This family owned business is a wonderful place for a great Mexican meal in the Eureka area. The food is fresh, served hot and quickly, and the staff is so very friendly and accommodating. We had quite a large party that wanted to come pretty close to closing time. They stayed open for us and we enjoyed a lovely meal... More

There were 8 of us for dinner, 4 of which were children. They were so accommodating and the food was great. Wonderful children's menu. Prices were good. Our waitress was such a sweetheart. You will not be disappointed.

Pork tamale was the best!! We also got the appetizer chorizo with melted cheese (peppers and onions in there as well).

We had a gathering with friends, I feel it was way over priced for what we were served. Typical Mexican chips and sides with decent flavor for the proteins. Had to go to the kitchen to get more Sprite since the waitress did not come back around. Probably would of been better if we ordered separate.

Great food. Fast, friendly service. Fair prices. Highly recommend the Mexican pizza with chicken and the super quesadilla with grilled steak.

Local spot with great Mexican food, margaritas, and service. Celiac friendly - avoid the chips and chimichangas.
