I love Mexican food, but this was a bit disappointing. I arrived at 2:50 and waited to be seated. By the time the waiter took my order, I wasn't able to order from the lunch menu. The food was average.

There is a lot of Mexican restaurants in Manchester this is my favorite so far. To be honest I have not tried them all because I do enjoy this place. I love their beans and rice. Friendly staff.

We ate at the restaurant on Thursday night April 23rd. It was highly recommended by some of the locals, and definitely did not disappoint. There was a very good crowd (especially for a Thursday). We were seated quickly and our waiter was very good and...More

Good was good - kind of small portion for the entree, but reasonable. Service was awful - there were only a couple of tables occupied, but we had to flag down another server to get refills. When our server did stop by, he only brought...More
