Great portions and delicious Mexican food - the service is quick and the food authentic. The owner is wonderful and usually overseeing what's happening - which is always great.

Went here last night, spit of the moment. Glad we did "senior citizen" dining hours because by the time we left (just after 6), there was a wait list. The place is tiny but the food is good and the staff is friendly.

The food here is great, the people are friendly and the price is very reasonable. Located at the center of Boonton high street its a little know treasure. There is no liquor licence so bring your own

If you're looking for a relaxing dinner out, this is not the place. If you want good food, generous portions and reasonable prices, you should give it a try. It's small and noisy, but the food is great and the people are friendly.

Our appetizer arrived quickly,chorizo nachos which were not listed on the menu but was easily made when I requested it. Tasty- the chorizo was chunky, not crumbled down which was a good thing. Zippy but not... More

This restaurant is a delight. Although small in size inside, it is simply delicious and fresh food every time. BYOB too! Authentic mexican food with large portions and can usually be shared unless saved for next day's meal. Everything here is great. Time it right for dinner on weekends, because usually gets crowded and may have to wait. Take-Out is... More

I tried this place based on the reviews and was looking forward to some good Mexican food, but unfortunately that is not what I got. Everything was bland. The guacamole was simply mashed avocados and had nothing else in it. The steak fajita lacked seasoning and was also very bland. In addition, it did not even come in a skillet... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try this restaurant because ever time I searched online for restaurants in Boonton this was in the top 3. The place was packed when we arrived and we were seated at a small table right in the middle and we felt we were in everyone's way who was coming or going. We were constantly... More
