Nice atmosphere, good service, generous portions and authentic Mexican food. I had the flautas which were as good as the last ones I ate in Mexico City. My only criticism would be that they really dial back the spice. My friend kept asking for hotter sauce looking for more heat and their hottest didn't measure up - and they charged... More

After reading reviews, we expected a great meal and experience. The service was extremely slow. Our party of 6 received each dish at separate times. The 2 shared appetizers arrived 10 minutes apart. The main dishes were also spread out to such an extent that by the time the last person received her main two diners had already finished their... More

We went there in the middle of the afternoon and asked if we could order food to go. Our server made great recommendations and our food was ready in 10 minutes (it wasn't busy at the time, but we were still impressed)! Everything was delicious - especially the salsa!

We found the food to be very plain. It lacked the rich flavors expected from an authentic mexican restaurant. I could have done a better job cooking mexican at home.

My husband and I had lunch here a few days ago and it was delicious. I had the chicken burrito special which included the soup (absolutely delicious vegetarian soup) and my husband had tacos carnitas. He loves cilantro and this dish had lists of it. He added a bit of hot sauce and was over the moon with the flavours.... More

The food is good but the service is horrific. I called down in the afternoon to see if they did takeout for dinner. They said they did and I told them I'd call back then. I called five or six times, left two messages and could not get a hold of them. No problem - I'll just go down there.... More

Went with my wife and two teenage daughters and we are all very picky having been to Mexico several times. The service was good and run by the family. Could they have shoved another margarita down my mouth? Sure! But the family would not have enjoyed the evening as much as me. We shared some seafood and beef nachos for... More

My friends and I were there for dinner and it was great! The food was tasty and large portions. I had a Mexican bulldog drink which was the best one I've ever had. The staff were very nice and good service. Can't wait to come back!

Showed up for dinner asking if a table for 2 was possible without reservations. The door person told us nonchalantly that maybe in 45 minutes or maybe an hour.....when it was obvious to us 2 tables were finished and waiting for the check. Been here before......the good is good but the service is always pathetic.......it's like this family run place... More

Unfortunately this place seemed empty at lunch hour of a weekday in January and still the wait staff seemed overwhelmed with the 2 tables they had to serve. They were pleasant but seemed frantic and forgot our drinks entirely. Unaware of the specials for the day. Food taste mediocre. Not any recognizable mexican or Hispanic flavors. bland food. Very greasy... More
