This is one of the best Mexican places in the area. The selection is big and I haven't found a dish I don't like. The people are great and the service is outstanding. Prices are reasonable and the food is great.

Tried this one in Marseilles after eating at the same family owned Mexican Eatery in Ottawa. Food was excellent: Service was great also. Ordered the chicken fahitas and got stuffed eating it all. Will stop back in the future.

I never thought I liked Mexican food until I went here with friends. Now it's my favorite place in town. I do carryout when I'm by myself, and they're very quick.

Fresh, clean and cheerful little storefront Mexican restaurant, and the food is authentic. Owners do the cooking and serving, and their care shows. Really worth a visit.
