Menu looked too good to be true with lots of variety, but chicken tacos were pretty dry. The kids mac and cheese was amazing and a HUGE portion. I would maybe try again, but would order something with a sauce or dressing next time. Service was good.

Very good Mexican food at a decent price, nice family atmosphere and outside seating. Its worth going if you like Mexican food that's more than just rice and beans. Varied menu too.

Wonderful patio in the back of the restaurant for outdoor dining! You'll start with chips and salsa - average on both counts. Chips are slightly thick and more crunchy than crispy, but still tasty with the salsa. They have been voted "best margarita" but this isn't a rank I would agree with - unless you like tequila with a squeeze... More

Don't let the store front fool you. This place is huge inside and has a pretty large outside patio around back. We dined on the patio for lunch and were promptly greeted and waited on. Both the chips and salsa were fresh and the salsa has a little bite to it. We took advantage of the luncheon specials for $8.99... More

There were four of us that dined here for a business dinner. The food was excellent ,and everyone was so full we could not get dessert. The staff was nice and cheeked on us regularly. We will return in the future when we are in Kirkwood.

Stepping into this Mexican Restaurant was like stepping into Mexico. The staff were friendly and worked as a team, the food was exceptional, the Margarita's were tasty, and the outside deck was festive. We enjoyed the beef, chicken, and pork enchiladas and plenty of chips and salsa. There's fun to be had here!

The margaritas make up for the average tex-mex food here. They are excellent! It's not your typical "El ...." food, so I was excited for something different. But every time, it's just sorta bland and "eh." They do have an awesome deck/patio out back with fans that's relaxing.

The food & drinks were ok, the staff a bit snobbish towards customers. Probably will not go back. Also finding a parking space was horrid. There's a lot of Mexican restaurants in St. Louis that are a lot better in price and friendliness !

Everything you'd expect from a nice Mexican restaurant plus a few pleasant surprises, too! Margaritas are really good; I order mine shaken and strained into a salted martini glass. Kids menu is available. Outdoor seating is available in season. The Mojo Shrimp is out of the ordinary, with a spicy kick from a chipotle adobo puree that is out of... More

Went on a busy Friday night...drove around for 15 minutes trying to find a parking spot in downtown Kirkwood. I know they have many public parking lots, they were all full and this was a pain on a cold, icy night. Thought the 40 minute wait was fine (expected it). Food was fine but nothing special. Food came out VERY... More
