Good food, good service and good prices. Ladies stopped for lunch and had great taco salads. Lots of menu choices and nice atmosphere.

Good food (seafood chimichangas were excellent), good service, and a very reasonable price. Great family restaurant. We especially enjoyed eating outside.

While the decor may be a bit drab and cliche, the food is delicious. We had vegetarian fajitas, tamales with chile con carne, and tacos. All fresh, all authentic.

Decent food, good margaritas on a hot day. Service is middle of the range. Typical mexican restaurant with quick service to get you in/out.

Actually went there because our first choice was offering a special "limited" menu that we weren't interested in. A stroke of fortune for us because the food was excellent and the service was spot on. A relatively quiet setting which is getting more difficult to find. Nice authentic Mexican fare at a very reasonable price. Will definitely return...this time as... More

This was a disappointment, after a friend highly recommended it. The staff, from hostess to waitstaff, were indifferent. Mexican decor is pleasant enough, but it is very dark in there, even when bright daylight outside. They charge extra for extra chips and salsa, but removed our first basket of chips which still had some chips in it. Margaritas are ordinary.... More

We visited on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. It was beautiful outside and we wanted to sit outside. There were three open tables that had not been cleaned yet. The host tried to tell me no outside tables were available. When I inquired about whether the empty tables were reserved, or not he walked away and went outside. After cleaning... More

We took a group of neighbors after golf so we had a group of 10. Always call ahead with a larger group especially now when the snowbirds are in town as this place is popular. Great margaritas and great Mexican menu although there are other things non Mexican if you like. From here is a short walk to Spanish Springs... More

Food, atmosphere, location and prices are all very good here however there is one problem! The service at the bar can sometimes be an issue. There are times I come in and they don't have a designated bartender which lends itself to be a problem getting service. If they could solve this somewhat simple problem then I would say everything... More

Enjoyed my usual burrito lunch. "Usual" meaning this is my favorite on thei extensive lunch menu. Courteous staff, sausa and chips immediately at the table. Always an excellent explanation of menu items for those not familiar with the offerings. Attentative wait staff.
