I took my granddaughter here for some quick tacos. Great service. The woman behind the counter greeted us with a huge smile and was very engaging! We got a taco plate. Good street tacos. It's nothing fancy but the food is good and the staff happily welcomes you and that is worth something in itself :) I will be back.

Very cheap food, but need to order much to fill my belly :) Nice staff, but not so clean inside, would recommend to use tables in open air. They do not accept cards, but there is an ATM inside.

Friendly staff, family owned for decades this is a great little place for mexican food in Santa Cruz. Authentic mexican food and extremely good value for money. You simply go and order your food and you can take away or eat on the premises. Well worth a visit for some tex mex if you are in SC!

Good prices, nice staff. Very inexpensive. Burrito was huge and sharable. This place is walking distance from wharf and boardwalk. It serves beer and sodas.

A good size group of us were visiting the boardwalk and decided to grab a bite for lunch. We split up and I'm glad I came with this group! The restaurant might seem small but it still fits a good number of people inside and outside. The food was what you might expect from a Taco Bar, but the chips... More

The place is a hole in the wall. The kind you LIKE/LOVE! They have a great menu of tasty tacos, burritos, nachos, etc... Priced well. Very friendly. Cold beer that they will keep in the fridge while you finish your first. They close EARLY so get there before 8PM.

We were visiting Santa Cruz for the first time in forty years and stumbled upon this throw back to our college years of the best Mexican places ever! It did not disappoint and in fact we had to go back again the next day after taking the West Cliff Walk for more. The chili relleno reminded me of why I... More

This place was a great surprise. We were just looking for a local place to eat lunch, preferably Mexican, and stopped here. The food was excellent, inexpensive and we couldn't stop talking about how good it was. The menu is big enough to probably serve what you're looking for (if it's Mexican food) the prices can't be beat, and it... More

It was me and four kids ages 13-8, we stopped in on our way to the beach. We ordered bean burritos. They were delish and inexpensive. The kids want to go back before we leave. Staff was super friendly and they have a vegetarian section to their menu. Nice surprise!
