This has been my favorite Mexican restaurant for over 20 years. It is family owned and operated the service is fast and friendly the food is the most authentic in the area. You can not get a better lunch or dinner at any price

Would give ZERO. Never have we had such a terrible meal. Pass on lunch here. Would say Margarita was decent but served in a cracked glass. Had them replace it!

Had the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp and it was one of the best meals I've had at a Mexican restaurant in a while. I highly recommend this dish!

We just relocated to Richmond Hill. We knew we were going to miss our favorite Mexican from home. The service here is great. The food has a good flavor and the margaritas are pretty good, too.

Faster than fast food, and better than the average mexican restaurant. We will be back again for another lunch, or perhaps dinner.

I'm sorry but we do not live in the area. We visit Richmond Hill 4-5 times a year to visit our daughter. We have eaten there very often and the buffet is open every time we go. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
