We wanted some ethnic food and gave this place a try. The food was fresh and well prepared. Service was good. Prices were reasonable.

My husband and I have visited this restaurant several times with friends. I have to say it is probably some of the best Mexican food in KC. In past times I have had the 5 tacos, twice beef and once chicken and either way they are excellent and very filling. The last visit I had one of their burritos and... More

Just had dinner here with my family this evening. It was ok the rest of my family liked theirs but mine was redone as it included green peppers I asked to be excluded when ordering. I'd be curious to try some other dishes.

Okay, this place is a hidden gem. The atmosphere is not that impressive but it is clean and the food is authentic and amazing. There are plenty of food options to choose from but can be a bit pricey. The portion sizes are not super large but filling. I crave the achiote sauce! It keeps me coming back for more.

So glad you continue to come in! The achiote sauce is addicting, isn't it? Please come back soon and thank you for the feedback. More

4 adults and 3 kids . In and out in a touch over an hour. Waiter very nice and helpful with kids orders. We had the queso fundido. It is ok. My opinion is that it has too much stuff in it. (Mushrooms, onions, peppers, chorizo abs just a little cheese. ) I just like baked cheese and a little... More

This is an okay place for Mexican. Chips were okay and salsa was good. Nothing special about it. One thing for sure, cost is pretty steep. A tiny bowl of guacamole was $3.50. A carne asada burrito was $9.99. Service was below average as well.

Heading home to Gladstone. Pulled in the parking lot and went in, and one of the guys said sorry we are closed. The owner said come on in we'll feed you. They closed at 8 and we got there at 8:15. We got our food and it was great. I sure miss this restaurant in Gladstone. I would highly recommend... More

So glad you came in and that we were able to accommodate you. I'm glad you came in even though the closed one in Gladstone would have been closer for you. Hope that means we will see you more often here. More

The service is great, but the food was not that good for what they charge, and quantity is also not in line. Will not go again.

The Manager at this restaurant is hands-on - which made for a great evening. He made some recommendations - one we loved, one we thought was just okay. We will be back and try some of his other recommendations next time. The staff is attentive and made us feel welcome! We will definitely be back for more!
