The best taco you'll ever have

Just a small place family owned and operated- the hard shell chicken taco is so good you won't believe it! They make their own shells and a special broth that goes with it. All their selections are excellent but tacos dorado outstanding.

I'm not really a great fan of Mexican food so I wasn't overly excited when serious foodie friends insisted on taking us here for brunch but this place is the real deal. I have no idea what they ordered but everything was delicious and the woman (one of the owners I believe) who served us was charming. It was a... More

Small place in a strip mall which we liked so much we went back three times. Good for breakfast lunch or dinner. The owner and family make you feel at home!

We missed our party so we ate at the first place we saw. We ordered the 3 chicken tacos and a Carne a sad a burrito . Both were extremely good. Only problem was the long wait. But worth it.

First time in here this place its small but nice and clean. Food is good. For a super wet carnitas burrito with no beans was weak. For $9.71 I received a what looked like a standard burrito. Now mind you no chips or drink just the burrito. For that price I was hoping for a heavy heavy super burrito the... More

Family owned, the food is " home cooked." I love the green chicken enchilada's. the homemade tortilla gives the right texture and taste.

Have been six times. Usually play golf at Desert a Dunes then head here for food. Small restaurant in strip mall, perhaps 10 tables. No ambiance, but prompt service and great food. Chips and salsa upon arrival no charge. Guacamole made to order. Soft tacos served with cilantro and onion with salsa bar for extras. Al pastor( marinated pork) excellent.... More

The salsa was excellent. This place is not very big, but the food is well prepared and tasty. And you even get salsa a chips while waiting for your order. That is sort of unusual in a taqueria and appreciated. The chips were warm and the salsa was some of the best ever. I had the shrimp tacos- they were... More

Found this place after reading a favorable article in the Desert Sun. I've been there several times since. The soft tacos are excellent, in particular, the Al Pastor, Chicken and Shrimp tacos. These are not steam table style but are made to order.The shrimp dishes are also very good. It's a small ten table place with friendly service.

You're not going for the ambience but for the food. Small and unassuming but friendly and prompt service. Dinner was very good. Absolutely the best guacamole I've ever eaten.
