Unless you're willing to wait an hour or two for a table, make reservations. The menu is quite varied with some dishes I've not seen in many Mexican restaurants, Chicken Mole being one of those. We had a table for 7 and tried many different...More

I have visited this place for the last 17 years. It is a peninsula favorite. It is crowded on weekends but easy on weekdays.
