We were very pleased with our meal and the service. Our order was taken quickly and our food was out almost immediately! The chips were crisp and tender. I had the Mexicana Burrito. Very good. My husband had enchiladas and was also pleased with his choice. Would eat here again.

A nice Mexican class restaurant with good service and food.

It's as good as any Mexican place I've eaten at but I prefer seafood when down here.

Would return.

Freezing outside so spicy hit the spot. Whitney was our server. I couldn't ask for better. Patient and helpful. My wife loved her carnitas and the restaurant itself! Our grown children really liked their burritos and the salsas. I ordered the chicken Diablo. Outstanding. I've had many dishes that were "spicy". Some were very tame or too hot for any flavor to come though. This was perfect. Tender chicken breast laden with jalapenos and covered with a great cheese sauce. I'm sold.

What a great find. Made it there for lunch today. Having Mexican in a seafood mecca like Orange Beach may not fit in with some folks plans, this is my fifth day here and I wanted a break from gumbo, fish and shrimp. The place was the perfect divergence. Loved it. Loved the thin Nacho chips and perfectly seasoned salsa. I chose a combo of rice, refried beans and two scrumptious chili rellenos. Really, really good. No complaints, no suggestions...other than it could have been offered for free. Loved it, would most definitely go back if I had time.
