We visit our daughter who lives in Simi and always come here. Not much to look at from the outside but everything else makes up for it. Really authentic cooking, so hard to find in California these days and some pretty unique dishes too .

The albondigas soup had a weak broth, few vegetables, and giant chunks of potatoes with the skin still attached. One of the worst tasting... More

I've tried several Mexican restaraunts in Simi Valley and this one is the best by far. It's small and right next to a Subway sandwich shop, but don't let that bother you. Once inside, you will be warmly greated, seated, and served chips & salsa. The margaritas are big and tasty. I always get fish or street tacos. The fish... More

Little hole in the wall place near Vons. Great value and food pretty good! My girlfriend and I come for their mango margarita which is huge and share! They make it with mango purée and it is WAY good! Their fish tacos are pretty good. Overall, good Mexican food for a great value!

We enjoyed our lunch here in Simi Valley. The service was fast and friendly, and the prices reasonable. Yummy horchata--not too sweet. Portions are large and the rice and beans especially good. Family of six (all grown ups) ate for $60, and that included everyone getting drinks. We would eat there again.
