Authentic Mexican food. Don and his team always serve great food. Eat inside or on the outside deck (in season). Lots of food for the money. You will not be disapointed

This restaurant was recommended by one of the Wineries as one of the best places to go in Penn Yan. Small but very busy restaurant in a short street by Tops Market.

We love Mexican food and the food here is good, not great but it will not disappoint. What did bother us was waiting for a hour for our food to be served. They were busy but not slammed. Oh well!
