“Good food, nice portions, interesting ambiance.”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 via mobile

We went there after reading some comments on tripadvisor. We had a chicken nachos as a starter, then chicken quesadillas and beef tacos. Food is good and portions are generous.

Staff is friendly, but hard to talk about service as it's more of a fast food, take your food and find a place, such was fine with us.

Nice little patio where we ate, way too hot inside for a great summer day like this one.

“Mexican ain't my fav, but I like this place.”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Funky place, reasonable prices, good menu. Locals eat here. Fortunately, Nelson doesn't permit McDonald's in this town.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The food here is freshly cooked, fast and completely delicious at a good price. The staff were friendly. It is a "serve yourself" establishment, where you order at a bar, then wait for your name to be called out. You put your own dishes onto a trolley. The place is welcoming for children.

Excellent fresh ingredients. All three of us loved our meals. Large portions and Gluten Free Options! Being able to sit outside on a gorgeous spring day was an extra treat. Will be back!!
