I've been to about a million Mexican places and this one is right up there. The food is awesome and the tacos are almost free. Really, two tacos is a very respectable meal here. I come here every time I am in town and it is the highlight of the trip. One day I was here for a medical visit... More

Absolutely excellent mexican food, from sauces to enchiladas, service ready and attentive, they provided us a new order almost immediately after our request, in order to let us eat all together. The place is definitely not a jacket and tie, but there is anyway enough room to have some privacy. Recommended for food (also take away) mainly.

I walked to this restaurant from Creekside Inn. The menu was quite varied, and the staff even made a special dietary adjustment for me when I requested it. Very delicious.

Went with co-workers for lunch, food came in a timely manner and was excellent. Nice salsa bar to choose from. Highly recommend this place.

We really like the enchiladas here and the prices are great, as is the hot sauce. The staff are also friendly. However, my digestive tract did not enjoy the experience quite as much. I thought it was just a fluke, so I went back about a year later, and experienced the sequel to Montezuma's revenge. I've never had this happen... More

I took my kids (ages 11, 9 and 5) there. We got 3 tacos ($1.35 each), 1 wet green burrito ($7.75) and two vegetarian burritos ($5.75 each). Way too much food. My burrito was quite filling. I usually eat my food and help with the kids. Not thus time. Nine year old finished his tacos, but the 11 and 5... More

My favourite Mexican restaurant outside of Mexico. The interior is cheap and nasty but the food is superb and a bargain. A must visit 9/10

Great food with a "locals" flair. While you order and sit at long tables with an open kitchen, the resulting food will please. Will certainly return.

Authentic Mexican, "hole-in-the wall" kind of comfort food. The outside is a pink adobe style building with large black letters, inside has a huge picture menu, a cooler with cokes & Jarritos in ice. I LOVE the overall ambiance! It's all about the food! Which is what it should be :) Perfect place to come after work to relax &... More
