My Co-Worker and I went to dinner here. We found it to be a very nice Mexican restaurant. The Food was good, it was warm and inviting. The Margarita's were very tasty. I would go back to this place again.

We generally like this eatery quite well. The food today was obviously not fresh and had been reheated and overcooked. This was visible as well. The prices are too high to not serve freshly cooked food. They are not busy on this weeknight so it's...More

Great place to eat and the staff is very friendly. We've been here multiple times and each time the food has been consistently good. Their salsa is the best in Charleston area!

What a delightful place! Not only was the food amazing and authentic, the staff were good-humored and incredibly funny. I ordered the buffalo chicken nachos, which was such a large portion, I took the rest home for two additional meals. Highly recommend!

We stopped in on a Saturday while in town and thoroughly enjoyed the lunch and the visit. The service was great, super friendly servers. Food was excellent with portions that were filling but not so over-the-top that you left half of it on your plate....More

DECOR: authentic Mexican. It doesn't look like your colorful plastic faux Mexican restaurant, and it doesn't feel like a low budget dive serving mediocre Mexican food. After all, just because I'm from Mexico doesn't guarantee I can cook. This is bright and sprinkled with real...More
