We came here for dinner during our stay in Whistler an absolutely loved it. It opens at 12 midday and shuts at 9pm. When you go in, you order at the bar and take a seat. The food comes quickly and when it does, it's superb Mexican cuisine. The flavours are great, the portions are generous and you can add... More

The food is excellent and the staff have great recommendations. Although not pricey by Whistler standards, $3-3.60 for a small street taco is a bit pricey - lunch for two was about $35.00. Chicken burrito and beef brisket taco and fish tacos are highlights .

We had a warm welcome and the menu was explained to us cheerfully. We chose the street tacos to get a flavour of everything. We understood that you needed 3 or 4 to get a meal rather than a snack. I had the chicken, the fragrant pork and a veggie one - my sister had the three veggie ones. They... More

The tacos were great! We tried 4 different kinds, and weren't dissapointed with any of them. In fact we went back two days later. There's not much seating, so if you go during the heavy season plan to take out.

We stumbled upon this place randomly and so glad we did! The tacos we're fresh, phenomenal and reasonably priced too. I love the decor and atmosphere of the little restaurant- I couldn't help but feel like I was in Mexico! What topped the experience was the service with a fantastic, flamboyant Justina running the show. Will definitely recommend to friends... More

I'm new to Mexican food (and whistler) but was immediately drawn to the tasty aromas and happy vibe of this really modern little eaterie. I wasn't even planning on eating; I was just after a cool beer and some low-key time to work on a project. But I couldn't help myself; everywhere else is expensive but this place nails tasty...

Once you take your first bite of the delicious Rock Fish Taco you will become addicted to the flavour. All Tacos are so tasty here. Great flavours. Ingredients always fresh. The Takorean taco is another great choice. Burritos are also very good. Highly recommend this restaurant. Great staff and friendly service.

Good place for a cheap meal, all tacos are $3-$4 and there is a good selection Not my favorite food, but the group i was with loved it. I have definitely had better tacos but it was a good meal. Waitstaff were good as well

Stopped for dinner after traveling all afternoon to get to Whistler. Friend and I both ordered three tacos. Brisket was not to my liking. Pork belly was okay and the red rock fish was excellent. They were only two bites each so we had to go for dinner afterwards.
