This food was not the Mexican food I am used to. It was different, yet so delicious. I had the apple soda in a can. The guacamole was delicious and plentiful. They don't serve rice and beans automatically with your meal, but there is plenty.

I have brought friends here a couple of times. They enjoy the food as well. The fajitas and enchiladas are the best.

Only Mexican restaurant in town serving authentic Mexican food. Inexpensive. Yummy. Be advised that you order at a counter and then food is brought to your table.

I live in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico so I can attest to the authenticity of the dishes here. I had barbacoa and it reminded me of Sunday lunches. Good beans and rice and sauces. Great guacamole too. Portions are great and the prices are...More
