Best Carnitas around!

The food is great and there's plenty of it! Your typical local hole in the wall joint that sells good food. We try to come every few months.

Drove by this place and decided to check reviews on it since we were craving authentic Mexican food. Had dinner. From the street it doesnt look all that great and even inside it looks a bit tired, but they serve authentic food and nice portions. We had the 1 taco combo plate with rice and beans and it was the... More

After leaving the Central Valley to live up here in the beautiful hills around Placerville, we have been searching for a nice Mexican restaurant to replace our beloved Sal's (see my review) in Selma, Ca. Although this mom and pop hole in the wall cannot replace Sal's, the food here makes it a top contender for #2. Fresh made food... More

I found this place when it was occupying only half of its current building. You'd have to wait for a table because there were only four, and half the town was eating here. It's always been run by the same family, and they do a great job. The service is friendly and the food is great! Their salsa is some... More

The salsa is homemade delicious! Simple atmosphere, but so reasonable in price. The chili rellanos are superb and the seafood chimichanga over the top delicious. Miquel, owner, is very friendly. The restaurant is very clean as well.

We started going to this little restaurant when the only dining area they had was outside on plastic tables where you had to hold on to your plate to keep it from sliding off into the parking lot. We met the owner and his family and enjoyed bringing friends and family to their little shop. Since then, we've seen them... More

Love this place, have been dining here since it was tiny hole in the wall. Best tacos al pastor ever. Chile Relleno burrito supreme is great. Recommend to anyone wanting Tijuana style food. Decor has never been best, overlook it and enjoy your meal!

Didn't really feel welcomed here. The counter help seemed like they were doing me a favor, not friendly. Nobody was there but the food took an awfully long time to make. I love salsa, but they had some kind of written restrictions over the salsa bar (only time I've ever seen that at a Mexican salsa bar). Food was so-so,... More
