This is my husband's favorite Mexican restaurant and he knows Mexican food after working in Mexico for over a year. Food and drinks are excellent with generous portions. The service is also outstanding! Highly recommend!

The food here rivals restaurants in Southern California. I just moved back to Washington and didn't think I would find any good Mexican food. I was wrong, give this place a try

We ate there last week for dinner and enjoyed an excellent Mexican dinner. I had a superb burrito with shredded beef that was one of the best I have ever had!

I love this place and will definitely go again. There is a large menu with something for everyone, including vegetarian. Meals are $10-16. When you are served your chips and salsa, you are also given Mexican cole slaw; seasoned cabbage and cilantro - so good! Our meals were served piping hot. The service was friendly, knowledgeable, and fast! I loved... More

I eat there and order take out frequently. The food is always great. I love this place and apparently a lot of people share my opinion because it's always busy. This place is one of our favorites.

We have been coming here for years. Family owned, super friendly people, can't beat the atmosphere right across from the harbor. Food and service are top knotch, and especially their salsa is the best on the planet earth. Huge portions of food.

We stopped in with a party of 7, and they sat and served us promptly. Portions were large and the menu selections were many and varied. The quality was good. I would go here again, and think it is one of the better Mexican restaurants we have tried in the area.
