Yummy Mexican Fare

Fresh ingredients prepared with care. Fish tacos and other daily specials set this place apart. Great murals on the walls. Excellent value.

What a crazy, noisy, charming family run restaurant full of friendly smiles and patient explanations of some menu items. Before the menu is even given to you, a free basket of corn chips with spicy salsa is offered. Once the food arrives, you realize you are never going to finish your plate, but that isn't a problem because the staff... More

Truly authentic Mexican food. Our family ordered soft tacos (street taco style), crispy tacos, and a burrito. All items were excellent. The kitchen is completely visible, so all the ingredients were within view. Everything, including the chips, was freshly made to order. Onions, cilantro, tomatoes looked beautiful and totally fresh. Soft tacos were perfect, but they are small ‘street’ style... More

Ft. Bragg really needs some mid-range restaurants. Everything is either expensive or closes at 2pm. Los Gallitos is a typical Mexican restaurant. You sit at a table and order from a menu. The food was decent and a good value. The poor waitress was swamped and did the best she could. ot very hungry, I ordered the chile relleno a... More

I stopped by on a Saturday evening to confirm all the rave reviews. There was no table available and restaurant was very hot/humid and not conducive to comfortable dining. We elected to order take out. It took 30 min to get our food which was 3 items. Non meat nachos were deep fried chips covered with some salsa, watery retried... More

We pulled up to the restaurant and my husband turned to me and said, "Um, I don't think so". The restaurant is in an old strip mall and the restaurant exterior looked a bit tired. I told him no, the reviews say this place is really good. Besides the hamburger joint we had driven by had a line out the... More

This is a small, busy cafe. It's not fancy, but the food is quite good. Many locals eat here regularly. My favorite meal is fish tacos.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the front desk staff at our hotel. It is a really small little hole in the wall place with authentic Mexican food. It took us a few minutes to get a table but when we sat down our server was very friendly and helpful. The fish and chicken tacos were great. Everything seemed... More

We had a very good meal here. The menu is pretty extensive. Seating is limited. They do have a limited selection of beer available as well. Note that it sits back from the street and the signage is not all that great.
