Used to go here when I worked in San Bruno. Went back tonight on a whim. Food was wonderful, plentiful, with good service. Wish I lived closer. Full menu. Many seafood and vegetarian options too. Not fancy, just great food and great service.

Still, for a quick Mexican fix, the food was more than decent and the cocktails acceptable. We had a mix to share - chicken quesadillas, a serve... More

Went for a birthday celebration with friends. Service was fine. Interior is very shabby. Sangria glass tasted and smelled like disinfectant. Not so with margarita or beer glass, however. Drinks are weak and beer selection is minimal. Had ceviche and chile relleno and cheese enchiladas and spinach enchiladas need tostada. All very mediocre and rice and beans tasted like they'd...

Go on a weekend and here some great guitar live music!, the drinks are great. The taco plate is always consistent and the salsa is made from scratch, if you are looking for good mexican food in the peninsula this is the spot.
