    This place has become my go to spot for higher-end Mexican cuisine. Great fajitas and a very welcoming atmosphere. Feels like I'm dining in the dining room at one of my Latin family member's house.

    What I like most about this place is their meat. Best carne asada I've found in Keizer.

    Come for the fajitas. Stay for everything else.

    WOW!!!! After all the reviews I figured that whatever we ordered would at these be a reasonable meal.  Our meals had potential to be reasonable, what ruined them was the enchilada sauce which tasted like tomato sauce and paprika. Now being from Tucson, Arizona I seriously know Mexican food and since I have progressively moved north I have adjusted my expectations. But why anyone would think enchilada sauce made from tomato sauce would be acceptable is absolutely beyond me. This completely ruined the meal. So as new residents of Keizer and we were hopeful, but we will moving on to another place to try and find reasonable Mexican food. I suggest you do the same

    We stopped to get a bite to eat before heading to the State fair. We were greeted upon entering and quickly were given chips and salsa which was nice. I ended up with a taco salad and it was ok, but boy was it bland. Normally I like bland somewhat, but this had absolutely no flavor at all. Some guacamole would have helped or even some salsa on it!! Barely any cheese, which was ok, but would have helped with flavor. Shrimp was generous though. They provided hot sauce which I used and poured salsa from the chips on there. My main piece of advice on this was to give it something to add more flavor to it! Include guac and salsa at the very least for$9. It was better than other options on the area. The place was clean, and the lady was happy to give more chips and salsa when we asked.

    My husband and I really loved this place. The drinks were good. He food was really good. I ordered a mixed fajita. And I have to say it was the best fajita I have had in years. The tortillas were freshly made. The place was clean and the dining area was kept nice and cool. The waitresses and servers were extremely nice. We will be coming back here to eat and bringing our friends !!!!

    Small strip mall location, usually has the tv on which I don't like in restaurants, but to each his own. We have stop in about a dozen times in the last year. They have really good tacos and hot sauces. I've had a few dinner items not as good as the tacos. My sister said their margaritas are excellent. It's worth stopping by - especially if you want a good taco and margarita!
