Portions are too small. I will not return because I felt a bit cheated by the price and portion size. It is nice that the food wasn't greasy though like other Mexican restaurants.

On nice evenings the outdoor seating is very nice for drinks or even dinner. In a nice area of downtown.

The owners of this restaurant do a nice job at providing flavor without the grease. Really good guacamole. While visiting from Texas, this will definitely do when you need a Mexican food fix.

Definitely not great good. Small servings and lacking in flavor. The salsa was good, if you like hot salsa. The server appeared to also be the owner, and the manager. She was very nice but in over her head. I would not recommend.

I've been and tried here 3 times. I've tried a lot of different things (well, 4 different things anyway) -- granted always for lunch. But I gotta tell you, from my point of view -- this could be an awesome gem -- but they need...More

My family recently discovered this place and it is truly a gem. Everything about the place is inviting, the location, atmosphere, friendly staff, and most importantly, the food. We had a large party and several of us had the enchiladas, along with chimichangas and burritos....More

This is a fun spot in downtown Winston-Salem, but the menu needs to be spiced up a bit. Good presentation and yummy salsa. Also need to take the chili dog off the menu - that doesn't speak to a very authentic Latin feel. The margarita...More
