The food at this place is excellent and the ambiance when there is live Latin music is superb. Have come here many times and it disappoints. Lots of Gluten Free options for celiacs. Two thumbs up!

My favourite Mexican restaurant tucked away on 6th Street in New Westminster. Very casual, hopping busy, good size portions and very reasonable prices. For a Tuesday night it was extremely busy so maybe there were just not enough servers on. We had to ask a couple of times, couldn't find the server, hostess said she couldn't help us. I used...

Chips were hard & salty & only got a tiny tiny bowl for 2 people. Salsa was in "ketchup" type squirt bottles, no plates or anything to put it or the few chips on. Chicken enchiladas were pretty tasteless except for the verde sauce. Beans & rice were okay. The shrimp fajitas were good but none of the add-ons we... More

Went here last night for the first time, been wanting to go for ages and finally decided to go and I was not let down! It wasn't too busy so we got seated right away. They had live music and they were playing Xmas themed songs and it was such a relaxing environment. As soon as we were seated they... More

Absolutely delicious food. Visited for lunch with my dad and husband. The seated us and gave us chips and some spicy salsas. We then ordered and the food came out pretty quickly. My flautas were a little crispier than I'm used to, but they were still really good. They also had some ridiculously delicious flan for dessert. Everything is authentic.... More

We have dined here several times. It's not a high end restaurant. Very typical Mexican menu at very reasonable prices. Closest to being in Mexico.

Ordered a nice carnitas burrito that came in a plate w guacamole and sourcream. Really tasty, had beans and rice... More

This place has the atmosphere of a Mexican taqueria down to a "t". I was impressed their staff, decor, and music all embodied and embraced the Mexican culture. A++ for that. B- however for the food. It lacked seasoning, color, and was bland. I was rather disappointed as I had high hopes for this place. It could have just been... More
