Just happened to search this place and stop while driving thru. It was by far one of the better Mexican restaurants I’ve been to. Nice smaller menu with great ingredients! Wish we lived closer this would be a regular for us.

I've been to this restaurant many times, most recently twice this summer. It's reliably good, with vibrant food and great margarita drinks. I like to sit outside if possible, as the bar can get noisy. The food is varied and healthier than at many Mexican...More

I'm not a chef, but I've worked in restaurants. In my experience, restaurants like to protect their work product, including recipes. I'm sure you can find a good recipe online. Good luck!

Modern Mexican featuring both traditional and innovative Fresh, made on premise food (even the chips and salsas). Grilled seafood and fajita steaks plus shrimp stuffed jalapenos are specialties. Burritos are filled with flavorful ingredients. A good selection of both Vegetarian and Vegan items available plus gluten free options. Over 30 years of serving great food and margaritas. We are small, friendly and delicious. Outdoor bluestone awning covered flower filled patio is seasonal and dog friendly.
