Last 2 visits were awful. NEVER going back! Today it took over an hour to get drinks. Other tables after us were attended to before us. We had to flag down several people, several time to be waited on. Food took forever to get and when we did, some was wrong and some were gross. My husband got up to... More

We stopped in on a Sunday morning not expecting much and stumbled into the best Mexican Restaurant in Lancaster California. Their Sunday Brunch was insane and the individual dishes even better.

The food is excellent, and the bar is the place to be during Happy Hour for an appetizer buffet and cocktail specials that are fit for modest budgets. I don't recommend Karioke but they do draw a crowd. Can't beat the price for a night out.

This place is the best especially for serious margarita hunters. A local fav here!!! They offer a delicious vegetarian enchilada plate; its soooo good!!! This is a great place to bring friends for drinks and karaoke! I'm not sure they still offer karaoke. But who cares, the food and drinks are great. There are plenty of surrounding stores in walking... More

I've gone before and the food was good but recently it's been lacking good taste. Last time I went they gave me under cooked food! Never again.

Large portion and fair price. They were packed with people and we were not in a rush so we enjoyed the chip and fresh made guacamole. I would come again!!!!

Out of all the Mexican places to eat I find this to be the best to my liking. I am not really big on Mexican food as I find it does not agree with my system. However, I can eat the Mexican food in Don Cuco and have found this place for many years even in Simi Valley. My digestion... More
