    Great buffet breakfast. Very attentive service except for when I asked a server for chips and salsa, she said no, not during brunch. The table behind us asked a different server, and she gladly brought them chips and salsa. So we asked her, and she brought them out with no issue. Not sure what that was all about but all and all a great experience.

    We went for brunch. So many dishes to choose from. My favorites are the made to order omelets and tacos. The tortillas are handmade in front of you, there are 4 different kinds of meat to choose from and they have a nice selection of toppings. Mimosas were included and they kept coming over for refills. It was chilly when we went but we chose to sit outside and the heater worked great. We will go back.

    They had no idea that we had a reservation but managed to get us a table quickly. Every one was very nice, but service was slow. For example there was 8 of us, the bartender brought us our bar drinks out one at a time, rather than the server bringing them out all at once. Took longer than normal to order, and the normal flow of service was lagging. But again everyone was very friendly, just thrown off by the pace and the fact they weren’t aware of our reservation.

    The service and quality of the food were exceptional! I loved the pumpkin martini and the mole enchiladas I had. My four other friends loved their choices of food and drinks as well. Our waiter was very helpful, courteous, and hospitable. We had a great experience, considering we were very skeptical about trying a new Mexican food place!

    We came here for the Thanksgiving Day buffet, after previously doing a Sunday Brunch here. The weather was nice, and they have a nice outdoor patio. We really liked the Sunday Brunch, and on Thanksgiving Day they had the usual turkey and stuffing, but also retained some of their Mexican specialties, which we appreciated. Great service from Cielo, and Yadira. Our champagne, and water glasses were never empty. One more instance of great service. We just happened to mention that we missed the churros from the regular Sunday Brunch on the Thanksgiving spread. No problem our serves said. We'll make you some. About 15 minutes later they presented a plate full of warm churros, and ice cream. They really pay attention here, and are really looking to make your visit a great experience.

    This is her third time here.  The waiters and waitresses are super friendly and remembered us. They always check in to make sure you’re OK and they have a wonderful all you can eat buffet with mimosas included. The ambience is lively and fun! It’s an a beautiful part of downtown Claremont. Definitely a must go!

    Our adult daughter and I went on a Friday evening and enjoyed the live music playing next to their outdoor patio; city function. My chicken enchiladas were yummy, great beans, but I prefer more tomato sauce and seasoning in my rice. Our daughter had the birria tacos and the she said the dipping sauce was too thick and had a really intense flavor she didn’t care for. Although she wouldn’t order it again, she has been here before and really loves their dishes. Our mixed drinks were delicious! She had a michelada and I had a watermelon margarita. I enjoyed the festive environment and good service. We both will come back!

    I love this place but the service is terrible. Not enough servers. The servers are great but there needs to be more to deal with the crowd. I usually go for brunch and there is never enough servers to deal with the crowd. The food is authentic Mexican food that is excellent. However, this last time the air conditioning was not working and we had to wait forever to have them provide the check, take our cards and return to cards to the table. Not a place to go if in a hurry.

    Really good food, must be a chef run restaurant as quality and flavor was great. Excellent salsa. Decent margaritas that are not too sweet, fresh lime flavor. Service was off, or we were avoided a lot. We tried to engage staff to be a bit more personable, but they were not interested, and it wasn't busy. Will definitely be back though.

    We had a party of 13 which was easily accommodated at the last minute! I was able to book online for the large group. Shortly after the lovely hostess called to verify our head count and ask if we wanted i door or outdoor dining. I suggested she choose to best accommodate the servers and she did. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and handled all of us well. There were a few hiccups with the wrong food and we don’t know if it was the waiter or the kitchen so I gave a 4 on service. The noise level made it hard to hear each other, but all in all it was a great experience!

    Got to eat at Casa Maquey last night. There was live music in the court yard. The restaurant ambiance was perfect. We had the salmon and chicken quesadilla, which were both amazing. Our service was really good, friendly, and a place you can tell appreciates your business. Set in the cute college town of Claremont, will definitely eat there again!

    Overall great experience ! Food was great , nice selection of dishes and options for all kinds of patrons . Patio area was shaded and there was live music. Service was good , I did have to ask them to adjust the check because we were charged for all adults even though we had one child with us . And gratuity (20%) was automatically added which I thought was odd for a group of 5 , but maybe it was somewhere in the fine print.
