I love little family owned and run restaurants because they are run with the heart. This adorable and authentic Mexican restaurant is run with heart. Fitchburg is undergoing a bit of a renaissance and attracting great new eateries like this. Very Zen decor of modern...More

Excellent food. The “usual” Mexican dishes that you expect to find, but put together with such creativity that I know they must have a hidden pantry full of “secret ingredients”. Fresh and delicious. Excellent friendly service. Prices and serving sizes are reasonable. BYOB.

It's not your typical mexi-usa fare and I like the hip mexi-gourmet menu. The place is run by a really young crew. In my 50's so I may not be a good judge of age, but I'd be surprised if the waitstaff was over 18....More

We were invited out by a friend who recommended this restaurant. We arrived early so it was still quiet. The waitress was friendly and helpful. She even had some photos of menu items on her phone which she shared with us. She explained the various...More
