This is one of our family's local favorites... everything we've had is delicious and the service is always excellent. I've been here at all hours of the day and they always strive to make the meal the best possible. Favorites are: hard shell tacos with everything on them, burritos, shrimp cocktail, and their guacamole is always fresh and fabulous!

Great food and service and the margaritas are delicious (and strong)! The burritos are huge and oh so good. For something smaller I love to get the tostada.

My first good sign was noticing that I was one of just a few Gringo's in this bustling restaurant filled with Mexican and Latino families. The food is great, inexpensive, authentic and away from the buzz of downtown Palm Springs.

Tables need to be wiped off more often, cleared. Hard to find a clean table when you go in. I got my food to go, just easier. Good food, they just need to bus the tables more.

We arrived here at 17 pm clearly very hungry cause we didn't had lunch due to a long trip from Vegas. I found this place on tripadvisor and choose it because of the good reviews. Didn't disappoint me at all! The waitress speaks an hard-to- understand english but she's so kind! She brought us nachos with spicy sauce and limes.... More
