Our adult family had dinner here. Wonderful Mexican food with some Native American dishes and spices mixed in. Great margaritas, happy staff. It is an all around fun place to eat. Try Ole' if you are really hungry! The salmon dish was wonderful!

This was chosen by my friend, who lives in Fallbrook, and raved about it, so off we went. It is very casual, and they let us choose wherever we wanted to sit. We chose a table vs. a booth. Better lighting and the table for...More
