The quality of the meal can not be overlooked, but its the size of the meal that sets this place apart. Must try the vegetarian dishes, although the chimichunga is my favorite. All dishes I saw could have been split between two with no complaints.

Service is unbelievably poor and the food is just slightly above that. It smells fantastic from the outside, but is less charming on the palate. Good Mexican food in Auburn really doesn' exist.

Went here for the first time today. Ate with a small group. Everyone said their meal was very good. I had a three taco lunch special. It was very tasty.

The only thing I can say is the chips and salsa were good. We asked for a couple minutes to look at the menu. We set the menus down a few minutes later. NO staff came back to take our order in the next 10-15...More
