A good friend of mine introduced this to me and I am glad he did. My wife and I love Mexican food and for the south end of the county, this is a great stop. There was a while that there was some entertainment, not the greatest thing to do because it did not add to the atmosphere. This is a small family ran business that makes good food for a good price
location is kinda out of the way and you really have to know where to look or you will miss it. It is a smaller restaurant so there is limited seating area but there is usually room when I have gone. With winter approaching though, try to sit away from the door because the Spanish canyon breeze comes right in..
There are about 50/50 booths and tables.. the booths are comfortable as long as you fit.. I had to switch places with my wife because the table is mounted and favored one bench over the other (I could not fit, I am big but not that big). The regular tables are typical of most Mexican restaurants around.. not the best quality but good enough
Like I mentioned before, they had a Harmonica playing Ventriloquist in there for a while that did not work to add to the atmosphere. The last time I was in there was a TV going with sports but it was all in Spanish (Not to bad) but, I usually prefer some authentic music playing quite enough you can still carry on conversation but loud enough to hear.
As a family ran business, Service can be hit and miss. Overall though, it has been good. In the past several times I have been there, it is apparent that they are trying new things to “keep up” so that is a good thing. I always prefer bad service with signs of getting better over OK service that is quickly declining. High Chairs are limited and need work ( straps are missing on all of them). Be aware of that if you are taking little ones..
Food was great! I have eaten here several times and have yet to dislike anything.. Although it is a gamble, most of the time they have their own homemade chips and salsa that is really good, don’t go too late though because if they run out, they switch to store bought.. The below pictures of the food are what we had the last time.. no editing just as the pic was taken from my phone.
I have ordered several things but this time I got the “kitchen sink burrito” which, yes that is a full sized fork – it was huge. My wife got the “Camarones costa Bravada” and where it says “Spicy” there is no lie, the sauce is served on the side and is VERY hot.. Good though.
Like I said, we have eaten there several times so obviously it is a keeper.. I would recommend the owner giving the atmosphere some attention and a little work to the tables but other than that, its great!
