Good flavor

We tried burritos, tacos, quesadillas and torta. All the ingredients were fine and food well prepared. Only bottled water though. Talkative not modest owner.

My family and I were staying in a hotel down the road and didn't want to go somewhere on the main drag (plus we had our dog). We sat on the patio outside; food was solid; chicken nachos for the win!. Staff was friendly.

Good Mexican food....just don't know why it is advertised as being in Tahoe City. Quick casual place to eat.

Grabbed super burritos here and they were HUGE - great value for the money! Can easily share one between two people. The burritos were authentic, but need some more flavor - fresh cilantro would do wonders inside the burrito but at least you can help yourself to homemade salsa on the side.

Walking around the area, we discovered this great find! Delicious food for reasonable prices! The torta bread of the sandwiches was perfectly grilled for each light, crispy bite. Took our order "to go", so we could enjoy the meal by our pool. Spent the waiting time, chatting with travelers from across the country:)

This place is hidden away from the main strip, but has excellent Mexican food at low low prices. I had the ahogada, a burring covered in a spicy sauce and it was delicious. Very very low prices and great value!

Great prices and great food. Dollar tacos--such a plus! Only thing is the place is kind of small! I ordered five tacos and was pretty stuffed. The marinated meat tacos are great. Hoping to go back and try out the Ahogada, a sandwich drenched in spicy sauce. Would recommend!
