We have tried fish tacos all over the Santa Cruz area. The fish here is plentiful,grilled and flavorful. We took ours to go, along with lime and fresh salsa from the salsa bar. Very reasonable. Now we know where to get great fish tacos in our own backyard!

It's not bad and some really like it. Many types of salsa at their salsa bar is a nice touch. If you are in the neighborhood it is fine, but I wouldn't search it out.

This was my first time here and it was authentic and tasty. Nothing fancy, but great. I have a burrito and it was good. Nice condiment bar to add that extra something. Definitely going back. Perfect after a hike in the redwoods!

Decent little hole in the wall, but.... very average. Good for quick burrito. Terrible tamales and Chile rellenos. Carnitas okay. Chips okay, salsa so-so. It appears to be a knock off of Tacos Vallarta chain.

Great casual Mexican food spot. Nothing fancy, just good food. Great for kids and great for take out. Friendly atmosphere and always busy. A definite place for a delicious and reasonable meal.

Wondeful and huge burritos. A very nice selection of authentic Mexican cuisine. Try their enchiladas.

My hubby and I love this place. It is always fresh and fast. We usually get it to go as it is typically packed but we call it in and it is ready for pick up within minutes! We used to go to the Vallartas a lot but the quality really went down and "el gordo" (as we call it)... More

One of my favorite quick-bite Mexican tacorias.. Everything is good and reasonable. From the the classic burritos, to the large filled Tortas, yummy fish tacos, refreshing Salsa Fresco and you can get shrimps in anything, for extra. They also have fresh squeezed Orange and Carrot juice $3... OLE ! ..{It's hidden to the right of Aptos Natural Foods.}
