“Try it; You'll Like It”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Try it; you will like it. It is small and well worth your time. Cost before tip was just over $26 for two adults and a toddler; no adult beverages (alcohol) ordered.

The only negative I can offer is that they only offer Coke products; I am a Mountain Dew fan.

My wife and I had been here once before for lunch more than 6 months ago and I thought it was just OK then. Tonight we met friends for dinner. They seemed pretty busy. The friends eat here regularly. We found out the owner was waiting on us; his wait staff had called in sick, so he and his wife were running almost everything. They did amazingly well. Drinks and orders were very timely all things considered.

I had the Camerones la Cabana (shrimp with mushrooms). It was delicious. When I ordered, the owner offered that it was one of their best dishes and most ordered. He was right on. My wife almost ordered the same thing but instead went for a chicken fajita quesadilla; she says delicious as well. Also neither she nor I are guacamole fans but she tried theirs and loved it. Our 2 3/4 YO son had a soft taco and ate most of it - a great statement on his part as well. Our friend, obviously like it - inviting us to share "their find". Great call.

Also note the complementary chips and salsa - the salsa is made on premises - fresh and tasty.

It is a small restaurant; small capacity. It can be a little noisy when full. The owner and his wife and son all made us very welcome and seemed genuinely grateful for the business. As I stated, they were busy when we arrived; our friends were already seated so we joined them directly. I observed others being greeted and seated all with great welcome. They were still johnny-on-the-spot with getting our drink choice and bringing a menu and high chair. The owner is very accommodating and has a rich booming baritone voice that made me hope he would break out in song with some of the mariachi music in the background; alas he did not. The owner's young son is a couple years older than our son and walks about like a miniature overseer but is very shy if addressed directly. After we ate and my son got a little restless waiting while we talked, he hit it off with the son and his corner with toys; we practically had to drag him out.

All-in-all definietly worth a visit and probably a return visit as well.

“Great lunch!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

In town for the Arts Festival and wanted more of a regular meal than "fair food". Decided to try this place without having read any reviews. Great find!! Some of the best taquitos I've had in a long time. My "always hungry" boy was more than satisfied with his huge burrito. We will visit again when in Delaware!

Love the California burrito. The dishes with the white cheese sauce on them are my favorites. It is a fun atmosphere too.

Haven't had one thing I haven't liked! The fresh table side guac is so good and the best chili relanos!

“Pretty darn good!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Friendly and fresh. Started with chips and salsa plus house white sauce (sweet with a little bite) which were good and margaritas which were too good. My wife had the Three Amigos dinner and I had carnitas salsa verde. Both cooked nicely and both had great sauces. Too full for dessert. Service very good.
Gave it 4of 5 cause 5 should knock my socks off and put them back on but I highly recommend it and will be back.
