We have been to this restaurant several times over the last 10 years. The last two years the food has been absolutely terrible. They must have some college student pulling food out of a freezer and putting it in the microwave. Very poor quality. Very poor presentation. Tastes like cardboard.

I'd give it 1 1/2 stares if possible. They were out of several beers on tap I wanted and finally asked for a bottle of Stella which they had a large advertising card sitting on the table for. They were out of that as well. I finally gave up and said I'd just have water. The waiter was kind enough... More

Had lunch here for the first (& last) time. Husband and I ordered typical fare; tacos and enchiladas. They served taco chips and salsa; both so nondescript as to be super easy NOT to consume while waiting for our entrees. The space is bright with high ceilings. Service a bit slow as few waiters on duty but they hustled and... More

The restaurant is Mexican with out the Mexican feeling. The food is OK but not great. Nothing special and they are charging as it was the best north of the boarder. The building looks great and the food is very average.

We had a business lunch there and will definitely be back. The food was yummy and service was quick. It's a big enough place that we had plenty of room to spread out.

Located in a beautiful building that formerly served as a church, the interior is light, spacious and welcoming. I ordered the Chili Relleno, simply delicious. My co workers all had satisfied smiles, a productive business lunch with zesty flavor! Gotta eat here at least once if near Tech Center in Vancouver.

Service was good, but drinks were so-so and the atmosphere just wasn't there. They did bring limitless chips and salsa which were good. Appetizers for happy hour were large and fairly priced. We all love the taquitos, not so much on the nachos.

Stopped by for lunch. Service was very quick and the food was good (average Mexican food). I think for the money my tostata could have been a little more and maybe I should have ordered rice to go with it.

This is the only place we go for Mexican food. Always tasty and quick. Great margaritas and a lot of food for your money.
