It was apparently National tequila day, so I got a house margarita, which was pretty good for a house brand. Fish tacos were really good. We enjoyed ourselves quite a bit, but after 2-1/2 hours realized the place never got super busy, which seems odd.

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Elk Grove. The staff is always very friendly and the food is always great! Lots of vegetarian options and you can even alter non-veggie menu items if you like. Love this place!

We had the fajitas for two - plenty of food and cheaper then buying 2 individual fajita plates. Our waiter was very attentive (her lunch relief guy was not as attentive). Food was good and service from 1st waiter was great.
