I have always loved this place! It's never let me down. As another reviewer mentioned, the bean dip (that is FREE!) that they start you off with is just fantastic. Red and green salsa come with (the green one is delightfully spicy!) the dip and chips and it's free refills on those. There's a nice selection of beer and liquor and it's not too steeply priced, as with the rest of the menu. I almost always stick to the taco plate, it's one of my favorites, but if you do come here don't be scared to try anything, you will not be dissapointed! And if you are, they fix the problem no questions asked. I can honestly say in the 15yrs plus that I've been coming here, I have had bad service maybe twice..and that was due to the fact that they were extremely busy and short staffed. Other than that they treat you like family, remember what you like and seem genuinely happy to see you. They even know me and my dads names and don't laugh at him when he tries to be cool and order in Spanish (he literally knows NO Spanish lol) Now that I'm living out of state, I really feel spoiled and can never find Mexican food that quite lives up to the quality at this place. I just had to come and review this place so others try it, it's so worth it!

This restaurant has been in Concord for over 30 years and it continues to be our favorite Mexican restaurant. Nice patio and atmosphere.
They also have one in Martinez with a beautifull banquet facility.
