I don't think you can order something bad at this place. However, the crunch pork tacos with salsa verde were phenomenal. I also really enjoyed the tostado and rice/beans. Excellent food at a great price.

This place is a Santa Cruz tradition. It's been here over forty years. Loved their crispy tacos. Portions are large and the staff very friendly.

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.
