I should give it another chance . . .

My wife, son, and I used to go here on a regular basis, especially on taco Tuesdays. The $1.00 tacos along with the chips and salsa bar made it a good value. Between the three of us, we usually spent $18-$20 ordering tacos only. I usually order carnitas (whether in a taco or in a burrito... read more

I always go for the carnitas burrito - ask them to grill the meat extra crisp. While waiting i have a bowl of the pickled carrots. They also have pickled potatoes. But the carrots are best. There is nothing fancy about this place. Its a mix of anglos and mexicans at the counter. Just good mexican food.

The Mexicans eat here. This small and hidden restaurant will surprise you with the quality of its Mexican food. No luxury, no alcohol for the moment but very Mexican . Tortillas,tacos and tostadas prepared as you like.
