Reviewed 17 April 2014

Best service and Mexican food in Cottage Grove. Awesome bar with plenty of drink options. Large family style restaurant with huge platters of food. The salsa verde is the best.

“Good food and friendly service”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

I had a steak fajita burrito. It was very large, more than I could eat in one sitting. Good flavor and the meat was tender.
My wife had camerones monterrey. She was very pleased with her dinner. I took a taste and thought the bacon completely overpowered the shrimp, there was a lot of bacon wrapped around the shrimp. But it was good! And who doesn't like bacon???
Service was prompt and very friendly.

“everything great!!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

We arrived at 3pm for late lunch. Service was wonderful and fast, gave 20% tip. Food arrived on very hot plates and reasonable portions but still enough food for leftovers for small eaters in group but enough to fill up extra tall guy. Everything tasted fresh.

“Warm and cozy on a dark rainy day”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

We were on a trip from Seattle to Sacramento on a rainy day with a wet dog and a tiny motel room at the end of a day on the road. Driving around town looking for a meal, we suddenly saw the brightly painted restaurant. Inside the clean warm atmosphere of Mexican decor and welcoming staff brightened our evening! The service was quick and the food very fresh and delicious for an astoundingly low price. Our compliments to the friendly and efficient staff. Three different people came to be sure our meal was satisfactory.

We highly suggest you give it a try .we will plan to stop on our way home.

“Mild Mexican Meal”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Not busy - but very slow service. Margarita was very icy. Food was average for Mexican - nothing to brag about.
