This was my first time and I was impressed. While you order at the counter, they bring your meal to you. The food is fresh, the serving sizes are adequate and the price is fair. Definitely a "return to place".

I felt like I entered a cool spot in Mexico! Everything was delicious especially the homemade chips and multiple homemade salsas. The outdoor seating areas are large and the menu is varied. Very traditional Mexican food and authentic!

Perfectly serviceable, good Mexican food but the ambiance is extraordinary. Set in the midst of a folk art park- a delightful and original piece of Americana. Do not miss this!!!
