Reminds me of Mom & Pop shops in Texas. Love it! – Being from Texas, I love mexican food. Now, living near Philly, I am suffering. BUT, no fear, we found this place in Delaware that allows us to get a taste and a feel of the restaurants back home (and, needless to say Margaritas, etc. are available!)! It's not fancy, but you'll enjoy some pretty authentic mexican food without the nickel and diming I've heard of at other places. I don't think there is anything that I haven't liked, but remember it's not gourmet and it's not meant to be. (As I read in a review somewhere on City Search, try Tequilas in DT Philly or Coyote Crossing for a more upscale experience, although I find C. C. to be too limited in their selection and they are very gourmet.)
The margaritas can be too sweet, as I have encountered in almost EVERY mexican eatery in the Delaware Valley, but we just order an extra shot and split it between our two margaritas. It's been a bit since I've been there, but I recall really enjoying the salsa. BTW, this is my first post to City Search, and now that I've signed up, I hope to be a regular contributor!!
Arriba!.....did I spell that right?
User review by rgmx13 – Great place to eat. Food is very reasonable especially the combination dinners. Parking is tight but if you get there early, you won't have a problem. It's a seat yourself restaraunt. For the best seats, get there before 6:00
