Charming on the inside with a great location, run while you can. Nice people work here so this is tough to write but I must warn. The food has no flavor and the ingredients make institutional fare gourmet. Queso in my chile reallno was a substance similar to Velveeta, a memory from childhood that brings nausea even now. The sauce... More

Excellent service. We were seated right away and the waitress took our order as soon as we were ready. The food came out quickly (less than 10 minutes) and the order was exactly correct. The food was tasty and all three of us were satisfied (portions were large). Recommended to anyone wanting to get an affordable meal in downtown Grand... More

This is a great restaurant for Mexican food. I have been there a few times now, and found the service and food to be great both times. The margaritas are really good, too. The price for the food is reasonable for what you get.

We stopped for a snack and a beer and the chicken quesadilla was very good, one of the nicest I have tasted. Not cheap but it is city center and you can sit outside and enjoy a sunny day.

visited for lunch while at a conference. The service was good, but food average. When a chimichanga gets to you in less than 3 minutes after ordering, you know it was not "made to your order". The chimi was small (the size of a small fist) and without much seasoning. The cheese sauce was a commercially made liquid cheese like... More

Everything was ... fine. Service was average, wouldn't do a simple substitution of rice for tortillas. Food was average too, very cheap cuts of meat, although ample portions. Prices higher than you'd expect for the quality. Outdoor seating very nice to have. Margaritas were good, but not served in a margarita glass...?? Fruity version way too sweet.

Extensive menu and colorful atmosphere. We had a large group, and our server handled us quickly and efficiently. Our food was quite tasty and reasonably priced. Good choice in downtown Grand Rapids.
