FOOD: 4 STAR - Good food! Bent style Flautas YUM! Tableside guacamole! Service: 1 STAR - Dalila, our waitress, refused to split the bill of my party. She was also very slow for much of the time. I attribute this to prejudice. My party had alot of kids and we didn't order alcohol. When I see the "turn off" on... More

This is a pretty good place. They have guacamole that gets made at your table that is quite good and customizable. The food is pretty good. The fajitas were not too special but good. The flautas were outstanding and really big! One order is enough for 2-3 meals.

The food was quite tasty and their proportions are generous. Do not pass up the guacamole they had make at your table. It is delicious. The friend ice cream is also not to be passed. The cinnamon they add to it is like party in your mouth. We had the street tacos(the beef was better than the chicken), shrimp plate,... More

Ok, the best thing is their margaritas. The food was great but the margaritas were darn good. Typical Southern Cal Mexican food that was done well.

The food is OK, "gringo" style. They moved to a larger location a couple of years ago, but the new one is too crowded and way too noisy to even talk.
