The food here is phenomenal!  They have tamales that are out of this world, especially the pumpkin tamales. The flan is also stupendous. It was the BEST Mexican food I have ever had in the U.S.

This restaurant is both my Wife's as well as my kid's favorite restaurant. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is very friendly. I go back and forth between my three favorites: The Talapia, The Skirt Steak and the Enchiladas with Mole. My wife has a thing for the Chili Rellenos and the kids think the chicken "nuggets" and desserts are out of this world. Aside from Walker Brothers for breakfast, this is the only restaurant that everyone agrees on.

LOVE Tamales.  Good food, good people and a good vibe.  The food is always great, as is the service.  The manager is a doll and will do just about anything to make sure everyone's having a great time.  If you're dining outside and get a chill, just ask for a blanket and they'll bring you one.  If you have a baby, he'll offer the pick of his kitchen so he can give your little one food he or she will enjoy… I recommend the chicken quesadilla, veggie burrito and steak fajitas.

Food was excellent. Priced well. The Carne de Casa was to die for. Our waiter was very attentive.

This is a great place with delicious food!  This place is really cute, small and quaint.  I had the tilapia, which came perfectly cooked with grilled veggies and a yummy spicy sauce on top.  My friend Laura had the steak tacos, which she said were really good (and she is my resident expert on steak tacos!).  The ingredients were all fresh.

The margaritas were really good too!
