Nikki, Cesar, and Mayra the servers at the Brunch were so nice as they hustled around the restaurant making sure that all of the Brunch guest were happy, and... More

The food melts in your mouth.The enchiladas were the best ive tasted.The prices were average but well worth it.Fresh tortillas made right in front of you and delivered to your table free and piping hot.Order ala cart for the best deal unless you really want the whole bean and rice thing.Very cozy and wonderful people.

I ate here recently and really enjoyed my dinner. The Lobster was excellent as was the Cadillac Margarita. Serve was exceptional. This is now going to be a repeat destination for family lunch or dinner dates.

I've eaten here 3 or 4 times since my favorite hole in the wall Mexican place closed. It's very good. Cheese enchiladas had plenty of cheese and the sauce was great. GF had chicken fajitas and there was plenty of meat. It was marinated prior to cooking so the flavor was excellent. Recommend this place

Don't waste your time or money, there are many better places in El Cajon and La Mesa. We ordered four different entrees and all arrived barely warm. We were warned about "the hot plates" and the server even had a glove on but...they were not even warm. Cheese was not melted, sauce tasted of a grocery store canned variety. We... More

I only discovered this about two years ago. I last visited it in June, 2015 and the time before during the 2014-15 Christmas Holidays, each time taking family guests/friends. Whether you go for lunch, dinner, cocktail hour, brunch or whatever, I am convinced that this place cannot be beat for Old Mexico cuisine served in a family atmosphere. A tortilla... More

An absolute jewel of a place on all counts--atmosphere, graciousness, service, food, accessibility --and you'll love the prices and happy hour specials, too. An added plus is the wonderful tortillas made fresh right there in front of diners. I felt like I was in Old Mexico and experiencing true Mexican hospitality. It can get crowded on weekends, so reservations are... More
