I was invited by a friend to meet here. I liked the facade of the restaurant and cactus decor as I drove in. No problem with car parking here. Atmosphere was relax. I particulary loved the Guacamole which was divine. Servings were huge. Staff were polite. Service was efficient.
Beautiful little bar and resturant, it was my first experience of Mexican food and it wasn't really for me but my friends loved the food, they stayed open later for our group just so we were not rushed and could keep chatting. They gave us hats to wear and took photos for us.
And on a Friday night they have live salsa music band playing and a dance floor to bust out your latin moves.
It's no longer the only Mexican restaurant in town, but SO worth a visit. The service is so friendly and fun, the food is really yummy with HUGE portions and really fresh flavours. I totally recommend the chicken burrito. Plus Alvarados have great specials, so it's not too hard on your wallet.
