The value is good and the food is always hot and flavorful. There are dozens of Mexican restaurants in Salem you just have to find the ones with best use of spices you like.

One of the popular Mexican restaurants in town, with a few locations. I eat in west salem. Food consistently good and tequila good if u know what to ask for. Margarita's good. I get the chicken enchilada or fajitas. Restaurant a little crowded. Good location and plenty of parking.

So when you walk in there is a jar to tip the tortilla lady....a good sign since homemade tortillas are my weakness. The menu was expensive which made it hard to decide, but definitely something for everyone. Very authentic. The food came out amazingly fast we were barely able to finish our chips and yummy salsa. Our whole dining experience... More

Friendly staff, bright and cheery atmosphere. Chips always crisp and food hot from the kitchen. Tortillas are handmade and delicious. Great parking and convenient for us.

I am stumped about all the good reviews. I grew up in San Diego and have been eating Mexican food as long as I can remember..so 50+ years. I amazed this place is packed. I didn't drink as I was driving, so perhaps that's the ticket, get drunk on margaritas and the food tastes good? Service was quick, but waiter... More

The best Mexican food in town! Wow! We really love the fajitas, and the fajita quesadilla! We haven't had anything that we didn't like!

Bad a late breakfast (10) and as always the food was reasonable and tasty. I was having lunch with friends later so opted for the oatmeal which came with cranberries, nuts and other yummy goodies. Perfect choice! The hubby had a breakfast bowl which must have been good since there was nothing left for me to try and our ex... More

Best features: decor and service. Despite a huge menu, the food is just okay. Decent bar. We went in at 5:30 on a Friday night and they were able to seat our party of 10 within about five minutes.
