We liked this restaurant---the service was great, the food was very good. Lots of selections on the menu and a few specials for a good deal. Will likely return.

“Wonderful Family Run Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013

The food here is always freshly prepared and delicious. The portions are more than ample for even the hungriest diner. The staff are all family members and the mother is the head chef. Their Verde Burrito is almost a meal for two but is so good I finish it every time. The seafood specials are also very good. You have a choice of small, medium or giant Marguerite's. They are wonderful and the large will have you talking to yourself. The food quality surpasses any of the larger chain restaurants in the area and the service is a nice plus.

“Good food, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2012 via mobile

Small dining room but the food and service are both good. You can also call in and pick up. Some of the best nachos around and good mole sauce.

“Delicious food, pleasant décor, big portions, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

I've been here three times in the last couple months, once with a friend, once with a group of 15 people, and once with family. The food was delicious every time. The portions are enough for anybody. The waitstaff, while not always there the second you need them, nevertheless are always happy to get you what you need right away and with a smile. Warm wood décor. Smaller, more intimate feel than the other, overly noisy Mexican restaurants that "everyone" goes to (apparently all at the same time). Consistently better food, too, that doesn't have that feeling of being mass-produced. A family restaurant, run by their family for your family.

In short, a calmer, friendlier, more personal alternative to the usual experience--and better food, too.

“Only So-So”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

This new Mexican restaurant didn't impress. The food was just so-so and the service not much better. With two larger established Mexican restaurants (Puerto Vallarta and The Mayan) nearby, it will be tough for this smaller place to survive. We won't be back.
