The food and ambience was delightful as usual. We went on a typical busy Friday night and enjoyed their delicious grilled pineapple and chili margaritas alongside their famous bean dip and salsa and chips. Before we knew it, our table was ready. I order the chimichanga, which is so unbelievable delicious with their juicy grilled chicken and homemade beans inside, fried perfectly and topped with their amazing house made guacamole, sour cream, and pico. It is seriously so delicious. Easily the best Mexican restaurant in Orange County and we're SO LUCKY to have it right in our community here in Rancho Santa Margarita. Oh, did I mention the unbeatable views from the outside patio of the lake? Simply the best meal in Orange County!

The food is wonderful here…truly a cut above! The Shrimp taquitos are sublime…we could eat a dozen of them. Service, food and atmosphere is great. We love coming here to eat and drink the great margaritas!

Short Rib Enchiladas

One of my favorite items on the menu!! I took 2 of my friends here last weekend for their first time and they both ordered the short rib enchiladas and were more than impressed with how delicious the dish was!
