An often overlooked Mexican joint

This is a little hole in the wall, but offers pretty good Mexican. The flavors are good, the portions are good and the staff are friendly. I wont rave about it, but I wont do them dis service either. It is good Mexican food, but not great Mexican food.

I go here often because the food is pretty good and it's definitely the best Mexican in Abbotsford. But the owner NEEDS to hire more staff, it's always the same poor woman in there when I go who's scrambling to take orders, package take out, waiting tables, answering the phone and processing payment! Because of this the service is slower... More

Walked in at 5pm, the restaurant was completely empty. Was sat by the indifferent waitress and waited 20 minutes for drinks and to order our food. My burritos tasted off, so I sent them back along with my partners order because the vegetables on her fajitas were soggy and burnt. Needless to say, we left without paying and will not... More

We don't come here when we need fast service, but the food is authentic, fresh and tasty. There's always a table free in this colourful and clean restaurant, and we've never been disappointed in the food over dozens of visits. Bring a jacket in case you're near the door.

We used to love coming here but the food quality has changed drastically. No longer is it authentic & fresh. Everything seems low quality & microwaved.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants but not any longer. When we walked in it smelled more like an Indian restaurant than Mexican, but thought we'd try it anyway. The service was slow and inattentive. I ordered enchiladas and when they arrived they were tiny, the sauce was minimal and dried up, and they seemed like they... More

My husband and I have eaten a few lunches here and found the service very nice and fast. When we walked into the restaurant the first time, it was filled with Mexicans who were eating lunch. We both looked at each other, smiled and looked for a table. We had a delicious authentic lunch that was great and we left... More

I was so turned off i wanted to leave. The waitress came and we asked if they had any good kid friendly... More
