This was a friendly and authentic Mexican restaurant set back from the main road in a shopette and it didn't disappoint our group. It's small but handled our group of 7 since it was a slower time. You order, pay, and then grab your own seat. We had garlic shrimp with veggies, and a few different kinds of burritos. Their... More

This is the best taqueria in Tahoe. The food is delicious and I've never had a bad meal here. There is not really wait-staff, but the register staff is always friendly and helpful. It is also great for takeout. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but definitely worth exploring. The prices are completely reasonable and I love the... More

We have been coming here for years. Great doing place after a day of skiing in the winter or any time. Great value plus the bonus of great food. Family of 4 can easily eat here without breaking the bank.

After walking around town we ended up wanting Mexican food so I go to trip advisor to see which one to pick. This had the best ratings so off we went . If you drove by you would not stop but we did and so glad we did. We had chili verde burrito wet and the best ever chili relleno... More

Unbelievably fast and attentive service here!!! Far better quality food than what you'd expect for an in-n-out Mexican joint. The fish tacos were amazing!

We had lunch here. I ordered the fish tacos and was not impressed. My husband had the enchilada and said it was ok. Our business associate had the burrito and liked it. We also got an order of carnitas tacos to share. We all thought the carnitas tacos were the best thing we had. No salsa bar. Salsa is served... More

We stopped here based on the other good recommendations on Trip Advisor. The food seems to be authentic (definitely better than franchise), but we were surprised they offered no salsas and picante was a side dish. Also, black beans are not available. If you want to spice it up, you will either need to order the picante, or use one... More

All dishes were delicious, but the Armadillo Bowl was fantastic! If you like spicy this is a must try. You will not regret it! It is a bowl full of flavor. Will have it again and again. Only downside is large parties could be difficult during busy tourist months.

My family and I LOVE this place. I would love to give you recommendations for which dish you would like if you wanted pork or chicken or beef, but I really can't because I am unable to order anything other than the Armadillo... Not even sure that is the name, but it is the dish served in the dish made... More

We found this little place in the middle of the Donner Center strip mall just before you get to the cancer hospital. We never would have found it without our GPS. It is a tiny store font in the corner of the L between two lines of stores. You order at the counter and sit down at one of the... More
