My wife and I had dinner here on a Sunday evening. My chicken burrito was ok...about the best I can say for it. The rice and beans were averag.. nothing special. My wife had a marinated steak quesadilla. She found it bland, with very boring cheese. She asked for lettuce and tomato on it -- but it came out without... More

We chose to eat near the bar, so we could watch Sunday football. The bartender doubled as our server and she did a great job: she was friendly, efficient, and took care of drink refills right away. She started us off with complimentary chips and two kinds of salsa (red and green). We both had the seafood enchiladas and substituted... More

The menu wasn't much. I had the short rib enchilada's which were ok...kinda of salty. My husband had the fajita's which he... More

Servers are always good. Relaxed atmosphere, food is typical Mexican fare. We come as a family to eat and also my husband and I will come on a Saturday night and sit at the bar. The servers are good the bartenders are also friendly. Live music is played on Saturday nights near the bar area. It gets loud at times... More

I enjoyed my first visit here. We wanted to eat at Moore's next door but half hour wait on a Tuesday at 7pm. Went next door to Escondido and a great choice was made. Sat in the bar and saw some great baseball, prompt service and waitress was the bartender. All food was delicious, appetizer cheese dip, very large burrito... More

I brought a family member here for lunch who loves Mexican food, but rarely has it. What a mistake, I should have kept driving over to Chipotle. Their food is much better. Both of our orders tasted odd, not fresh, and the salsa was watery and tasted strange. We asked the waiter to exchange it for guacomale, but he mentioned... More

Went here with a group of friends, the waitress was pleasant and for the most part the food and service was good. It was very noise in the restaurant but other than that it was good. The prices weren't bad either

I had dinner here with a pretty big group. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't really great either. In a pinch, it will do. The service was pretty good, as were the chips and salsa.

Our food was very good. I had the grilled mahi-mahi taco. Excellent! There are two sides to this restaurant and we were there for late lunch about 2PM. There were only 2 servers working and one was also the bartender and they both also bussed the tables. The two gals did an excellent job.

Thank Billy R
