    The food is about average for the better Mexican restaurants in our area. The atmosphere is good and the service excellent. We will get back there and try other dishes.

  5. Darliss Bardwell

    We had excellent food and they were diligent in helping me avoid things I’m allergic to. My husband had a huge burrito Mexicano. I had a tostada and we were both stuffed when we were done. We ordered chicken fajitas to take for breakfast. The restaurant is in Medical Lake, only 12 min. away from the Super 8 near the airport. The servers were friendly and kept us well supplied with chips, salsa, and cabbage salad.

    I have never had a Mexican meal so homemade and just to die for. They were so wonderful to my bff who had a dog and had brain cancer that I actually cried for how respectful they were.

  19. Michael Silva

    Amazing food and friendly staff. Definitely coming back!

  24. Jennifer Quillin

    Loved the texture and a bit of heat in the salsa. They also served an interesting cabbage mixture with the chips. I’ve never seen that before, but it tasted really good. I ordered a shredded beef taco that was loaded with flavorful meat. I would get that again for sure. Could have used a little more cheese. The service was outstanding! Love small town, local restaurants that still care about their food and their customers. It was a treat. Edit update 6.24.23: Had the best rice and beans ever! Their salsa is still my favorite. The spinach & mushroom enchilada was delicious! We’re from AZ (visiting family here in WA) and this beats most Mexican food restaurants in Phoenix!

  25. Roxanne Kestle

    The food was great and the portions are huge. The service was amazing and we can’t wait to go back

  26. Thomas Kestle

  29. Janette L

    Great food and friendly! We love their fajitas and enchiladas.

  30. Amanda Vandenberg

    It’s a hole in the wall restaurant with good Mexican food and great service. Portions are very generous and food was out to the table fast. We ordered the carne asada meal and the chicken quesadilla as well as drinks, I highly recommend both dishes – they do not skimp on the meat or sides here, worth stopping by for lunch if you’re in the area

  31. Cheyenne Hash

    Love this place! Very good Mexican food and supporting a local family business. A go to for my family.
