Molcajetes Tolteca(lava bowl). I had the shrimp. Amazing! Arrives in a lava bowl that looks like a bubbling cauldron of deliciousness. You must try it!

Food was great! Service was terrible. We asked for chips and our server never came back for like a half hour, also without the chips. A totally different server brought out my daughter’s food and we had to wait 20 mins for another server to bring us ketchup. Basically our server was nonexistent and almost always forgot to bring us what we asked for. It took 2 hours to get through the meal due to the wait. Unfortunate, because the food really was good.

The food here is outstanding. The service is friendly, but meals here take a really long time. We were not in a hurry, so that wasn't a problem. We did outside dining, which unfortunately is only separated by a bamboo curtain from their garbage. The stench was just awful. We won't be back until that's fixed.

Our waitress was super sweet and attentive to our needs. The food, as always, was delicious! Their margarita mix was also super fresh and you could tell it was homemade with natural ingredients. 5 stars!!!

Service was great. So friendly. My chicken in my entree just didn’t taste right, almost like it was freezer burned and a bit chewy.

The food was fresh but had no flavor at all. A little seasoning would definitely help the taste.

We are always pleased with this restaurant- it was busy and perfect to celebrate a special occasion. We sat outside even though Open Table indicated it was “unavailable “.
The server had great suggestions and the food was fantastic!

We love this little Mexican jewel in Medford and will use any opportunity when in NJ to have dinner there. We particularly appreciate our waitress, Lorena, for her friendliness and great service each time we are there.

The service was slow but our waiter was super nice …
Food would have been enjoyable I am sure but with all of flys on the window by our table it was hard to be in the mood to eat.
The waiter closed the blind to hide them but it was too late…
We had already lost our appetite….
Hopefully they can get the window fixed and solve the fly problem…

Food is authentic and delicious. Great spot and BYOB. Service got a little slow towards the end as the restaurant got busier, but I understand we are still coming out of a pandemic and know that places are short staffed right now. Will definitely be back.

This was our second visit here and it had been a few years. Still just as good. They added a very nice outdoor seating area with Edison lights, heaters, and festive adornment. I had the carne asada, a very generous portion of each ingredient. My son had the same and we both enjoyed them. The empanada appetizer was excellent, fried crispy and hot. The sizzling cheese and tortilla appetizer was the hit of the meal. A gooey blend of cheeses was shared by four of us.

Service was excellent. We made an Open Table reservation just a half hour before and were graciously seated outdoors. Soon after, the place was packed. The outdoor seating was quiet as it was set back a ways from the road.

Great place for a treat, a date, and BYOB.

The starters, nachos and guacamole, were to die for, the entrées, and enchiladas - were ok , the vegetables fajitas had no sour cream or guacamole- but once we asked for it they were added
We had a reservation for 7 PM, and it took at least half an hour to get the starters, but that’s not a problem, as I’m happy that the restaurant had good traffic. Overall a great experience and really good starters,We will definitely try this restaurant again and order some different entrées
