Always a stop for us when in the area. Good food - try the daily specials. Great selections of margaritas. Efficient service (maybe a bit too quick).

A very good, upscale Mexican restaurant. Many specialty dishes above and beyond the normal Mexican chain restaurant cuisine. Obviously very popular restaurant - especially with the locals. Service was also excellent. Mid to high price range but large portions.

Guillermo and family do a nice job of taking care of the customers who come into the restaurant. The bar makes some of the best margarita's around, they can make a mean drink. I have never had something I didn't like. We have had several...More

We enjoyed a nice, casual dinner here while on vacation in the area. Per others’ recommendations, I asked the server for advice and ordered the shrimp diablo. Large, juicy shrimp with delicious, creamy sauce (not spicy despite the name), plus a side of vegetable rice...More

The guitar player is there every night from 6:00 P.M. until 9:00 P.M. He's very good & we enjoy the music. Not too loud. Also, I am sure the restaurant would accommodate your vegan tastes if you let them know.
