It may be one of the northernmost Mexican restaurants but it doesnt lose a thing for the quality of it's food and the freshness of its produce. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

Was pretty busy but they got us through. Great nachos as an appetizer and the meal I had was great. Was disappointed that the chile relleno was not available. Server was helpful and friendly.

Came here for a business dinner. It was very crowded so reservations are recommended. The food was fantastic and the margiritas were great. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the Whitehorse summer. Looking forward to trying this place again.

Chips and salsa before any meal is a must. The taco platter is amazing. The black beans are delicious. I wanted to ask how they make it all. So damn good! Don't expect cheap eats. You get what you pay for.
