Still the best tortillas anywhere

I have been coming here for many many years. People are correct that it is not the same now that the kids took over. The tortillas are still the best around. The meats and tamales are very dry. The salsa and Pico are still very good. The Chorizo has changed over the years but it is still pretty... read more

best tamales ever, I ordered for Christmas, always have them and very good about never running out. I ask for it wet, this way mine is special, my husband and I order breakfast to go all the time, once we ordered on line and paid online then pick up was a breeze.

This is supposed to be a San Fernando icon. Maybe it was once but not anymore. Food is worse than mediocre - I got sick both times I ate there. Even waited a couple of months and went back because my family kept raving about it saying they grew up eating there. But the food was just bad, not even... More

Next generation has gotten too expensive while not paying attention to detail. Tamales dry and not enough meat and sauce. Lines are more for tradition than taste and value. Yes a tortilleria, but the restaurant that goes back to the '50's has lost it's attraction.
