This is our go to Mexican restaurant in the city; including my in-laws favourite place since they started coming in the 70s. Everything from their margaritas, to entrees, to homemade chocolate cake is delicious! Portions are huge and very tasty. Don't let the tiny dining...More

Laid back atmosphere and good food, make sure you get there early especially on the weekends. Great starter chips and salsa to spark your appetite for a great tasting meal. Perfect size portions to fill any hungry persons craving mexican food.

AMAZING Salsa with you chips to start. Meals were very good, not to big but not to small. Perfect sized. And the chocolate cake is most definetly worth saving space for. Not very Mexican, but really who cares it's that good.

Simple food.Great salsa and chips. Portions large enough to share 2 meals with 2 adults/2 kids. Nice ambiance. Full of locals. You know it's good. Been there for years.

This small spot cranks out amazing guacamole, enchiladas, tacos and burritos. A gem. Food is consistently good and the staff are very friendly. Can be crazy busy as is very popular. Small place so not good for big groups .

I visited Topanga with my husband and children. Despite appearing like a family type place it isn't. There was no children's menu and the waitress seemed lost on how to accommodate children. All in all the good was good.

Our nachos were amazing! The chicken enchilada with jalapeño was a bit too spicy, next time I won't get the jalapeño. The "wet" burritos were the best!!!!

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative

Yes, there were people picking up their food to go while we ate there. It's a small place and hard to get a table Fri/Sat nights, so it looked like the locals were picking up instead of waiting.
