We found this place by accident because we needed something quick and somewhat healthy. When we entered, we almost left because of dirty tables and teenagers chatting behind the counter, but the smell of the kitchen kept us there. I had fish tacos, my sister had flautas, and my mother had the tilapia(which is only served on fridays but they... More

The Carne Asada Tacos never ever disappoint. Perfect portion. Always hot and fresh. Several salsa choices made fresh daily.

I liked the food here, especially the fish tacos but I got tired of the owner's stinginess regarding the salsa! They have several kinds of salsa, all good, and customers shouldn't have to beg for an extra little cup to be able to sample them all. I used to eat here 2 or 3 times a week but it got... More

On a 1-10 scale- C+. It's OK, but not Mexican all the way. Pretty sure refried beans are out of a can. Food served more as a product, instead of something to brag about. Never saw one smile on any staff. Clean, bathroom was clean also. Salza bar was empty. Will go there again but not for any particular reason.... More

It's like a taco truck only it's stationary. I love their tortas! Limited but very, very good burritos and other Mexican staples for the hard working Tehachapi laborers.

Good quality food and friendly servers. Could use more comfortable booths, but it's worth going there for some great taco's. Very clean.
