I’m always hesitant to try Mexican food for fear of disappointment. This place is exceptional. Service was a bit stretched but friendly and attentive. The menu has originals. Everything we were served was good or terrific.

Description
New restaurant in little Madras serving fresh, gourmet Mexican and tantalizing margaritas. The food is unusual, beautifully presented and the owner is a gem. Cost is very reasonable. Meals are quite large (enough for 2).
