Don't endure the aggravation. We were 1 of only 2 tables in the restaurant. AFTER we ordered our food 4 other groups came with 2 to 4 people each. All 4 tables got food before we did. The food wasn't awful but they made way to many mistakes. The usual starter tortilla chips were the worst we ever had. They... More

This little restaurant is a big surprise. Very cute inside and our waitress was the cutest young woman. She spoke excellent English and was able to explain all of the menu items. This is definitely a Mexican restaurant and not Tex Mex which I am used to. I ordered the beef and my friend ordered the pork enchiladas. I think... More

We entered and there were 2 other people seated. The inside looks old, outdated and not clean. I was outvoted and we stayed. Outside looked similar. We should have left. Very friendly male server greeted us. Tried to order drink, a soda and one of the beers on the menu... He came back to say NO soda and only 1... More

My friend took me to this place 5 years ago and I haven't stop going! I tell my friends and they tell their friends, every one loves it here! The food is to die for and the atmosphere is fun, staff is friendly! Thank you for the great food and hospitality!

Friendly atmosphere, awesome service and food. We tried many Mexican restaurants in Florida and this one tops. Chips and salsa very good. Tacos very good. Favorite meal is chimichanga.

We have gone here so many times and raved on the food. This year after a couple visits I'm done. This year the waitresses checked their phone or looked in the mirror every couple minutes. They were out of tequila for margaritas but sent someone for some. I tried something different this time instead of the burrito but not as... More

Don't drive right past this small Tamiami Trail locale. The food is very good, the prices are decent, and service was spectacular. Happy hour is 4-8 daily. The corn tortillas they use are wonderful, making many dishes do much better than the typical Mexican chain restaurant. My only negative was a lack of personality in some of the salsas that... More

So many Mexican spots, this one did nothing for me. My friend liked her meal, mine was inedible but for the rice and beans. I mean how do you screw up chicken and rice? Well, they managed to find a way. Service didn't do anything to make up for it.

The restaurant is small but the service and food are great! You can taste the freshness of the guacamole and all the food. I highly recommend.
