Recently stopped in to try this place out and ended up finding a delicious spot to eat good Mexican food. The staff were nice, place cleans and food authentic. Not a big place and decent pricing.

I met a group of friends for dinner and drinks and was pleasantly surprised. The decor was light, airy and very comfortable. The margaritas were fabulous as well as the service and food.

Every time I come here the food, service and staff are phenomenal!! I have tried almost everything on the menu and they get it right every time!! Their Margaritas are the best in Bridgeport!

I've been here a number of times since it's in my neighborhood. There are many other really authentic Mexican restaurants in the area that are better choices. I've never found the staff to be very friendly here...and the service is below average.
