If this is considered "the best" casual traditional Mexican restaurant in the area, then I'm not impressed by any means whatsoever and that should worry me in the sense of what it says about this country's region.

For some reason, this place did not have very good reviews. We wanted to try it anyway. Our food was great. Nice, authentic Mexican atmosphere. We loved sitting outside.

Authentic Mexican food. Good ribs. The cheese/tequila fondue was amazing. Many tourists visit this restaurant. My daughter was highly entertained by their local cat.

We recently ate at this restaurant on our way to the airport after 9 days in Cabo San Lucas. We went out of the way to get here based on Trip Advisor reviews days before we went. The hot bowls are definitely the thing to order. Not all of us had them, and the other food was fine (excellent Chile... More
