This a little restaurant catering to folks who like simple and tasty food. Considering the lack if competition in Cambria, they can afford to mark up prices. A similar Mexican joint in LA will cost you 40% less.

We stopped here for breakfast on a chilly Saturday morning and considered getting it to go, so we could sit in the car with the heat on. It was colder in the restaurant than it was outside! Other than that being a major distraction, the food was average, and the service not too friendly. My recommendation: keep looking.

Very good salsa not too hot. Chips are fresh! Several combinations of burritos to choose from and other dishes. Prices are reasonable. Located between East and West Cambria. Limited parking.

I love locally owned small eateries so I had high hopes for this place. There are four tables inside and some counter seating. Several counter seats also on front patio. The chips and salsa are very good. There were 3 on our party: one ordered nachos; two ordered ala carte tacos. It took 30 min to get our food. The... More

Stopped in for lunch on way to Hearst Castle. It's on Main Street and easily accessible from the highway. The young lady on duty was pleasant, prompt and solicitous. The food was just okay, not bad in anyway, just nothing special. Prices were fair and so was the food.

Quick drive from Hearst castle, this place had some great tacos al pastor, with some fresh and tasty salsa. My wife had the chimichanga which was huge but great.
