Authentic food!

Loved the homemade chips, flautas, and taquitos. The chicken taco was only chicken and was very saucy, but good. Service was slower than I expected, but the prices were right! Definitely worth a stop and we are picky about our Mexican food :)

Not only did they have authentic mexican food, the Coke was bottled in Mexico. Don't forget Taco Tuesday. We went to the one by Costco, but they have more than one location. Consistantly good food at very reasonable prices

If you want good Mexican inexpensively, then there is no other than this. This place is in a quiet shopping mall next to Auto Zone; might be hard to find. We found this place many years ago while driving down to San Diego from Los Angeles & had a munchie. Since then we have always gone back whenever we were... More

Sometimes this place is really good, other times not so much! I picked up taco's on a Tuesday night and the line was out the door...I only waited about 15 minutes but there were others waiting 30 minutes for 3 taco's..I LOVE the GUAC and the chips but sometimes the food is just okay.

Best Mexican food in Dana Point! I stop by here every chance I get and I'm never disappointed. I wish they'd open a location in San Diego.

Great breakfast place, very reasonably priced. Eat out doors near the parking lot. It's in a strip mall but friendly service, fast service, reasonably priced. Family recommended and we were pleased and satisfied. Not fancy but ambience.

The food here was authentic Mexican food. The portions are huge. We had fajitas and a burrito, they were both excellent! If I'm ever in the area again I will definitely come here again.

This place is a hole in the wall but worth looking for and experiencing their delicious tacos. (Tuesday is same delicious food at bargain prices.) Chips, salsa and guacamole are all excellent as well. This is pick up and take-out at its best. Great to take to the beach for a picnic, a quick lunch or dinner to go when... More
