“Bueno!”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Just amazed to discover that a single Mexican restaurant far up the coast of Maine can boast of a quality of food that would rival eateries in Florida, Texas or California. A really good sign that we will be served quality Mexican is the sometimes-perfunctory chips and salsa. Nothing perfunctory here. They are crisp, tasty and oven-warmed, accompanied by a hearty salsa and a smooth, flavorful guacamole. I had the fish tacos - lots of fish with cheese, cilantro and sauce in a soft taco. My wife had the Mexican salad - huge serving with avocados and stripped corn kernels over greens with a piquant dressing. Good selection of beers - with a few more than the usual suspects. Cozy atmosphere and very pleasant service. Come to Maine for great Mexican - believe it!

“better than your average mexican,,SUPER FRESH”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

I don't think many of the average mexican greasy spoon lovers will get this place because they don't serve old chips and salsa from a can before you get the heart burn special that gives you acid reflux for the afternoon,,what they do is prepare fresh,and i mean fresh clean healthy mexican that is seasoned well and presented artfully,,I just read the last two reviews and i eat here a few times a year,,go back to your taco bell shacks and enjoy your next bypass operation,,if you want it done well and with a new kinda spin try sunfire,,and one more thing,,they are the cleanest place I believe i have ever been in,,from the restrooms to the kitchen which is open for all to see,,

“Overpriced for what you get!”
Reviewed 7 December 2012

I was very disappointed with this restaurant! First, I have never been to a Mexican restaurant where they did not bring over chips and salsa while I waited for my meal! Second, when I saw the menu, I was surprised by the prices, but I was hungry and thought this meant good portions. I was so wrong. The food was average and the portions were very small. I arrived hungry and left hungry..and I have never had that happen at a Mexican restaurant.

“Sorry, but I ..”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

was not a happy camper in visiting this restaurant. The taste of the food was "average" but the portions were in my opinion small. I will say that I was very hungry when I arrived but did not feel satisfied when I left. AND I have been eating Mexican food (just love it!) for many, many years and this was a first for me when chips and salsa (when you arrive) was not included in the meal price. Really??? I will stick to my restaurants down here in southern Maine.

I will not be returning.
