very good unpretentious Mexican food

This is a hole in the wall type joint in a strip small at the south end of Wallingford. The menu is simple, the food is delicious, and the prices are great. I often take my young children on the weekends for tacos and quesadillas. The salsas on the table are great as well.

Really delicious food. Authentic, fresh, and some of the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. Inexpensive too. Served chips with four different sauces.

The Quesadilla was hot, the cheese melted and the steak was tender. The service was fast too. I will be back soon. The prices are not posted so I am not sure how much all of the various items are.

I was staying overnight on a Sunday night in Wallingford, and was going to go to the BBQ restaurant across the street. Thank goodness it was closed otherwise I would have never fount this gem. I managed to sneak in just before closing,, and rather than be perturbed by a late customer, the servers were gracious and happy to see... More

I had read a few reviews of this small, casual restaurant so when I was in the immediate area recently I took the opportunity to stop in at lunch time. There is a dining room to one side that was nearly empty, but I chose to eat at the counter. I did not see any paper menus, but there is... More

Wallingford's best-kept secret is this taqueria, which offers a broad menu and fresh ingredients that are hard to find outside Southern California. The burritos are excellent as are the more exotic dishes. The staff are warm and courteous and will help you work through the menu options.
