Never had a bad meal here, very generous portions, reasonably priced, and delicious. Best mole sauce I've ever had.

This is our families favorite spot. Always great service and the freshest food. There is no other place in the greater Bristol area for Mexican food. We have family and friends from West Hartford that meet us there too. A must try for everyone!

Great drinks and food. You can even buy pitchers of Margaritas. Nice place to go with your friends or family.

Excellent food. Staff was friendly and very capable. The place looks very comfortable and it was. The exterior is deceiving. But the food and service is worth going inside for. We will go back.

You wouldn't guess from the outside, but this has the best Mexican food around here. It's worth it to upgrade your margarita to one of the better tequilas. Staff is friendly, service is good and they've recently expanded.

Service was slow, though the staff was friendly. Salsa and creamy pepper dip were excellent. Food was as advertised, and the servings were large. Non-Alcoholic drinks were bottled, I would have liked brewed ice tea. Took forever between finishing our meal and getting our check/jpayment made. We had a 20% off coupon, Might go back again, but not at the... More

I stopped here while in Bristol on a failed visit to the New England Carousel Museum (closed for hibernation!). Based on great TripAdvisor ratings, I ventured in, as the location is underwhelming. The food is good and the jalapeño avocado sauce for the chips is simply grand. Hot and lovely! Service was very good too.

This is a family run restaurant that has flourished over the years. Their success speaks to the quality of their food and service. The place just works well. We have been there many times. We have some favorites such as the taquitos lindos, fish tacos, the various combination plates but I suggest if you go to pick what you like.... More

Above all, great mexican food, one of the best in the state by me. Friendly, attentive service. Unassuming location in a Bristol strip mall, but nicely decorated inside. A bit hard to find but well worth the effort!
