  • The jalapeno white queso is amazing!!
  • White cheese sauce is delicious! Mole enchiladas are also really good. They have a good selection of flavored margaritas & mojitos.
  • The white cheese dip was delish! The chile relleno was good too. Rice and refried beans needs more work.
  • Fabulous service from Cassie and all the staff. Great food. Glad we found it.
  • Camarones Jalisco are amazing!!! Who could ask for more shrimp with cheese wrapped in bacon in white sauce yum
  • The jalapeo blanco queso dip that they serve with the chips is AMAZEBALLS!!!! I am licking the ramekin!!!!
  • The carnitas were well-seasoned. The rice and beans needed some work though.
  • Enchiladas suizas are very good. DO NOT order the Miguel's ice tea unless you like the taste of watered down cough syrup.
  • Beautiful restaurant, good service, and the food is pretty average. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again.
  • Great Bean & Corn Enchilada
  • Attentive service and plenty of menu options to satisfy all. Pretty big kids menu too.
  • Great place in Carlsbad! Bottomless mimosas!
  • Great food and service
  • Like many have mentioned, the queso blanco dip with the free chips is great, but after that the rest is just kinda meh. Not bad, but for southern CA not up to what you expect for Mexican food.
  • Their queso dip is the bomb! Love their fish tacos too.
  • The food was excellent and the wait staff quite friendly.
  • This is one of my favorite restaurants
  • I went here with my family after a long day at Legoland. We loved the chips & queso, pia coladas, and great authentic food. We will gladly return.
  • Tostada Grande with beef
  • Enchilladas Pueblo Mole
