I am a big fan of Mexican food, and am pretty picky! Love their food. I could eat here at least once a week and never get tired of it. I usually get the fajita salad..... very tasty! The staff is always very nice and offer great service.

This is my son's favorite restaurant. They are very accommodating for large groups and families. I recommend the Mexican Chalupa and the huckleberry lemonade, my favorites. My husband orders the Enchiladas Suiza almost every time. The other thing we like is the prices, which are reasonable. The food comes quickly too. This is our go-to spot when we're in a... More

When I have friends who like "typical" Mexican food, this is where I go. The food is fine, cooked and presented nicely, but nothing unusual. However, the service here is really excellent and their margueritas good.

First of all, i have to say that the chips and salsa were fantastic. the rest of the meal was pretty good, but the salsas were really impressive. Now then, the waitress: she seemed to be fairly inconvenienced by our visit, and even came across as a little snappy.. I'm not high and mighty by any means, but i don't... More

No competition to this, the BEST mexican restaurant in town. This is a standard stop for our family as we hit Sandpoint throughout the summer as well as winter. Seems like a family run place but I'm not sure. In any case, the service is good, fast and the food excellent. If you want mexican food while in town this... More

Authentic Mexican food. Poor beer selection. Reasonably priced. Street parking is a challenge. There is a public parking lot about 2 short blocks away.

I've eaten here a handful of times... Never have had a problem with the staff and we enjoy eating outside but the food isn't very consistent. What's good varies one visit to the next. For example, my mom and I both ordered the huckleberry lemonade. Hers was delicious, mine tasted completely watered down. She has commented on the difference in... More

The interior is kinda campy fun. A random waterfall, a big fish tank with a 15 year old blood parrot, and fun lighting. Servers are very nice and they provide both a hot and mild salsa upon sitting. My Carne Asada was tasty. Nothing exciting. But I would return.
