Would give ZERO. Never have we had such a terrible meal. Pass on lunch here. Would say Margarita was decent but served in a cracked glass. Had them replace it!

Had the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp and it was one of the best meals I've had at a Mexican restaurant in a while. I highly recommend this dish!

Food was good but the water had a funny taste to it. Service was pretty good. Stopped in from Florida going home.

This is a great little restaurant. Found it here on Trip Advisor while driving on 95. I agree with the best of the reviews. We had a lovely Margarita, perfect sweet tea, excellent chips and salsa, perfectly tender carnitas with all the fixins, and tasty chile relleno (combo 12). Service was terrific. Nice mix of Anglo and Latino customers.

We just relocated to Richmond Hill. We knew we were going to miss our favorite Mexican from home. The service here is great. The food has a good flavor and the margaritas are pretty good, too.

Faster than fast food, and better than the average mexican restaurant. We will be back again for another lunch, or perhaps dinner.

We were in the mood for a quick supper and a frozen Margarita. This was our first visit and we were not Disapointed. The small Margarita was 3.50, the food was fresh and reasonable, the chips and salsa tasty. We sat at the bar where the service was quick and friendly. It was happy hour.

Went here with our two boys with another couple and their child, all kids 10 years old. Our waitress greeted us with a smile and helped to get the kids meals tailored to their needs- one wanted shrimp, but not a big dinner, so they made him a basic shrimp and cheese quesadilla. Another child wanted a beef burrito, but... More

Ordered California Rice, (chicken) food was extremely SALTY...told the waiter and he proceeded to tell us that it was probably the cheese and went on to tell us about his experience earlier in the day with his food being salty. Sadly, he never offered to bring another plate or offer a discount on the meal. Needless to say it was... More
