The atmosphere is great but the food is very bland. They need to add some new and exciting flavors to their menu. The restaurant has been around for many years in the Orange County area.

Went for breakfast and they had to find and make coffee. The chorizo had very little flavor as did my breakfast burrito. Nice staff, but the food -- yuck.

One of the most authentic Mexican restaurants in The area. Great ambience. They serve tortilla chips as appetizers and their margaritas are great

Love this place. Have been going back for 20 years. This is classic Sonoran style Mexican; expect nothing fancy and no tex-mex. Excellent traditional combos and the best chicken tortilla soup! Highly recommended for a fun meal with great margaritas.
