Mexican | Rochester, Rochester

Found this place just searching for good Mexican food and got that and more! Pretty empty when we got there at 5:30, but within 20 minutes it was hopping. The flank steak and fries the best I’ve had and my husband had the pulled pork enchilada that was equally good. Great place, great food definitely will be back! More

My husband and I were staying at the Marriott where the restaurant was located so we thought we’d try it. I was a little concerned at first because they weren’t very busy for a Friday night but we were both pleasantly surprised, the food was excellent as was the service. Would definitely eat there again when in town. More
