Description: Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.

The main reason I didn't rate this Very Good was because the top shelf margarita with 3 liquors I ordered was weak and disappointingly small for the $10.49 price, compared to other restaurants. The carne asada was very tender, juicy and flavorful. The side of veggies had a very spicy seasoning on it that made me cough, and I like spicy so it was too much. The service was friendly and efficient.

First time here today.

Once seated, we were offered generous portions of chips and some really delicious, hot salsa!

This is more of a South Western type cuisine than Tex-Mex.
Loved the chicken mango salad that I had. Very healthy. It came with black beans, corn, some cheese, delicious grilled chicken, mango, greens. Great size too.

Others in the group enjoyed their entrees.

My sister had a chicken fajita salad. Again, all very fresh and healthy ingredients. Generous portion of chicken too.

My husband had enchiladas (chicken), which came with an option of beans & rice or grilled vegetables. He ate it all and gave it a thumbs up!

Another in our party had a chicken burrito bowl. While he enjoyed it, he though the portion was a bit small, but it was delicious.

We all liked the fact that there seem to be healthy options here.

Our server, Nick, was attentive and helpful.

Would most definitely return.

This the best Mexican that we have found in the greater Hartford area so far. Food is good, and service attentive and friendly.

We come for lunch often and always have a great experience. The wait staff is friendly and conscientious. The food is always fresh and hot. We ordered the guac live appetizer where our waiter made the guacomole in front of us. It was made perfectly to our liking and was delicious. We also ordered empanadas that came with a side of rice, beans and queso. All of the food was excellent, not to mention the margharitas. We will definitely come back again and again!
