One of the few lunch places around. Nice hospitable people and the food is worth the price (maybe a little bit too pricy). But where else you gonna go? Not very fluent English but you will get your order taken care of.

This is an interesting and more sophisticated restaurant in Clearlake. I ordered the salmon taco, which was excellent, and the chile relleno, which was mediocre (mostly just a mass of melted cheese). Nice atmosphere, good service. They also have an outdoor patio. Good salsa bar...More

We decided to eat here our only night in Clearlake based on internet reviews. Looks like they were right. Although the furnishings are nothing special, the service and food was way above average. The restaurant filled up pretty completely on a weeknight, both inside and...More

I really want to like the place, but the food was just okay. Friendly staff, cool salsa bar, and laid-back decor. Prices okay and location is central. Will likely go back but not as a favorite.

Easy in and out - only 10 +/- tables - a "smiley" place - highlight: a Salsa bar with 6 choices, never seen that before! Good service and food - I'll go back next time in Clearlake.

We ate dinner here. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff is super nice. The building does not have a sign.

Exceptional food, very good prices and service. Physical setting is dated and shabby, but if you can get beyond that, the rest is superb.

A friend comes here regularly. A family operation, everyone hardworking. Dark inside, just like in Mexico. Bathroom is clean.
