Of all the Mexican places in town, it's good. Nothing outstanding nothing really bad. I've been a couple of times since it's opened and unless others suggest it, there are other places I like more.

Good food, lots of it. Great service. Very busy on a Friday night visit but it was worth it. After a short wait we were seated and enjoyed our meal.

The steak tacos are very good, had some guacamole, it was ok. I wanted some authentic cheese and onion enchiladas, but I asked what kind of cheese was used and was told mozzarella. Should be queso fresco, oh well, that's why I got the steak tacos.

Our family (4 adults and a toddler) went for Sunday dinner. The place was crowded - but the staff took very good care of us, the food was above average, and we were able to have a relaxed meal together. The drinks were good and fairly priced. We've been here before - and we will be back.

My favorite Valparaiso Mexican restaurant and obviously a favorite with others as well. It's always crowded on Fridays and weekends. The menu is large and diverse. The dining room is very pleasant and the service is great.

This restaurant has great food and fast service. The restrooms are very clean and new. I can't recommend this place more! Pork tacos are very good, great portions and ingredients.
