We stopped by this authentic Mexican restaurant on the way back to Canada from Minneapolis. The food was great and the decor was true to the Mexican culture. We had stayed nearby a couple times before and never took the time to drop in but we will never make that mistake again. House made tortilla chips with a very fresh... More

We sat in the bar area and had great service. The food was super and of course the chips were free! Our server paid very close attention to our needs!

Stopped in to enjoy their nachos. Nachos were great. The restaurant was a little dark, so we were glad to sit by the windows.

We went here to eat on two separate occasions about three weeks apart and both times we were seated and we waited for at least 10 minutes and no one came to take our order. The first time we just left and on the second time, I asked to speak with a manager at the seating stand before we left.... More

This place is pretty good Mexican in our region of the country. Good atmosphere. Good menu. Good service. Good prices. Just darn good all the way around. They have a really nice bar area with free food most days. In the summer they have a nice patio area that is really popular.

I was not expecting the quality and authenticity of the Mexican food served here. After all, this is North Dakota. I don't think anyone would expect what I received, in North Dakota. I'm a truck driver, and travel all over. I'm often in Arizona and New Mexico, but I can honestly tell you, I have NEVER eaten better Mexican fare...ANYWHERE!!!
