We eat there about every two weeks. The food is good and very filling. The staff is friendly and always willing to help in anyway possible. They know their "regulars" and all our friends want to eat there when they are in town. The best "local waterhole" in Duarte.

Food was at best average and lacked flavors traditionally associated with Mexican style food. Chicken enchiladas tasted like they had been prepared in advance and then served with different flavored sauces to try to impart that particular flavor to the food. This did not work well in my opinion. The service was okay, but somewhat inattentive considering there were only... More

We almost feel that we are visiting family when we come here. There's a new waiter called "Rick" or "Ricardo" who is also efficient and friendly. All of the staff here are amazing. Usually I get a salad with the "works", beef, beans, greens, tomatoes. sour cream and guacamole. A margarita goes very well with this dish.

We were there on a Friday night and they had hot appetizers [chicken wings] free! I ordered a margarita which is very good there. Service is always good and friendly, never disappointed with it.

This is our hangout with all of the friendly people serving us. I have eaten at Mexican restaurants all over Los Angeles and Riverside counties and always return to this great place. If you don't know what you want tell them and they will create something off the menu that you will love. They greet us with hugs when we... More

I ate here one night as I was staying in a hotel just down the street; good food with a great bartender who made great drinks. It felt like a good family-owned restaurant with Mexican food as food as anywhere. Not a romantic locale or location, but a very comfortable place for Mexican food on old Route 66. I would... More

Parking is in the rear, I advise arriving and leaving while it's light outside; the area doesn't feel safe. It felt like we were underground, or in a cave, and it was too dark inside. The service was great; the waiters were nice and attentive. The salsa and chips were delicious, but the accompanying beans smelled and tasted like vomit... More

Two doors down from Days Inn, Duarte. 'Delicious' sums it all up. Service: Attentive. Prices were reasonable as well.
