Food is good but nothing special. Very salty even for Mexican food. Atmosphere is fun & location is great for shopping. Service was very good. Drinks were delicious - especially the frozen sangria - a cross between traditional sangria and a marguerita.

We have been going here for years and the food and service is always good. We usually like to sit outside when the weather is nice.

Near the beginning (western) edge of Carytown, this simple and relaxed cantina offers a nice array of quality (strong) cocktails, typical appetizers and tasty entrees at reasonable prices in a pleasant environment. The outdoor deck is nice, as are the first and second floor indoor sections. Waitstaff are friendly, competent and timely. Nothing fancy or out of the ordinary, but... More

OK, let's get right to it. Great Margaritas! Great daiquiris! Very good food, as everyone in our party of 5 (4 adults and a 5 year old) attested to. This place is by no means fancy, but serves great Tex-Mex. Did I mention the margaritas?

We were looking for some Tex-Mex food and we finally found some. The food portions were very good size. The child's nachos were very well portioned. The Southwest Eggrolls were a meal with a couple leftover. The lunch fajitas were good size but the meat was slightly over cooked. Our cheapest meal in Richmond yet. A family of 4 it... More

Ok, Mexican food is one of my favs. I've been to several over my time on this earth. This was a pleasant surprise! Suggested by my son! Flavorful, hot, fresh, delicious! They are right it's "Nacho Mama's" typical Mexican food. Can't wait to go back! 🌯🌮

This place is pretty popular but I think its just alright. The food was mediocre but they have a nice patio to sit outside when its nice and the location is great. I've had mixed service experiences, some were good and others not so much. I'd give it a try if you haven't before but there are better places I... More

I love this place! It's quaint and the food is good! The building has so much personality. The service is good especially in the evening. I've never had their marquatias but they look GOOD! The nachos are fresh and the salsa has the right amount of punch with the spice! The next time you are in Carytown give it a... More
