LOVE this place. Awesome pozole wth chicken. Everything is good here. My daughter's friend said the barbados was excellent (her mom is hispanic). Prices are almost too low! They could easily charge more. SO GOOD.

Cute place but they wanted $11.75 for a Cadillac margarita. We are used to paying $7.50. Yeah, I know, tourist high season prices. Need to make their money. But we chose to eat nachos without drinks.

Group of 9. Service was slow. Appreciated that they brought the children's food quickly but the adults food arrived well after the little ones were finished. Food was okay. Staff was apologetic for the slow service and offered free dessert.

The chips were good. The salsa was fair, my order was a little different (I wanted a cheese enchilada and got chicken). Overall, it was fair but we'll try one of the other Mexican restaurants (at least 3 within 5 miles) next time. Probably won't...More
