One thing we've learned in all the years of running our restaurant is that no two guests are the same. We can customize the dining experience for  anyone who walks through our doors.

Even the couple's daughter Emily, who is now in high school, remembers staying late to decorate the restaurant with shiny sugar skulls, glistening star lights, and every ceramic turtle she could find, when she was just in the second grade. And to this day, the family still loves adding new decor coming straight from local artists, and full of love straight from Mexico.

We have the best food around and an atmosphere to match. Our recipes are authentic and time-tested. The ingredients are always fresh. The result is a menu that bursts with flavor and a certain je ne sais quoi.(oh wait, wrong language). 


All our employees--bussers and chefs, hostesses and sauciers--is driven by an all-consuming passion to create delicious food and extend impeccable service. If you have what it takes, let's discuss employment opportunities. Get a feel for the restaurant grind, and get ready to feel like a member of one big family, bonding over rush hour, jokes from our bartender, and lots, of chips.
