This place has always been our favorite. i think it has very good prices for the amount of food. It's tasty, with big portions, and a really nice salsa bar. Also, very good service, what more could you ask for?!

The menu is varied. The food is exceptional and very authentic Mexican. Service is wonderful. Weather permitting the outside seating area is comfortable and enjoyable. Staff is so helpful and accommodating. Meal value is great.

We just love this restaurant. Some of the best food you can get in Lake County. It is family owned, and everybody is helpful and kind- fantastic service. The salsa bar is great and portions are generous.

This is a small place just off of Lakeshore Drive. Three guys are cooking - that's a good sign! Mexican-fusion at its best! Had the grilled salmon and it was wonderful! Good food at a low price! Too bad they have closed until January 2!

One of the few lunch places around. Nice hospitable people and the food is worth the price (maybe a little bit too pricy). But where else you gonna go? Not very fluent English but you will get your order taken care of.

This is an interesting and more sophisticated restaurant in Clearlake. I ordered the salmon taco, which was excellent, and the chile relleno, which was mediocre (mostly just a mass of melted cheese). Nice atmosphere, good service. They also have an outdoor patio. Good salsa bar...More
