Visited before a concert at 20 Monroe Life on a Saturday Night. Clean, good service, good food and drinks. I come from Lansing where most Mexican Restaurants have really sub-par food and service, so this was a winner!

Went out with friends and ordered the 46oz pitcher of margaritas. My husband clearly asked for the 46oz pitcher, and I pointed to it on the menu. Later on we ordered another one for the table. When our bill came we were surprised to see we were charged for two 60oz pitchers, (a $13.00 per pitcher difference!). We pointed this... More

we visit Grand Rapids often, and always take time to eat at this restaurant. The service is fast and super friendly. The decor is beautiful - hand painted and carved tables and chairs. And of course the food - delicious!!!!!

We had a party of 13 who needed to stay busy for a few hours in GR before a reception. When we walked in without reservations, they did not blink an eye. They sat us together within minutes and took drink orders immediately. This was at 4 o'clock on New Years Day. I wish I caught the name of the... More

Charming on the inside with a great location, run while you can. Nice people work here so this is tough to write but I must warn. The food has no flavor and the ingredients make institutional fare gourmet. Queso in my chile reallno was a substance similar to Velveeta, a memory from childhood that brings nausea even now. The sauce... More

Excellent service. We were seated right away and the waitress took our order as soon as we were ready. The food came out quickly (less than 10 minutes) and the order was exactly correct. The food was tasty and all three of us were satisfied (portions were large). Recommended to anyone wanting to get an affordable meal in downtown Grand... More

This is a great restaurant for Mexican food. I have been there a few times now, and found the service and food to be great both times. The margaritas are really good, too. The price for the food is reasonable for what you get.

We stopped for a snack and a beer and the chicken quesadilla was very good, one of the nicest I have tasted. Not cheap but it is city center and you can sit outside and enjoy a sunny day.
