    review rating 5  For nearly two years I have driven past here. Was feeling in the mood for mexican cuisine. Figured I'd try this place out. Parking appeared to be tight. Luckily, someone was leaving as I got there. Immediately after entering, I was greeted and seated. No wait time. Got the menu, had just the right amount of time to glance at the drinks - the Cadillac Margarita is AMAZING. But I think it may be a pre-mix(?). Few minutes go by,I'm ready to order. I was a burrito but I want to change it. The waitress suggested a different burrito and switch the meat. It was an excellent suggestion. Showed that she really knew what she was talking about. The burrito was extremely tasty. Strongly recommend this place. 20/10

    review rating 5  Best Mexican restaurant I've been to. Professional, great food, amazing staff. Go here.

    thumb Moraelin Schlenker
  • review rating 4  Service was good. Prices were reasonable. They give you more than enough food, that you'll be asking for a take home box. The best however was the drinks. I had a shrimp michelada and my girlfriend had their Cadillac margarita. Wish the food was as tast as the drinks. Not to say this isn't quality, but one is significantly better than the other. Would return.

    thumb Luis Lopez

    review rating 5  The tostadas de ceviche were perfect! The patron margarita was delicious and service was excellent. Wish their flour tortillas were homemade though.

    thumb Kayla Castro

    review rating 5  Food and service was fantastic. They even are able to make most of the dishes Vegan, which was wonderful for my niece and her boyfriend 🙂

  • review rating 5  Love this place, it's the best for the booze (the margarita's are the way to go!) Get the Chili Verde - flipping amazing!

    thumb Janie Cowart

    review rating 5  Some of the best Mexican food and Margaritas from Kent to Seattle. Great service and great prices! This is one of my favorite restaurants!

    thumb Jason Walker

    review rating 5  One of my favorite Mexican restaurants. The seafood is especially good. Crab enchiladas made with real Dungeness crab meat. BlackBerry margaritas my favorite a little different and not too sweet. Wait staff are conscientious and friendly but don't rush you. Busy on Saturday night but worth the wait.

    thumb Martha Hart
