Enjoy tacos, burritos and tostadas. I enjoyed the cheese Quesadilla. Guacamole was very very good. Margaritas were good. Had a kick !! Amazing internal design of collectables, plates, photos with ex Presidents and memorabilia. Not fancy but enjoy with family or friends.

we went on Friday Night and naturally it was very crowded but we didn't have to wait too long and the waiters took their time explaining items on the menu. No one rushed you. Very pleasant.

This is a great, traditional Mexican restaurant just down from Best Western Dana Point. For the adventerous, they have their own Congac, which is fabulous, but is expensive.
