The food was better than the average mexican place with good portion sizes. My husband loved the spicy salsa and my son really liked the cheese dip. If we lived in the area we would definitely be back.

There are several Mexican places in Collinsville, and this is my favorite. All of it is good, but my favorite is the carne asada. It reminds me of San Diego

We love this as our go to for Mexican. Ask for Jackie and you will get great service. I have tried several of the dinner menu items, most favorite is the vegetable with shrimp. Weather permitting the patio is very pleasant.

We had a nice lunch on their large and sheltered patio. Very warm for April Fools. Pollo Sinaloa and quesadilla were both well received. Service was good but not intrusive. Good salsa with a large basket of chips. Very reasonable pricing.
