Quaint Mexican low key restaurant in downtown Penn Yan. Great atmosphere. Attentive service. Great food. Margarita's are the bomb. "Mic drop".

This restaurant was recommended by one of the Wineries as one of the best places to go in Penn Yan. Small but very busy restaurant in a short street by Tops Market.

They are very nice but they don't know how to make authentic margaritas. I tasted a mix, and they were not consistently made...they varied in color when arrived. Food ok. Salsa was good, the chips were on the sweet side. Inexpensive, nice Mexican atmosphere. If...More
