Had a group of 4 office colleagues for dinner at this restaurant on a weekday night. Service was efficient and the food was good. Lots of menu options. Just be careful for that 60 oz $29 margarita!

I've gone back a couple of times hoping for a better result. Each time I went I looked at the specials and was told not available. Wrong time, happy hour was over 5 minutes ago, only on Mondays.

We did enjoy our meal here, though I would not label the meal as being much out of the ordinary. However, this was the first Mexican restaurant I'd been to which served warm bean dip with the chips, in addition to the salsas, and I really enjoyed that part a lot. I ordered a combo dinner with enchilada and tamale,... More

We dined here for a birthday dinner. The service was on the slow side and my meal and a few of the others were only warm when served. The salsa served with the chips were both very good.

We called ahead to find they don’t take reservations, but as we had a group of eight, the kept our group in mind. We didn’t have to wait and we got a big table together on a Friday night. We ordered the pitcher of margaritas, which was adequate for two light drinkers and two not-so-light. I can vouch for the... More

This place is the best Mexican place I've had in this area. The salsa was fresh and tasty, they also serve refried beans with your chips. The margarita were fantastic, $5 on Wednesdays! And the app combo, everything on it was amazing. I can't wait to go back!

We were really disappointed with this experience. The reviews were really good, so we were excited about another great Mexican experience in California. But the food tasted like it was from a can, not home cooked. After multiple fantastic Mexican meals all over Northern California, it was a sad way to end our trip.
