The crispy pork belly tacos and burritos are unique and very, very good. The margaritas and desserts are definitely worth it and the service was fantastic. It’s a cozy restaurant and definitely should be one of the top places on your list for dinner in...Delaware.More

You can't miss this location as it is at the center of Delaware with plenty of parking along the street. This is a small place with room for a dozen parties at tables and the same number of individuals at the bar so plan to...go early or wait for seating. it is worth it! They have great food and drink choices to all flavor profiles. The food is tasty and the amount is good. This is my go to for mexican in Delaware.More

Awesome Mexican cuisine and great, friendly service. The fish tacos are amazing and the appetizers are unique and flavorful. The sweet potato fries and Brussel sprouts are a MUST! The vegetarian tostado is great too!

This place is small, but the food is delicious! Mexican, to be sure, but with a bit of an upscale twist. The salsa was sweet, with a bit of heat, and very fresh. I had the fish tacos, and the flavors came together quite well....The crunch from the cabbage combined with the sweet/spicy sauce and the spice of the fish made for a delightful dining experience!More

Came here for a late lunch after a misfire at another local restaurant. The server was quick and friendly- the food was great. We would definitely come back.

I love chimichangas, it’s my go to at a new place. This is hands down the best chimichanga I’ve ever had. It’s so different from any other place and the flavors are amazing!!

We stopped in while attending the Delaware Arts Festival (Highly recommended! Good fun! Lots of chances to meet and pet dogs!). We had a couple drinks. We thought it was a Mediterranean place but it seemed more Mexican. Looks like they make their own hot...sauce. I’d have liked to tried one but didn’t have a spoon. Fun place to stop in. There’s a BBQ place with a patio right next door.More

Great food, friendly staff and nice local atmosphere. All the dishes that my husband and I have tried are wonderful. My favorite is the chorizo beef hamburger. They also have a nice selection of hard ciders. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful.

It was very crowded tonight as I entered but I found a great seat!! People were waiting for me to leave and the crowd was getting bigger!!! I ordered several Margaritas and they were great!!! My server, Rebekkah was actually super!!! She had a great...personality, was quick with my food and drinks, and even recommended that I get my salad heated up instead of the usual cold!!!.... and she was right!!!! I also had a super Grenache wine to drink with my meal...plenty of street parking available...food and service was exemplary. I had the Granjero Corn Salad and it was super-tasty!!! Great price and a super setting!!!!!!More
