We ate here while staying at the Best Western next door. Service was quick, the chips were hot, and the food was delicious. The portions were huge. We each had leftovers the next night.

Great service at our meal and they had a guy walking around singing and playing guitar. He sang special songs to our daughter (who was excited he was playing like the movie Coco). This is our go-to mexican restaurant in Tumwater.

This place was right next to the hotel so it was quite convenient. The atmosphere is a little above par for a Mexican place, and the servers were very friendly. I got the chimichanga combination plate (because I like to try them wherever I go)...More
