Right smack in the middle of the blvd you cant miss it. Serves mainly mexican fare, as name suggests. Big servings on their steak and burritos. Winelist is decent where you can get chilean rojo for under $8. Music is more on the easy listening side and performers would accede to guests wanting to take the stage. Service is fast... More

Nice quiet place in the main street in Dumaguete. Try the rice and curry vegetarian dish, it's really good. My friend ordered some pork and it was not that good, that's what happen when you eat animals ^_^

They don't have the food available which is in the menu. The service was very long to get very bad quality food. We will nkt go back there anymore. There were no many customers and I understand why...Its seems that this place is nkt well managed at all.

I went there because the name seems Mexican food. I was really quite disappointed. Very bland Chimichanga. The beer not cold and the waitress was always flirting with the men at the bar instead of doing her job. I was dumb enough to try it a second time and even worse experience than the first. I guess a 3rd time... More

Here they heat the whole things omit is hot. In California, they mix different ingredients in. Some way be warm and some may be cool.... More

I actually like the food here. I find it both affordable and tasty but like most restaurants, some dishes are better than others. I don't mind the Mexican food but of course it is not as good as what someone will find in the south western part of the USA. This if the Philippines and not Texas. The best part... More

Caught my eye whilst out on a day trip. I later went back to eat and had the beef chilli with Mexican rice which was delicious. Lots of flavour and a good sized portion that was prepared quickly. Really reasonably priced. All the staff were dressed in typical Spanish dresses. I didn't realise until later that it was recommended by... More

This little restaurant just next to the busy street along the waterfront is a kind of a waiting area for people going to Coco Grove on Siquijor, which means that the place has a certain rushed atmosphere, as people are constantly coming and leaving. The food is quite cheap and not very sophisticated. OK for a quick lunch.

We went their after reading the comments on trip advisor. We were very disappointed. We order the tacos de pollo and the kare kare, a supposedly dish with peanut sauce. On the kare kare, the orange sauce was everything but peanut, the smell was weird, did not feel the peanut and there was not even a small peanut somewhere. I... More

We stopped here on two occasions, the first time for breakfast and a few days later for lunch. The stetting and decoration is nicely done and Mexican-themed. The Mexican dishes were not really authentic but still good. Both times service was very slow and inefficient.
