On Highway 12 this place in Sonoma is new and I have been wanting to stop by and try it. Saw the Grand Opening sign for months and was enticed by the Tuesday taco and Margarita special. So, even though it was not a Tuesday, I and my sister decided to stop in.
The atmosphere is modern, new and clean. The decor is traditional, bright, festive and impressive. Yet the food is okay. I enjoyed the chorizo taco, delicious and full of flavor. Tacos and tamales are priced right.

But I thought the prices for other regular menu items a bit high for just decent food. Service was friendly and attentive. We arrived just in time for Happy Hour and I hoped drinks would be half price. No, only a dollar and half off of the $6.50 price for the house margarita. Reviews on Yelp are mixed.
What puzzles me is that for a locally owned restaurant, they have some serious competition and should bring their prices down or raise up the quality of food. Will have to go back some other time when I can get a better take on what the specialities of the place really are. When we stopped in at 3:30 in the afternoon, the restaurant was almost empty. Yet as our server explained, after lunch time the place is slow. I thought the full bar was impressive and would like to try their other mixed drink creations like the house mojito or the Pina Colada.
I do think going there during happy hour time from which is between 3 and 5 PM might be best price-wise, because as I say, I think the prices are a little high for simple traditional Mexican-American food. The best value on the menu is probably the tacos. Plenty of parking, see web site for details.
