small but great place with very good Mexican food. I was craving something other than the usual road fare and this place was recommended by the hotel. a tad expensive for the area, but great tasting food.

Wonderful authentic mexican restaurant right off Hwy2 on the west end of Ashland. Some of the best mexican food I have had. Fresh meats, veggies and great preparation with large portions as well. Often pretty busy so plan on a wait during dinner rush

Service was terrible. Waitress brought half of my order so I had to order it a second time. What they called beef is what I call dried out hamburger. Won't go back.

Noticed this restaurant on our way through Ashland in February and decided to stop for lunch. Decent food, a bit salty but that's to be expected when dining out. No seafood on the menu as far as I could tell. I always order shrimp tacos but had a quesadilla fajita instead. Huge portion, split it with my son. The service... More

We ate here in August while visiting the Apostles. Our food was excellent...the problem (which I just don't get) was that when we received our credit card bill after returning home, we discovered our waiter had added $0.80 to our tip. We gave him a 20% tip because his service was good. Not sure why he felt he was owed... More

Service was friendly and unbelievably fast and efficient-barely seated, literally, when water, chips and salsa were placed on our table. Tasty margaritas and awesome food. Our first visit and we will be back every time we are in Ashland.

Every once in awhile we go to this restaurant as a group. It's a VERY busy place, so make sure to give yourself enough time if you're planning to eat here. The food is pretty good and the margaritas are especially delicious.

Read the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try while on vacation in the area, super glad we did. As soon as we were seated we were greeted with chips & salsa (one of my favs). Food was great. Drinks were HUGE. Portions were perfect. It's a small restaurant but being a party of 8 we were... More
