Good Food, nice on the wallet

We travel on a budget. We like to go out for a nice meal, and fun outings, but then search for deals to off set the cost. After spending the whole day on the mountain paying a fortune the for some burgers, this was a great find. Fresh! We got street tacos: chicken, steak and beef. All DE-LISH... read more

Food did not taste like Mexican food. Bought asada tacos, burritos and nachos and none tasted like it was asada.

We just walked here from our hotel. Very convenient location. Food is pretty basic but they have a whole table full of salsas, etc. to spice up your food. Think they are cooking for people not used to Mexican food. Allowing the consumer to add the spice is a nice touch!

vegetarian taco salad, it was sloppy and runny. Iceberg lettuce was cut so thin it was limp. I did like the salsa bar and the prices are amazingly low. The people working there were polite and friendly, so I feel bad to not leave a great review but we won't eat there again.

Forget Jalisco's , I've tried all the other taquerias in south lake and this one is the best. When you factor in price , quality , and quantity, this hole in the wall taqueria is beats all the others hands down. Not a fancy restaurant at all. Tacos for $1, burritos for $5-6.

Lady taking our order was rude. Small eatery that locals probably frequent. We are there because yelp had 4.5 stars...that was a HUGE error. Food was very average Mexican food you could find at any roadside stand. Cook did his best but the food and service was poor

Found this hole-in-the-wall Mexican food joint. It's where the locals go. Excellent food, friendly service. Great find!
