First of all, their fish and seafood dishes are delicious. As with everything else, all prepared to order, and servings are huge. Who would's thought to go to a Mexican restaurant for seafood? What a wonderful surprise. We have had many seafood and fish (many are combo) dishes there. All top-notch. But, the other day, I had a hankering for... More

Growing number of Mexican food places in Hooville. Decent grub at a reasonable price. Lots of competition for the type of cuisine helps ensure that the prices are moderate, and generally good. This place had a lot of choices, and the service was good.

I have been there a couple of times, it's OK Mexican food. Like most average Mexican restaurants prices are in line with the food

We saw the waitress 3 times, she brought the menus, took the order, and brought us our check. Never checked in to see if we needed anything; the place was virtually empty. The chicken in the spinach enchiladas was virtually non-existent, tough, grisly, and looked like leftover bits. So we are talking $7.50 for a pile or rice, and 2... More

Tableside guacamole was delicious . Service was okay but our waitress did not speak English so it was challenging at times. Food tasted like a chain restaurant which is what it is!

Was specifically looking for a restaurant with tableside guac making, so we chose this place. This was our first time here. The guac was good, and the food tasted fine. The problem was that we never saw our waitress, so we ran low on the basics, and the empty, used dishes began to pile. Then, when our order came out,... More

When in town we try to catch a meal here. As usual it did not disappoint. The service is friendly, fast and the food is good. An adult beverage to complete the experience. If you're a guacamole fan, they make it to order at tableside.

Service was fast and friendly. I had one of the specialty margaritas and it was good, not watered down like in a lot of places. Great portions and reasonable prices.

We stop on our way back from the beach. Around 4:30 on a Tuesday. The service was poor. The food was way to salty. I got the Baja Burrito is definitely not Chipotle. My daughter got the churros, they're not good at all. Mediocre. Will not be going back.

After having waited for more than 20 minutes in a booth at the competing Mexican restaurant on Richmond Highway/Pantops, and nothing at all having been brought to our table: no water, no nachos, no salsa..., we got up and left. We had eaten there several times before, and I wrote nice, well-deserved reviews. But, tonight was different. So, we drove... More
