If you are looking for authentic Mexican food this is the place for you. They have great chips and salsa. Just make sure you get there early, this place gets packed, which says something about the quality of the food.

It was not that crowded but still had to wait to be seated. Not a real big selection of beer. We had to wait forever to get our food. We were just about ready to leave when it came. It was not better then fast food at taco bell. We finished and I had to go find someone to bring... More

This is my go too place for Mexican Food. If you like Cali Mexican food then this is the place. Awesome salsa. They make it different than most places as they use ground chiles. Not too hot but just the right amount of heat. Its addictive! I have tried so many items and have never been disappointed. The carnitas and... More

I'd like to start with the fact that the staff was very friendly, however...the food was far less than great, WAY overpriced for what you get. I ordered the chicken salad, it was a bowl of bagged shredded lettuce that was in a pool of cold water, couldn't eat it. It was "happy hour" but the wait staff did not... More

Went with another couple as this is there go to Mexican restaurant. It was delish. Ordered combo plates and more food than a couple of us could finish. Delicious salsa, had a great flavor and just enough spices. Crispy rellenos were some of the best I have eaten. Wait staff was friendly, restaurant clean as were the restrooms. Green chili... More

The place has a menu that would take weeks to try everything on it. Usually I don't care for such menus. I prefer them to contain no more that maybe fifteen items. But then the menu has pictures of the items they sell and THAT made figuring out what to order, fun and maddening! It all looked so good!. We... More

Ok, brief disclosure. My wife is of New Mexican descent, I lived in San Diego for about six years, and love Baja style Mexican food. That being said, I am very critical of Mexican food. This place is always very good to excellent depending upon what you order. It has become a locals favorite, always packed now. No big deal... More
