Nice atmosphere, music. Chips and salsa delicious...but... Dinner was extremely disappointing... Echaladas were covered in Parmesan cheese..(REALLY?) not a hint of cumin or any Mexican flavors at all. In fact Italian was more the taste. Cannot recommend at all.

Authentic food, beautiful artwork and super yum strawberry daq. I ordered the enchilada trio w shredded chicken. (Very good) chips were warm and salsa had a good kick. Beautiful hostess. Very pleased with experience. The only thing missing was horchata ;) I will return.

So the food was great, but it was $17.00 for 1 chilli Relleno and a plate full of refried beans. Like REALLY!!! They did give us some great chips and salsa. The place was usually empty every time we went by. Our hotel said it...More

What you expect from a Mexican restaurant. Not a great value but in a tourist area where prices are high, its an option.

Very busy in Lincoln on a leaf peeping Saturday in mid October. Chose this place based on accessibility, rather than recommendation, and we had a very good meal Staff were busy and helpful, did not rush customers through but were quietly efficient. We will never...More
