We rented out the restaurant for a large group of 50 and the food was incredible. Buffet-style with authentic Mexican food. Everything was so good and fresh. The staff was really helpful. Set back away from town on the river.

Outdoor eating spot, but covered from the direct sun and rain. Ordered the tortilla soup and thought it was the best I've ever had. Delicious food in a totally laid back atmosphere.
