Visited this place while on vacation in Sonoma wine country. Food was excellent, especially the guacamole, and margaritas were excellent. We ate in the covered outdoor dining area which was very pleasant. We would definitely return.

I had the huge $7 burrito in shredded pork and my wife had a stuffed pork verde taco for $3, ceviche for $10, refried beans and we each had nice margaritas. Highly recommend!

Mexican food often gets a bad rap, because many preparing it have long forgotten the intricacies of authentic Mexican Cuisine with its history of unique spices, fresh ingredients, time-consuming preparation and attractive presentation. Recipes come from a real grandmother, passed along through generations of family...More

I had passed this place many times- and am sorry I never stopped! Great place for lunch - my vegetarian burrito was excellent, and big enough for two meals.Next time I'll have the avocado salad !
