A group of 5 of us had dinner here the other night. We waited a long time before we ordered. It wasn't too busy, but it seemed to take the waiter a while to get to us. When we ordered the food, it took 45 minutes to come out. The horchata was watered down, the taco salad was really greasy,... More

Living up here in the NW, it's hard to find good Mexican food. It's usually some combination of either right-out-of-the-freezer entrees or healthy veggie-inside-veggie wrap. So I took this opportunity to go to a Mexican Restaurant when I visited the east bay area. I ordered the grilled fish tacos and they were delicious! Fried corn (yes, corn Portland and Seattle)...

Came back from an outing and we're hungry. We wanted to try something different. We saw the parking lot full so we thought that this place was probably good. We went in and was seated asap. They had fast service. Servers were friendly. They had big servings of everything. Menudo every weekends.

The only place that gives you beans and dip with your nacho appetizers. The food is great and I love their chicken chimichanga and Spanish rice. My wife always get the fish tacos. You won't be disappointed in their food

I was told by a few friends that this place had good drinks. I was in the area around Happy Hour time so an friend and I decided to drop in. When I walked in I was surprised to see an open cantina like setting. The place looked unassuming on the outside and even moreso on the inside. Nothing fancy... More
