Service was just ok. However, if you want good mexican food in Madras, this is the place to go. It is a little spendy, so just be aware.

Came here on the recommendation of a friend to try the chile relleno. Wow! What a presentation. And it tastes as good as it looks. This is a vegetarian masterpiece that allows you to actually taste the ingredients, not something buried in cheese and egg...More

I’m always hesitant to try Mexican food for fear of disappointment. This place is exceptional. Service was a bit stretched but friendly and attentive. The menu has originals. Everything we were served was good or terrific.

Description
New restaurant in little Madras serving fresh, gourmet Mexican and tantalizing margaritas. The food is unusual, beautifully presented and the owner is a gem. Cost is very reasonable. Meals are quite large (enough for 2).
