We went for dinner, It is very similar to another mexican restaurant. The enchiladas have plenty of cheese, the rice was good and I like the refried beans.I ordered a la carte and my friend ordered the salad. The salad was huge, and we took plenty of leftovers home because the plates are big.

Have been to the Londonderry location and the Derry location and have to say the Derry location is much better. Food is higher quality and the staff seems much friendlier. Always get the Chile verde plate and love it! Would recommend!!

Middle of the road Mexican food. Usually a 20 minute wait at peak times on Friday and Saturday. Just do not expect to have a leisurely experience. Drink orders are taken and delivered immediately. Dinner orders are in and out of the kitchen and in front of you within 10-12 minutes, and absent a drink refill, your check is pleasantly... More

Stopped by for a quick drink with friends and had the best Margarita north of Mexico. Had the Silver Patron Jamaican style. Great queso, chips and nachos. Really good atmosphere, but can be noisy when trying to have a conversation.

happy to know that we can drop in - most anytime of day or day of the week and get a good meal! we love to sit at the bar as it's entertaining! Probably the one complaint we have is that the chips/salsa - the chips are always broken or we get the bottom of the barrel. Of all their... More

Very popular place, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. The salsa they give you is mild, if you like to walk on the wild side a little ask for the spicy salsa. It has heat plus good flavor. A nice, cold margarita helps to cool off your tongue. It can be a touch loud in the restaurant and the... More

Having lived in San Diego for 3+ years, it is as close to the food I enjoyed as I've found here in 'Nuh Hampshuh.'

This is one of the best "authentic" Mexican restaurants in the area. Great value and for the amount of food that you get.
