“Decent Mexican Food”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

This place is good for their salsa and albondigas soup. Other that that, very Americanized food. It's always full though. I just prefer a more authentic fare.

“"Americanized" Mexican Food w/ good service”
Reviewed 5 December 2011

This restaurant is part of a successful small local chain. We went there with a group of 50 and the restaurant did quite well to serve such a large group. The foods offered however were the bland usual dishes expected in most Mexican restaurants. This is apparently what most people want thus the success of the chain. If what you are looking for is a little more hot spice and authenticity, this is not the place. I doubt if many Mexicans eat here.

“A great find”
Reviewed 27 August 2009

We were simply driving around looking for somewhere to eat when we found this place. Great food, friendly, welcoming staff and possibly the best value margarita's in the world. A great find and superb value for money.

“One of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the desert”
Reviewed 22 February 2008

We love Mexican food and over the years have eaten at many of the Mexican restuarants in the desert. This restaurant is one of our favorites.

Service is good & food is wonderful. Prices are average. There are a number of different locations in the desert & we have eaten at several of them (Palm Desert, Palm Springs, Cathedral City).

Try it - you will like it!

“Where the locals go”
Reviewed 26 December 2005

We've tried numerous Mexican restaurants in the desert looking for the winner. Well, this is it. Fun, helpful staff and great food at reasonable prices. The decor is typical "Tijuana funky" but that is what you expect in a good local hangout. Unfortunately, the tourists are discovering this place also as the waits can be substantial on weekends (they don't take reservations).
