Make sure you make a reservation (you can do it online) because this place is always packed. If you're looking for good Mexican food in frankfurt, this is the only place to go! Fajitas are highly recommended, but we've never has anything bad. Some other comments regarding the service are unfortunately true, so don't be in a hurry - they usually have 3 people waiting on the whole restaurant and it's not super speedy. Nevertheless delicious food, worth a visit!

The food is great. If you are used to the TexMex that is served in the USA, you will like this. The prices are also not bad for Frankfurt.

That being said, the service is typical German: very awful. They had one waitress serving the entire restaurant. That is right: one person was taking orders for the entire place. This one server was incredibly rude and incapable as well. If you ever needed anything, it took 10 to 20 minutes to get. Need some more water or more food? Have fun waiting. Awful!

I would never go here again nor recommend this place to anyone.

Decent little Mexican joint near the Messe. Simple mexican fare with a german flair. Loud and busy as expected, but not too much of either.

Thank goodness we'd booked a table, my wife thought that if we get there about 6.15pm we'd get a table for 4 without a reservation - no way! We we in time for 'happy hour' - first round was a Mai Tai,Pettrifier,Long Island Ice Tea and a Mojito all served by a friendly waitress. Starter & main course was also taken by a friendly waiter. As mentioned by other visitors the seating arrangements ( table & chairs ) are pretty tight ( a bit like sardines ) but once the food arrived all was forgotten - the 4 of us certainly enjoyed the different dishes that we'd ordered complimented the 'well mixed' cocktails. Still ' happy hour ' time - 2nd round included ' Our Mai Tai's ' very tasty!
By 8pm the place was full - packed out and pretty loud to be honest. We'll be going back again - we loved the food & the ' happy hour ' cocktails - don't forget - always reserve a table !
