Long time customers, but no more. Had the Relleno entre, which was very over-priced at $22 but the size of an appetizer and bland. Had to go home and eat a second dinner just to go to bed feeling a bit full. Wrote owner personally...More

This place serves exquisite food and drinks. We started with excellent fish tacos -- perfect Mexican sea bass -- and queso fundido along with outstanding margaritas. The meal continued with four really good entrees: carne asada, chicken mole, barbacoa tostadas, and grilled goat.

We had the guacamole and corn as appetizers and it's fantastic. If I go back, I'll get these two as my meal. Definitely worth going.

If the weather is nice, request a table on the patio and enjoy a lovely meal. The menu has lots of enticing choices, but the chilaquiles may be the best option. The service the morning we went was friendly and attentive, and we had a...More

Terribly slow, detached service, something is amiss at this spot that we used to love. Too bad-hope they can overcome whatever the problems are
