There aren’t many places to eat in Torrey and this may be the only place serving Mexican food. It’s traditional Mexican food with enchiladas, tacos, etc. We enjoyed the chips and salsa they serve as you wait for your meal. The chicken enchiladas were hot...More

The service was very good. But there seemed to be something "lost in translation" when it came to the food. Seemed like everything came out of a can. Not much flavor. The kitchen could use some training on how to make some things from scratch.

We had dinner here the first night in the area. It is solid, typical Mexican food menu. We enjoyed our meal and the beer.

Fabulous chips-still warm- and guacamole. Fajitas and mole chicken top notch. Attentive and warm staff. Large portions so I never got to dessert. Impossible to leave hungry. Dinner for two without alcohol will runabout $40.

We enjoyed our visit here. We arrived about 5:00 pm and there were only a couple of parties present. Service was excellent and the food was nice. I had Carne Asada which I enjoyed. I was seasoned just right. The beans were a little runnier...More

This is a brand new cafe serving Mexican Food. It is part of the Sinclair Gas Station complex. The food was excellent. They travel a couple of times per week to Salt Lake City to get fresh produce.
