This has to be one of the best Mexican Restaurants in Southern Calif! The staff is friendly and really wants to make sure you are having a great meal. The chips come to the table hot! The food tastes so good, you just want to stay there and have more. There is outside dining as well. Location is clean and... More

Yes, this is in an old bank. Food, service and ambiance was great. I got the Tostada Supreme with carnitas for 11.95. Guests got shrimp salad; salad and tortilla soup and the car;nitas plate. Margaritas were really good also. Great location for going to the Temecula Theater.

Nice meal in the heart of Old Temecula in an old bank building. It was a good Mexican meal and nice to have the choice between refried or black beans.

Great location in Old Towne Temecula. In an old bank building. Worth a read about the thwarted bank robbery. Burritos were very good. Chips were a little thick for my taste. Sit outside and watch the world drift by.

Located on busy Front Street in Old Town Temecula, this restaurant has been around for a very long time. I first ate there in the late 1970's while traveling through to Lake Cuyamaca. I had wonderful things to say back then, but not this time. The best part of the visit was that we were promptly seated, but after that,... More

So, we've been here twice and have sat at the outside bar both times. They do have indoor seating however. We just like the casualness of outside. The margaritas are great! So are the tostados and oh yes the guacamole! We really enjoy the atmosphere, the drinks and the food here. We will go back the next time we are... More
