really flavorful. We all ordered the tacos de res combo plate. It had great Spanish rice and tasty ranchero style beans. The entire meal was outstanding. The service was well executed, attentive but not imposing. The finish was... More

I have had a good experience here before but this time was not so good. We had a big group and the service was okay. It took a long time to get our orders delivered to us. The restaurant was slammed but they were plenty of staff. The food was tasty, as always. Ordered Coconut Shrimp and it was good.... More

This restaurant was located only nine minutes from our hotel so we decided to give it a try....We weren't disappointed.....Beautiful table settings with real silverware placed on a linen tablecloth was quite impressive....The only mistake we made was ordering the huge 28 ounce margaritas......Too much even for margarita lovers.....Our platters of Mexican food came out on platters that were smoking...

This was a FABULOUS experience. There were several large groups, and we were just 3 of us, still we were treated like VIPs... the management staff checked on us more than once, the wait staff were very professional, courteous and friendly.
