“Best Fajitas in the East Bay”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

Oh my! The fajitas are great. Best I've had in years.
The vegetables were abundant and had a great variety.
The combo had skirt steak, chicken and tiger prawns. Plenty of refried beans and rice along with sour cream, guacamole.
Fajita combo $16.99
Mom had two enchilada full plate for $10.99 no ground beef but real beef or steak

Only drawback was that restaurant was hot. I was sweating. The chips and salsa came but no utensils. They also give beans with the complimentary chips.

Easy access from highway via Hesperian.
Large parking area.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

I had Chile Verde one of my favorite dishes and theirs was done just right. All food was fresh and nicely presented. Salsa and chips also served with a delicious warm bean dip....nice touch. Others in my group had enchiladas which they also thought were very good. Service was extraordinary. Can't wait to go back and have something else off of their expansive menu.

“Wednesday is $1 Taco Day!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Excellent Taco, specially for a dollar. If you want an economical meal, skip the drink (they make up the difference for the dollar taco). Many different tacos to pick from. Wonderful salsa, specially if you are looking for Hot Salsa. Found out they have a Tequila Day too, but had to go back to work and couldn't try any! Give it a try if you are in the area.

“Great beer; good food”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

The draft beer was wonderful, and the food was good. At dinner time the clientele was OK, but by about 9:00 pm there were a lot of seedy characters that arrived.
