The waitress, Merribel, was a refreshing personality She made sure everything was perfect for our experience. Not to mention that Merribel makes an outstanding bloody Mary.

Eat lunch here and was very happy with the food. Typical authentic made Mexican food. It was a little pricey for lunch but the food was really good. Good service and atmosphere. We would come back.

My wife and I enjoyed a dinner here on a recent trip to Traverse City. We were seated promptly and the server brought chips and homemade salsa almost immediately. The salsa is delicious! Our orders were taken in a timely manner and our food arrived quickly. I had the Burritos Verde, which is two chicken burritos smothered in cheese sauce... More

Great food for the whole family. Authentic Mexican food and even the chips are homemade at the restaurant. This is another place that caters to food allergies.

Stopped in here while at a conference in town. Service was good and the food was also good. Not great, but given the price everyone in the group was happy. I had the fish tacos and the three of them were filling. I would certainly return to this place.

We actually ate at their new location in the mall, although the original Garfield one is still there. Still our favorite Mexican restaurant in Traverse City. We got tacos and fajita nachos. Very good service. Will eat here again next time we visit Traverse City
