“so fresh”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Eating here is always a pleasure. The vegetables were fresh and colorful, the sauces tasty and light. The quac is fantastic, pico has just the right heat.

“The Best Mexican in Columbia”
Reviewed 19 December 2011

This restaurant has been around a few years and is the best in Columbia. One of the healthier Mexican Restaurants as they don't load their beans with lard or oil like most do. The best mexican potatoes ever which are like sliced homefries with vegies and cheese. Chilli-Relleno is real unlike most of Columbia and has a lot of egg batter on it. Lots of great seafood dishes and tamales are the best homemade you have tasted. You can hardly go wrong on anything you get. They have an outstanding vegie buritto that is loaded with all types of fresh veggies and cheese. Their ranchero sauce is outstanding! Only negative is it is in a strip mall so there are no scenic views.
