I'm always glad for businesses coming to downtown Gardiner, and I love mexican food. But, I'm constantly left with confusion about this place. My first experience was a while ago and i gave it another try, to see if things had changed. Not so much. I would LOVE for this place to be something truly amazing! Take a trip to... More

This small crock pot shop can serve up a nice piece of Mexicana, but the flavor and quality could be better, especially since it took one hour roughly to receive our meal.

I'm not a Mexican food fan, but they make a great hot dog sandwich. I still come here because I misd Fred's Bacon and peanut butter bagel sandwich from the previous owner, Bagel Mainea.

I like to call my order in during the lunch rush. It's a small place, but the food is great. I love the chicken burrito, loaded & hot. You better be hungry because the burrito is huge.

It wasn't first visit here -will definitely return. It was a bit of a wait, but worth it. The menu gives you a lot of options to customize a burrito how you like it. Mine was very tasty!

I eat at the Augusta shop a couple of times a month. The food is good and the place is a warm spot for a quick lunch. They can turn the burrito into a salad if you're avoiding carbs - very tasty and satisfying.

A good friend of mine is a huge fan so I finally tried them, the first time there was just one young girl running the place alone, they were our of guacamole and sour cream and things were just thrown together and heated in the microwave, food was mediocre at best. I gave them a 2nd chance and unfortunately still... More

Not just saying that just to say it, started by ordering, huge line but only two people were working. One lady taking people's orders and another making the food, the one making the food was all over the place and was wearing a skirt and flip fops. Okay I didn't let that affect my first impression, waited 25 mins for... More

Such nice people, decent music, quirky art/decor, free wi-fi, and a little adjoining bookstore with proceeds going to the Gardiner Public Library. Also, tasty cheap Mexican is not easy to find in the Kennebec area.

Yum!! Every visit I try to mix it up a bit - we have favorites (I'm a vegetarian, heat-lover who also orders meat dishes for my mild-palated other half - and keeps track of his feedback) -- and we both manage to develop MORE favorites every time! Really, you just can't go wrong with fresh ingredients, an eye to fantastic... More
