We ordered take-out, and our food was ready within 20 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised with how delicious the tostadas vegetarianas were. My husband also liked the pollo con mole.

We came here on the recommend of my brother who lives in the area. He had made reservations. Unfortunately, (maybe because we were seated at a table in the very back?) we were forgotten a bit. Hence 4 stars instead of 5. We waited a...long time for chips and salsa, then our drinks, had to ask twice for water & finally had to ask for silverware. All that being said, they make great authentic Mexican food! The chips were fresh. They offer a 'flight' of their sauces so you can choose which one you want on your entree. The Cadillac Margarita was tasty and strong! Staff were very kind and warm.More

This is BY FAR the best restaurant in Monument!! Great margs, delicious food, gracious hosts! Do yourself a favor and try it out. From the fresh chips and salsa, homemade tortillas, amazing soups, you just can't go wrong.

First visit here went well until.......I got home with my meals to find them in "Styrofoam", which of course is not microwaveable, nor environmentally kind. So I had to transfer the saucy foods to a real plate to reheat. What a messy nuisance that was....The service was very friendly and the food quite good, though I thought a bit expensive for Mexican food. Next visit will be Dine-In once Social Distancing lets up.More

This place is full of love as a family owned business you can feel it and taste the real authentic cooking in the food and care for their customers. Best margaritas and great atmosphere! I go at least once a week for my Jarrito fix...:)More

This restaurant has an excellent chef that knows how to make delicious soups and authentic Mexican dishes. Chicken and Menudo soup are outstanding. We have tried many of their main dishes and are never disappointed. Their Margaritas are excellent as well. On Tuesday's they serve...a special menu from their grandmother's recipes. Best Mexican restaurant in the area.More

Quaint, family owned restaurant. Everything made fresh to order. Excellent service and the food was delicious. We had Breakfast/brunch on a cold and snowy day. Everyone was exceptionally nice and friendly. We will go back there again someday.

This is a small family owned restaurant that serves authentic Mexican food. I didn't recognize some of the names on the menu but the owner clearly explained the dishes. Some sauces were spicy and some mild. I loved the verde cream sauce(mild) on my enchaladas....Really enjoyed the food.More

We love their food. Reminds us of the Mexican food we grew up with in Los Angeles. Excellent margaritas and do yourself a favor and order the salsa sampler. 7 different sauces they specialize in to introduce you to the tastes. Friendly and attentive wait...staff. A jewel in Monument. 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️More
