If I don't want to go to a restaurant for margaritas this is the place I go. Usually I come here for lunch since my office is close by. I have not had anything bad, they are a little busy at lunch but call in your order and you will be fine.

Food and dessert overall very good, drinlks very good also, service was good and prices were reasonable. Ambiance was good, lots of locals visit frequently and it gets pretty crowded at night, plenty of parking

The restaurant manager helped us with the dish choices. I love spicey food and had the chilli verde which was hot. I was surprised that most dishes are not spicey but one controls the spiceyness by adding the hot red or green sauces. The food is delicious and the price is reasonable.

For a drink I had a Mist and my wife had water. The Mist drink was refreashing, without being too sugary. We were both surprised at the... More

This place is next to the Starbucks so easy to find. I visited the restaurant a year ago and really enjoyed. I went back and the food was absolutely solid. Their tortilla chips are so fresh and tasty, a true test. The staff are the same, which says a lot about the owner, and the restaurant is spotless, i.e. clean... More

Not really my type place. You order at the counter and serve your own drinks I think. Very casual. Like a fast food place. Very popular with locals based on price. The food is OK but there are lots of better Mexican places around.

Pretty good Mexican food in Desert Hot Springs. We got our dinners for take away . Nothing really outstanding in MHO but just good overall. A casual, safe bet in Desert Hot Springs.

Ridiculously brightly lit, with ridiculously loud music, a storefront taqueria opening onto a parking lot. Not sure what the secret is, but the food was delicious. I had a tostada, and the refried beans were really good, just like a previous reviewer said they would be. Their pico de gallo salsa is super good too. So probably not a good... More

Went back for dinner and had the carnitas, which was cooked to perfection, nice char on the outside and falling apart tender. The best refried beans every...usually you get some... More
