My wife ordered a salad. The kids your basic Mexican fare that I can't remember. My wife's arrived with cheese on it which is not vegan.... More

Great menu selection, large portions, fast and friendly service and was reasonably priced. We were tired, hungry and the rest of the town seemed to be closed down. We found a little piece of Mexico tucked away at the end of Water Street.

Nothing special or out of the ordinary in the food department - these Tex/Cal/Mex establishments check all the boxes, right down to the chewy cheese always sprinkled on the refritos, and of course the kitschy decor. So you've "been here before", and there won't be surprises. I will say that the managers and servers are very nice and courteous, and... More

My wife and I had one night to celebrate 32 years of marriage and we decided to stay close to home and go to Port Townsend. I read all kinds of reviews for the restaurants in town on Yelp and Tripadvisor. Due to the numerous food allergies that my wife suffers from we had to avoid all of the restaurants... More

We had lunch here today. The food was very good, the service was good, and the decor was nice. The location is on the Main Street in the old city downtown.

My crowd love Mexican food and so when we saw this place during an exploration of Port Townsend they could not be persuaded to have anything else. Fortunately it hit the spot perfectly - the food was excellent, ambience of the restaurant was great and service was attentive. A great place to have lunch.

We enjoy Mexican food and ordered enchiladas. These were excellent. We would call in anytime again. Prices were reasonable.

It is a sweet restaurant with brick walls, carpeted floors and red tables that are mostly four tops. The menu is a typical Mexican fare. I enjoy the vegetarian choices on any menu and this has some good selections. The staff is efficient and the wait to be seated short.
