A friend and I dined here and had delicious flautas and enchiladas. There were also beer specials that night. A man sang in Spanish and played lovely guitar, not too loud. This tiny hole in the wall has half paved and half dirt parking, and is located in the middle of nowhere, Indio, with storage warehouses and scrub brush around... More

We 3 chose from a highly varied menu most of which was derived from Tex-Mex cooking. They appeared to have a lot of different fish and seafood based dishes. I chose the beef fajitas. They were served steaming and sizzling with plenty of vegetables but the beef was over done. She chose the mole' in chiladas and really like them... More

Fantastic Mexican food, reasonable prices and outstanding service. The shrimp fajitas are out of this world and so are the tamales. Our waiter David was the best ! Don't miss this place if you're in the desert.

I hadn't been here for 10 years, but while on vacation in Indio remembered eating here and wanted to go again, hoping it was as good as I remembered. Four people were with me and were teasing that it better be good. Well it was as good as Good and then some. The wait and service staff were unbelievably accommodating.... More

We ate here with friends who frequent this place and spoke highly of it. We didn't find it to be anything special with regard to the menu. The offerings were pretty standard for a Mexican restaurant, the food was good but not outstanding and the environment was unremarkable. One nice feature was the live musician who played during the dinner... More
