Most authentic Mexican I have found in Wellington. Pitchers of margaritas $25, somewhat spendy for 150ml. Great enchiladas. Get chips and guac, not salsa, because they are the same price.

I love this little place, they started small and now have a few shops around. The food is awesome but they have far too much cheese. The ambience is very Mexican, you feel a world away from the dark alley way you've just walked through...More

I've been to USA over 7 times and to say I'm a Mexican food enthusiast is an understatement. So trust me when I say this place is as real as it gets to true blue Mexican-style tacos, enchiladas, quesadilas... The works!! El pastor (pork) and...More

Went on a Friday night and it was very busy, friendly helpful staff. Food was good, enjoyed the guacamole. If you are getting a jug of Margarita get a straw not two glasses.
