My steak taco was good, however the chicken taco was not. The chicken was dry and appeared to be leftover from the previous day and had no flavor whatsoever. I was very disappointed. The resort staff gave glowing reviews of this place.

Small, spartan location, but you are there to eat and the deliciousness of the food soon makes you ignore anything else around you. The variety of the food is good and there are multiple combinations of tacos, enchiladas, etcetera. A great place to have any meal of the day starting with breakfast. You order your food first, then take a... More

I have not found this restaurant to be open. Have driven by and seen cars in parking lot no evidence of recipe being open. Tried calling and phone rang with no answer.

It's quite true that the ambiance is somewhat lacking; that being, said the food was great and the prices were good. The building appears to be an old converted convenience store with the front windows walled in. Inside is a little Spanish market on one side and a dining room on the other side with school cafeteria seating. You place... More

When I first walked into the restaurant, I was a little hesitant because of the lackluster appearance, but don't be fooled, the food is amazing! The meat was perfectly seasoned and the soup was so flavorful. Even my picky fiance enjoyed the food. We liked it so much, we went back again before our vacation ended. Give it a try!

At first sight it doesn't seem much. A grocer & walk up deli style establishment. However the servers are warm and the food is amazing! Truly amazing. Our family of 6 ate for 32$ and we are stuffed.

A local in the area had recommended this place; however, he failed to tell us that it wasn't a restaurant. It is more of a local Mexican store that offers food and has a few tables and chairs to eat it. First off, the menu is extremely limited and all in Spanish. The food itself was not that great. My...

This is not the best "restaurant" experience...but their chicken tostadas and enchiladas verdes are devine. It's a great carry-out type of restaurant.
