Went here for the second time last week. The atmosphere is casual fun where you order at a counter. I ordered their crabcake salad that visually was a work of art and tasted devine. The menu could be catagorized as fresh mex unlike traditional mexican that has everything loaded with cheese.It can get crowded especially on weekends. Fun,fun, fun.

Lots of fun and excitement. Don't like the cafeteria style of ordering. The food was good and the margaritas are excellent.

This place is packed nearly seven days a week. It is insanely busy on the weekends all day and night. Excellent Cal-Mex food and drink, especially the margaritas and enchaladas. All ages for singles, couples, families, and groups. Campbell is the hottest little town in Silicon Valley. It used to be a sleepy little town that was established in the... More

I went for a lighter meal in the early afternoon. The restaurant was busy and we had a little wait to order our food. Once we were seated the food arrived quickly and we all enjoyed it. We were a group of a 9. We found seating by moving some table together. We each ordered at the counter and paid... More

The menu is confusing and I didn't expect self service where I couldn't enjoy margarita while reading menu. Huge number of screaming kids - staff did wonderful keeping it all cleaned up. Margaritas strong, good and cold. Steak burrito bland and more rice than anything. Could not taste any cheese. Cabbage slaw sweet if you like that and could use... More

We tend to come here almost every other week, while we are coming to the Farmer's market on Sundays. After shopping, we'll go in for lunch. It's an informal place -- you wait in line to put in your order. You get yourself the utensils, napkins, pick up water or fountain drinks. You get a beeper to let you know... More

Very fun atmosphere, sparkling clean, wonderful aromas, reasonable prices, freshest and healthiest choices offered! My absolute fav was the Adobo chicken bowl with lime and avocado. With all the yummy ingredients, who needs gluten? So nice that it was clearly stated to be gluten free, and so lucky for me that it was to die for!

The menu was very different from others in the area. I like that the food was cooked fresh to order and used quality meat and veggies.
