    Lovely homey, quaint and cute place to drink margaritas in humongous novelty sized martini glasses, but the food was not a high point. Shrimp fajitas with barely lukewarm, pale, mushy shrimp, and greasy peppers. Overly sweet mole sauce on enchiladas. Three out of four of us couldn’t eat our entrees. On the plus side, the guacamole is tasty and the chips warm and fresh, so I think if you stick with basics you’re in good hands.

    We tried their corn cakes after sharing a meal with my brother. They were delicious. It's always very good here. We are pretty much regulars here, so they know us by name and take good care of us when we come in.

    The food was good as always, and they made it to order as I requested. Our server knows us as regulars and was very attentive. It's usually pretty lively there, but we had gotten to restaurant fairly late and so we missed the crowd that was there, so it was relatively quiet. It was one of my better experiences there.

    Perfect place to celebrate a birthday sipping on a large margaritas, so tasty & refreshing. Order a combo plate, potato taco, chicken enchiladas and chile rellano. Of course, I was not able finish it all. The potato taco is one of the best I’ve had. Enchilada was delish. Service provided by Nathaniel was outstanding. He was attentive, polite and friendly!

    Love the food, our waiter was incredible kind and love your sitting. Your staff helped me because it was a very hot day and I sat outside and I came inside because I was getting woozy and the front desk girl looked at me and immediately gave me a large glass or ice water without me asking. Thank you
