This is not your traditional Mexican restaurant. This is upscale Mexican food at a reasonable price. The chips and salsa are tasty and unique. The menu is small, but each dish is great. I recommend doing the seasonal specials that they have. These tend to...More

Fish tacos maybe ..anything else has no taste and certainly not Mexican food. I would rate this restaurant mediocre at best.

Probably the best fish tacos in Ogden. All of the ingredients tasted really fresh. The plate was beautiful and colorful. The corn tortillas were a little soggy, but what can you do when you've got all that fresh pineapple and cucumber deliciousness stuffed in?

I was looking forward to dining here. Great reviews and directly across from hotel. WOw, I can't understand the ratings, except they provide large portions, so, if that's your thing, you might like it. Our chili rellenos were majorly fried and quite disgusting. Most things,...More

Amazing food and service! Many options on the menu, but not so many that you have to thumb through fifty pages before you find what you're wanting to eat. Fun and energetic atmosphere, but still able to carry on conversations. Had a great time!

Love this place. The food is fantastic and a nice welcoming atmosphere to boot. The chips and salsa are really good, and the chimichangas are awesome.
