We went to this restaurant with low expectation, but it far, far surpassed them. We were drawn in by the mariachi band, who were terrific. But the fajitas were very good (we had chicken and beef - beef a bit chewy, chicken perfect), the margueritas and cuba libres were excellent and the atmosphere was huge fun. We had a dance,... More

Met at Mexicali with couple of friends. We had some starters to share followed by mains. The food was delicious and fresh. Gentelmen who served us made sure that we enjoyed every moment of the evening, excellent service! We couldn't resist not to try churros and beautiful hot chocolate cake. Keep it up guys!
