Have been here a few times now. Food is always great! Service is also top notch. The Margaritas will not disappoint. If you like Mexican food I would recommend a stop here. I ordered the Stuffed Sopapia.

With lots of mexican food options in Brighton, we dont come here often. The food is not amazing, but we do enjoy the outdoor seating on a nice sunny day. Its a busy location, right in the heart of Brighton.
