Another fantastic dinner! Taquitos , guacamole dip & corn cob for entree. Beef enchilada and chicken enchiladas for main. Great portion size, super tasty and wonderful service. Highly recommend a trip to Cooparoo to visit this gem

Thought we would try out this place in the new location but the food was still over priced and the service inattentive, wouldn't rush back. We were shown to our table and our drinks order was never taken so we had to flag someone down. Then our entree went to the wrong table and we had to wait twice as long. My burritos came out with the wrong meat and by the time it was re-made everyone else had finished. Overall not a good experience.

Have wanted to eat here for a while & finally got to try the food with a group of friends. Was happy to find the restaurant was BYO wine but am unsure if that is still the case so check their website. We were pleasantly surprised by the decor & ambience of the restaurant. We were warmly welcomed & the menu explained to us by our friendly waitress. The food is Southern Californian/Mexican & servings were generous. We all chose different items off the menu & really enjoyed the flavours. The owner came over & talked to us after we had finished our mains & was very friendly. Once we found out the desserts were home made by the owners mother in law we quickly ordered some & they were awesome. Will be coming back for sure to try out some other menu items.

I booked this place for my mothers birthday and it didn’t disappoint. The decor set the tone for a lovely evening and the wait staff were super friendly and accommodating. A very enjoyable evening!

The jalapeño poppers and vego Fajitas were delicious! Followed up with the Brownie for dessert ❤️

We have been several times with our small children when this place was located on cavendish road. We love the American themed food, its always good, filling, and well priced. The staff are very friendly, the bar is well stocked, and the new venue looks really good. We recommend for families or groups of friends.
