We have found the food to be good and the service great. The staff is friendly and attentive. And the menu is reasonably priced.

“Poor Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

We have eaten here many times. We have always enjoyed the food and looked forward to our visit. The service was less then desirable as there was a soccer game on. We were given chips and salsa and no refills. The waiter served us one beverage took our order and did not see him until he brought the bill. We looked several times for assistance but could not get any attention. It would have been nice to have another beverage or water and, we had considered desert but were too aggravated to stay. When the bill was delivered it was tossed on the table and a simple thanks. There was a suggested gratuity on the bill. We did not fill that suggestion as the service did not warrant such an amount. Suggestion: If the soccer game is on..........

“Authentic Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

My family has been eating here about once a month since it opened. We keep returning because the food is delicious-authentic. There is outdoor seating in nice weather. There is a bar area, but I haven't tried a cocktail there. If you want authentic Mexican in the northwest suburbs of Minneapolis, this is my suggestion.

“Really not that good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013 via mobile

After reading the reviews, I thought I would be in for a treat.
$6.99 fajitas, what a deal
But I have never had such an overlooked fajitas and salty as can be
The rice and beans had no flavor either other than salt
And I like salt!
I do have to say the marg was very good, but the service too was lacking.
When in the area, I would not do it again

“Authentic Mexican Food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

I had read about this restaurant in a review and AM SO GLAD we went there for dinner!!!!! If you want TRUE, AUTHENTIC Mexican food with a menu with specialties that you can only find in Mexico this is the place for YOU!!! The fresh Pico de Gallo and pitcher of Margaritas was the start of the wonderful meal and continued with the authentic enchiladas, burritos, fajitas and carne asada we all enjoyed!! The portions are large and reasonably priced so bring your appetite!! Service was quick, attentive and personal with explanations for menu items we were not sure of. With sals music playing in the background and a nice patio to enjoy in the summer--it was perfect!!
