    We love this place. I found it on Open Table a few years ago, and we come everytime we go to AC.. This is true Mexican food. It is always fresh and delicious. Last night, we were 4 people who could eat, lol. We had 4 cocktails, 2 appetizers, and 3 bowls of the best crab soup. 4 entrees, 4 desserts, and 3 cups of coffee for $200. We all left totally stuffed. You are not getting that in any of the hotels. It is not by the broadwalk, you do have to drive there. But there is always street parking right in front. Service can be a little slow, that doesn't bother me because everything is always so fresh. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Hostess is completely arrogant This is the second time she messes up an OpenTable reservation by saying she gave our table to someone else We will not come back. Again tonight after getting an OpenTable confirmation she says we don’t have a reservation. We pull up the reservation and she proceeded to say someone else says they had the same name and already came in All bogus Not professional and we will tell others what’s going on here

    We were seated promptly for our reservation time. Ordered drinks (margaritas, special watermelon margarita) ordered appetizers -chicken empanadas and queso, both very good. Entrees were brought out quickly (chimichangas, carne asada and I can't remember what everyone else had), they were good. Didn't love their guacamole but the refried beans were delightful . Dessert was excellent (fried ice cream and apple empanadas). No parking on site, street parking available using parking mobile app. Would definitely go back!

    This restaurant continues to be a solid favorite of ours. It is a family run operation and it shows. The food is always consistent and excellent. Not too spicy. The service and the drinks are always on target.  The outside of the building is very nondescript and the inside is cozy and casual.

    The place was clean with good atmosphere and the staff was pleasant but could have been more attentive-keeping water glasses full as example. Food was ok. Disappointed by guacamole, expected fresh with Avocado and tomato chunks and well seasoned but got paste from a container. My wife had fajitas which were bland with no char/caramelization on protein or vegetables. I will say the my meal, Caldo de Mariscos had a very favorable broth with good fish/seafood portions. Also, no mole meals on the menu which was disappointing. Overall, the experience was fair-expected more from an established authentic Mexican restaurant.

    All of the great reviews should most definitely be believed and the few negatives should be dismissed completely. We were a party of three; we had the Chicken Acapulco, Pollo Mexicana and Chicken Quesadillas. Each entre came with rice and refired beans and each was excellently prepared and quite flavorful. We shared a small plate of nachos that were just OK. Service was efficient, and we will return again.

    We have dined here for years and have never had a complaint. The restaurant is cozy, staff friendly and accommodating. The margaritas outstanding. The food is delicious, portions are large, you won’t go hungry. I recommend the bean soup, it’s a must.

    We’ve ordered take out from here often. It was my first time dining in and elected to sit at a table rather than at the bar. Very slow service for (2) with restaurant mostly empty upon arrival (table of 2 and 4) and more than 1 server on duty. Server was very nice but she was not attentive and seemed to wander around casually talking to other staff. It took almost 10 minutes before we even placed a drink order; thankfully we were served water by another member of staff a few minutes after arrival. A table of 8 were sat about 25 minutes later and received all of their food less than 10 minutes after we did. My husband and daughter dined in a few weeks prior with same server so he warned me after the drink debacle that she was really slow with them too. Food was delicious as always — we’ll just stick with sitting at the bar or takeout from now on.

    Looks are deceiving. You must find street parking. It doesn’t look like the best area of AC. The food was good. I can not complain there. The servers were very nice and kept the water filled even if the food was slow to come out. Prices were very reasonable.
