Service and atmosphere is good, however, the food is very ordinary with a side of gringo to it. If you want Americanized Mexican food than this is the place for you. Do not expect anything hot, including the salsa that goes with the so-so chips. Although I did not try it, they do have Fosselman's ice cream, which is surely... More

I gave them a two stars for the staff being so nice, but the food was unexceptionable. All of our dishes were pretty bland including the salsa. No one in our group of four finished our meals. On top of not being tasty two in our party felt ill when we got home.

Took the family for a meal on Tuesday. The service was great, but the food was just OK! Not bad food, but just like dozens of other "Hispanic food" restaurants. Taco Tuesday special was good, and the kids food was to their liking, but my food and my wife's food was nothing to rave about.

I went here last weekend for a retirement/birthday party. I'd seen the place a million times, but had never eaten here. We were a party of about 30, and service was excellent!!! They have the NICEST waiters that served us at this event. When the food arrived, I was very pleased with how it looked and even more pleased when... More

The last time I wrote a review for this restaurant it was glowing because they had just upgraded the food. We live in the area, and had been here several times and each time I went home and felt sick so we stopped going. We decided to try it again after many many months and the food was excellent and...

Hey! This is southern California and I found the worst burrito I ever ate. Salty and tasteless I was adding hot sauce just to salvage it for some flavor.

This gem is hidden across from the Santa Anita horse track. Inside offers a nice bar area, good size dining area and a couple of snapper rooms for groups. Our party of six had tamales, tostadas, and a couple of made to order dishes as well as drinks. Total bill was a very reasonable $100.00. Service was outstanding. This is... More

1st off the management is the worst, very unhappy people seem to work here, they look scared of something. Then the food sucks, how do you mess up Mexican food? Then my beer was warm. This place is on my list of restaurants never to go to again.
