Great Mexican food. Awesome margaritas. Tuesdays is half priced apps and margaritas too. You can get a variety of great dishes and a margarita for a great price.

Very good Mexican food. Excellent margaritas! Friendly quick service in a busy spot right in Wellington St w. If you're lucky enough to get the small front tables you can watch the neighbourhood as you dine!

Mostly Mexican food, nicely prepared, not too expensive, attentive service. Locals like it, and I can see why.

Ugh, where do I start This is a very cramped and poorly laid out seating plan, not friendly for parties larger than 4 - we arrived with 6 + infant and it was very awkward to slide in and out of our booth while trying to avoid the traffic of waitresses getting to their other tables. Bathroom is downstairs, not... More

When we arrived we were seated right away as we had reservations...that's pretty much the highlight of our dinner there. I totally get how people or places can have an "off" nights but this was "off" all around. Jalapeno poppers were good, and came with a decent portion size, Zucchini sticks weren't cooked properly...they had to be eaten with a... More

I went here having read the review on the Nacho613 blog. The service was good and the nachos were good, but I was disappointed with the value. I paid $43 for two beers and a plate of nachos which seemed pretty expensive. The beers were $9 a piece which was disappointing. Even though the nachos were good, I'll probably head... More

Quite unassuming, but very solid Mex-style food. Friendly service (especially if Les is on-duty). Good beer choices. Small, intimate, which can be nice, unless you are next to a loud-mouth group of shouters, who seem to be invading restaurants these days (!). And, they are one of the few restaurants, outside of downtown, which is open on Canada Day! Recommended.

Well-done texmex, great burgers, excellent service. The place is smallish and cozy but comfortable. Will definitely go back and sample other menu items.

Love the venue, staff was attentive and guacamole and fish tacos were delicious but the margarita and Mexican flag dish were a miss - I make better and the Mexican flag sauces were horrible and the side of beans was OK, not the taste sensation I was hoping for. Ottawa needs an authentic Mexican restaurant and this was not it.

Chef heard we were considering the combination plate, he let us know that the chipotle chicken and the beef burrito were the best value. He was right, both were superb. I have no idea what the last person who reviewed ate, but we could not have had a more different experience. Both meats was the perfect balance of completely cooked... More
