    readers said this to be their favorite margarita. The recipe calls for a house-made mix blended with three types of tequila: Cuervo Especial, Cuervo 1800 and a secret platinum tequila. Read more

    For the brave ones that would like to go one step further than the hotter salsa, ask for the habanero salsa!

    What happened to the homemade flour tortillas. They were once big and fluffy now they are just a doilly :( but the cookies at the end are still good. Rachel what were you thinking?

    Try the Ensenada style fish tacos. Carne asada tacos supposedly have bacon in them but I could not detect any.

    Get the "skinny margarita" on the rocks. It is so delicious that you'd never guess that it has half the calories of their regular margarita.
