If you are coming here for a quiet, leisurely meal this is not the place. But if you are looking for great Mexican food, good service and excellent Margarita's then this is the place. Most of the employees are family and they make you feel welcome. But it is the food that keeps bringing me back.

This place is rather busy and we had to wait 30 minutes for our table. When we were finally seated, it felt very cramped...the tables feel like they are too close together. The food was very good however, which explains the crowds.

Unfortunately, they had a mariachi band go from table to table (the place is already too cramp---there's no need to add to the crowd with a band taking up room!) They stare at you while you eat...not very pleasant...we just told them to go from our table.

Even though the traditional cuisine does shine, they have one of if not the best cheeseburger in San Rafael.

Décor and service were very good.
Food was mediocre. Although all we had were cheese crisps, it was not a very good representation of their menu. But I thought how can you screw up a cheese crisp.
Maybe by using a cheese substitute?
Prices were a little high for what we got.

Good service, quick & efficient and friendly. Nice decor, easy parking. Fahitas could be better, usual Mexican fare is fine.
