Great food, decent service, but a total whole in the wall. The huge marlin hanging on the wall is an indication that they serve an array of seafood. The menu offers 100's of items (really, no lie). If you're looking for that cute lil restaurant that will impress someone, this is not it. This place has about 6 booths, 5... More

Suggested by my co-workers as one of the BEST Mexican Restaurants in Santa Maria...we gave it a chance and were extremely impressed. Our server Maria, was very gracious and helpful with menu descriptions. The owners were on the premises and welcomed us personally. This establishment is on the smaller side which adds to the "family owned" atmosphere. The bill came... More

The food and service were excellent. This place has some of the best Mexican food I have ever had. Was in the area on a 3 day golf trip with friends and we were told to check this place out. I would recommend to anyone who likes authentic Mexican food.

While on a business trip we were recommend this restaurant by the hotel staff. It is authentic and fresh Mexican food. I had the stuffed whole fish (could only eat half which was still a lot) and my colleagues had the mixed fajitas. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. We'll be back again.

Santa Maria has, I've been told, a reputation as being the antithesis of a foodie's idea of heaven. Someone forgot to sendthe memo here. Delicious food, especially the cheese enchiladas, and gracious service. Reasonable prices.
