Corner joint does really good Mexican food

These folks have it down. The meat is always done to perfection and you can't beat the prices. Remember to tip them. A nice place to have in the neighborhood.

Sadly this restaurant is no longer in business having been replaced by "Avenue Cafe". Sorry to see it go but hopefully the new place can fill its shoes.

The food was Good, not excellent, but pretty good. I ordered a carne asada burrito, However if you have allergies and call to ask what ingredients are in a dish, the staff couldn't tell you, not only was I put on hold several times, but after 15 minutes nobody knew what kind of oil they used or what all was...

Only a few blocks from the ocean you can find solid real Mexican food without the fanfare or fuu fuu. The folks there know their food and you get good stuff - Carne Asada, Pollo Asado, Carnitas (my fave) and more. Even the peppers and carrots are authentic (and self serve!) The burritos are massive, but my favorite is the... More

The food was tasty, hot and prepared on the spot. Loved the chips and salsa that comes with it. Portions are huge for the burritos and tacos. Recommend the fish taco and the seafood burrito!

Basic American/Mexican smashed beans and rice fare. Shrimp Diablo was swimming in sauce - couldn't finish half my meal. Other meal was a fish taco which my dining partner enjoyed. NIce homemade salsa for chip dipping. Inexpensive, quick and funky.

This small and cozy Mexican restaurant has really good food. You order at the counter and they bring it to your table. I had the chicken enchiladas which were very tasty and my friend had the pork casadia. I will definitely eat here again soon.

We have tried several Mexican eateries around the Santa Cruz area. None have matched the flavor and service we have received at this restaurant. Everything we have tried has been delicious. The location is small and intimate. Parking is across the street in the city lot. Visit Taqueria Agave in Capitola and enjoy some wonderful authentic Mexican food and maybe... More
