Noticed this restaurant on our way through Ashland in February and decided to stop for lunch. Decent food, a bit salty but that's to be expected when dining out. No seafood on the menu as far as I could tell. I always order shrimp tacos but had a quesadilla fajita instead. Huge portion, split it with my son. The service... More

We ate here in August while visiting the Apostles. Our food was excellent...the problem (which I just don't get) was that when we received our credit card bill after returning home, we discovered our waiter had added $0.80 to our tip. We gave him a 20% tip because his service was good. Not sure why he felt he was owed... More

Service was friendly and unbelievably fast and efficient-barely seated, literally, when water, chips and salsa were placed on our table. Tasty margaritas and awesome food. Our first visit and we will be back every time we are in Ashland.

Every once in awhile we go to this restaurant as a group. It's a VERY busy place, so make sure to give yourself enough time if you're planning to eat here. The food is pretty good and the margaritas are especially delicious.

Read the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try while on vacation in the area, super glad we did. As soon as we were seated we were greeted with chips & salsa (one of my favs). Food was great. Drinks were HUGE. Portions were perfect. It's a small restaurant but being a party of 8 we were... More

Ate here twice last year while on vacation in the area. Ate here again twice in July while in the area on vacation. It was delicious again. Had chicken fajitas. They were great. Very tasty. We also shared the chorizo cheese dip and that was very good. The peach margaritas are delicious too. Make sure you specify regular or small,... More

The minute you sit down the waiters bring you chips and salsa and your drink. I ordered Chilies Rellenos and they were delicious. The food is very good and three large platters are very filling.

Love their mexican food. They start you out with fresh deep fried chips and salsa but we order the Guacamole because it's that good. Then the specials and drinks are great and the food is fantastic. We drive nearly 30 minutes from Ironwood to eat there frequently and see many people from Ironwood eating there too.
