This is a cute little place but the food did not work for us. The menu is too large and unfocused, hence they had odd food combinations and nothing we had was well prepared. Hubby had a chicken quesadilla with soup - New England clam chowder that was unexpectedly spicy. I had a pulled pork stir fry on rice noodles... More

First visit based on a recommendation from a friend. We had out of town guests that wanted to go out for lunch. Reserved and got a nice quiet table at the back of the restaurant all to ourselves. Our server Alisha was fantastic, I could not believe how knowledgeable she was when asked for drink options she rattled them off... More

Three of us went for a Birthday Dinner. Large portions, great service, food was awesome! Love the decor, and the atmosphere of this hidden gem. For a Saturday night it was really quiet in there but that was not anything to worry about. Food arrived quickly and was hot. The soft taco was huge and good value. I know I... More

We were looking for a light lunch at 2:00 on an October Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was fairly busy although by no means full and the staff seemed a little caught off guard by that. There was only one woman serving and she was overwhelmed although she remained friendly and upbeat. Surprisingly there were four soups on the menu and... More

When we first visited in 2005, we had a great meal and the restaurant had a certain flair that made it a pleasant place to eat. Seemed very authentic Mexican. Our last two visits have been less than stellar, and seems the atmosphere is a bit dowdy. The menu is all over the map, and the Mexican food we ordered... More
