East Norwalk is blessed with a number of very good, authentic and inexpensive Mexican restaurants, this among the newest. Nothing fancy inside, but an extensive menu of the usual fare at very cheap prices. The salsa they bring with chips is incredibly hot as are a number of the dishes. Maybe too hot. The tacos were a bit dry but... More

We very much liked the authentic style mexican food, and the margaritas were very good. But the service was extremely slow. There were 6 in our group. The drinks came 2 at a time, spread out by about 20 minutes. We all had frozen margaritas. It seemed there were only 2 people working that night.

We decided to stop by on a Sunday afternoon after church. This place won't win any awards for ambiance if you are looking for a fine dining establishment - dated with banners and signage from beer companies. What you do get though is great food. Don't come here if you are expecting taco bell - do come if you want... More

My husband and I ate there last night and had a really great meal for the price. We shared a rice with mixed seafood, a shrimp taco, a sope and a quesadilla plus 2 drinks for $35. Everything was really fresh and tasty. The salsas (all four of them they gave us) were really great. If you are looking for... More

We were thinking about Mexican food for lunch and based on the reviews we saw, we decided to give this lace a try. 46 seats and not much in the way of atmosphere but the food...outstanding! You start off with a variety (4) of salsas, all fresh and with different levels of heat. My wife had tacos-one beef and one... More

Total gem. Full of Mexican families. Beautifully and freshly made LOCAL food. Embarrassingly cheap. I go there every 10-14 days. Start with the drinks menu...order a Casuela if you dare (a huge terracotta bowl....yes bowl...of 3 spirits, fruit and naranja). Or a Cantarito (similar but smaller). Or Horchata for the non-drinkers. Or for the adventurous beer drinkers order Micheladas (just... More

For a small place off the beaten path, you will be thrilled. I have been here several times and always loved the food!
