One thing we've learned in all the years of running our restaurant is that no two guests are the same. We can customize the dining experience for  anyone who walks through our doors.

When Chef Tony opened the restaurant more than 57 years ago, his only goal was to give people the best Mexican food experience possible. Since 1963 he has worked to bring Ogden only the highest quality food and service.
