The food wasn't bad but I've had better and less pricey. Service is good. Honestly in my opinion the best Mexican food is in the mission district in San Francisco.

OK, been here several times and for me, it's a destination worth the trek. A little off the beaten path and maybe even a bit tawdry on the outside ... but come on in and enjoy the authentic south-of-the-border fare served by Juanita her ownself. As my experience is with lunch, I can't vouch for the later in the day... More

This was recommended by a local winery and for good reason. On busy Arnold Drive but outdoor seating in purposeful graffiti painted courtyard. Mission style burritos and warm homemade chips. Brother-sister wait staff are dynamito. This sparked imaginative scenes for my third book "Victus."

The enchiladas here are great! I usually like the green sauce better but the red sauce is good, too. The dishes are huge! The taco salad is good as are the cips and salsa. It is nice to sit outside on the patio, indoors is a little funky with a bar with rickety barstools. They do offer beer and wine... More

Great Mexican food, burritos, tacos, special plates. (The best ever soup in wintertime). Good selection of beers. Friendly service. No frills location just outside of the Sonoma town. Excellent place for a fun lunch.

This local Mexican joint was recommended by some local restaurants. Pretty much a shack with good Mexican fare. No credit cards, no hard liquor, but good authentic food with several beers on tap. The chips and salsa verde were excellent, the Prawn Chipotle plate and bean bowl (large) were very good. If you want some quick authentic Mexican fare in... More

They only make them every other night . So call ahead and get the enchiladas with green sauce. You will think you have died and gone to heaven. One of the owners has spent time in Costa Rica so the cooking here has a little more pissazz then your average Mexican food.

This restaurant is in a dilapidated building in Sonoma. It serves some of the best Mexican food we have ever eaten. It has been there for over 20 years and locals swear by its consistent food. We make a special trip just to go there!
