I really wanted to love this place. I think they need to invest in cleaning up the restaurant and updating everything. The place looked filthy. So aside from that, the food was just ok. The chips and salsa were good. I'm not sure when I'll be returning to this restaurant. Still on the hunt for the perfect Mexican restaurant!

Nothing special here – not bad, standard fare, but not outstanding. Small chain in Lancaster with 5 establishments, good for family eating, same as 90% of the Mexican restaurants out there so no need to dial this one in. Portions were ample, food was hot, spices mellow with nothing really imaginative on the menu. Filled the craving for Mexican fare,... More

Palmdale is all strip malls and chains so my expectations were a bit low. This place worked well for a business dinner. The veggie fajitas were surprisingly filling, with a big variety of veggies and potatoes plus a cheese-stuffed chili relleno; huge portion. The salsa is excellent, authentic. Great corn tortillas, not dried out. Great service!

The food is ok.....the salsa is better! I think the restaurant is a little dirty and very dated. I think they need to invest in the decor at lease some! The food came out good, but not delicious. I'm not sure if I'll go back. It's just so ran down. Hard to focus on anything else.

I ordered food for a family gathering of about 30 and can't believe the amount of food we were given. What a great deal! Everyone loved the Carne Asada tacos. The service was fantastic. I will definitely consider ordering from here again.

The restaurant has been here a long time. The décor could use some sprucing up and the tables are too close (you feel like you are sitting at the table across from your listening in on their conversation) but the food is very good and service decent. Better than Taco Bell any day.

We are new to the area as I've said in some of my other reviews, (stationed at EAFB) So we are on the hunt for a Great Mexican restaurant. And I have to say, this place is really good! I love a good authentic Mexican restaurant, and one with great salsa. They offer two kinds of salsa, spicy and mild.... More

Tried this place while visiting from the Midwest and loved it. The two types of sauce they bring out are very good! Everything was homemade including the crispy taco shells. Enchiladas are fabulous! Will return next year!

Local hotel recommend this place and I'm glad they did. I got the fish taco and it was delicious. (Only thing it needed was lime which it came with, my family just forgot to bring me some from the restaurant, I stayed at the hotel when they we to eat.) They all enjoyed there meals as well.
