Just what we wanted

Just as we were giving up hope of having authentic Mexican in a town with a deceiving name, a local sommelier let us in on this little secret. It is very reasonably priced with lots of options. It has the mark of a fast-food restaurant or hometown pizzeria, but since authentic, it does take some... read more

Friends sat this is their favorite... We found it to be pretty average. Cheese enchilada & chile relleno were fine, kinda boring. Had higher expectations for some good Mexican food served by Mexicans. Note: they made it into Sunset magazine in 2000, for their tacos. Should've tried the tacos...

A pleasant surprise hidden on a side street. This is my second time visiting this restaurant and they do not disappoint. The food is wonderful and the portions do not disappoint. I just arrived from San Antonio where there are numerous Mexican restaurants (and also 1 million plus people) and this place is right up there for taste and variety.

We are regulars for the tacos(lots of meat) and the Sopes!!! Always great food, always fast, and always TO GO, Not a big fan of the interior of the resturaunt. Can't beat the food for the prices.

I love this place for their tacos! Their burritos look HUGE and maybe some day I'll try one of those. Plenty of seating and their prices aren't bad at all.

Thought we'd try this as an alternative in Paso. Restaurant had sufficient seating and close to the park. Food took a long time to come out (they seemed overwhelmed) but there were only 4 other people in the restaurant. Food was okay and had a good choice of meats for each item but wasn't memorable.

Great taco joint! Inexpensive and authentic Mexian food with the *must have* salsa bar. (I must have a lot of salsa with my Mexican food). Nice family owned place that the locals know.

Yes, this is one more completely average/mediocre SLO county Mexican restaurant with very little to recommend it. And, as a bonus, it's insanely busy around lunch time on work days - I gave up on a carry-out order after waiting 45 minutes and seeing my ticket in the same location above the grill as when I placed it. Don't bother.
