I tried it because it got good reviews on trip advisor. My meal started with a good bowl of meatball soup but the carne asada was below average

The chips and salsa are a must! The enchiladas are my favorite! Definitely worth the drive if you ask me.

Stopped here on our way to Monterey. So glad we did. Excellent Mexican food. Margaritas where a hit also and I don't really care for tequila the Mango one was delish so was the Peach. Hope to be back soon. I had a Taco salad with chicken and my friend had a shrimp fajita she said was the best she's... More

Read the reviews and chose this restaurant over the others in Gilroy. Feels like a family run place which is probably good if you are a local. Tables too close together which made it feel crowded and the owners were out of the floor chatting and laughing with the regulars and so it was too loud. The chips and salsa... More

Family owned for 30 years and still great food. It was reasonably priced. We ordered meat ball soup with vegetables and if they have it the day you stop it is a must. Also ordered chicken and beef enchiladas with rice and beans. All excellent.

Ha-ha ( owner is a Elvis impersonator) When I am not feeling good, I have to have their chicken soup. So yummy! Michaels enchiladas are yummy with green sauce and chicken. My dad... More

The best thing about this place is the friendly staff!! We were visiting Gilroy so we went out to eat. The food was okay. I had to put the salsa on my rice and beans if that tells you anything. Not too spicy. The Margaritas were great. The margarita machine was broken, so they were blended and served on the... More

Very good food. They have an Elvis impersonator, who is part of the family, and sometimes waits tables. Very friendly staff, good food. Great for families.

Better than Taco Bell but not a great place. The atmosphere...there isn't any. It is a hole-in-the-wall family owned place. The owner was very friendly however the food was so-so. The salsa was fresh made and good. The chicken enchilada was ok, but it was small. Rice and beens were just average. Ok as a quick lunch spot but don't... More
