Good value for the price

The place is not fancy, the location may not be great either, but the food was really good, cheap and the service was excellent. This is the kind of places we love visiting while we are travelling, small hidden gems were you can find mainly locals.

We found this place by looking for a Mexican restaurant while travelling. It is off of the main path by a few blocks, but worth the detour. We weren't sure of the place at first - it shares a building with a gas station - but once inside all was ok. The restaurant is very clean and well kept and... More

Don't let the fact that this is next to a gas station fool you. Very good authentic Mexican food at a reasonable price. With a group of three two of us had the chili relleno and one of us a steak, sausage, pepper and cheese dish with tortillas. All of the food was delicious and the portions were very ample.... More

After reading the rave reviews of this place, especially about the tacos, I was very excited to try for myself. I personally do not care much about appearances or service, it's all about the food. I was so disappointed when the food arrived! I can honestly say it was one of the worst meals I've ever eaten. The meat had... More

Loved our delicious and quick lunch here on the way to the Keys. Based on reviews, we were hoping for an authentic mexican taqueria and we were not disappointed. The barbacoa taco was also great.

Ate lunch here after visiting Everglades National Park. The tacos are amazing! I had the Carne Asada, Barbacoa, and Al Pastor. The Carne Asada was the best! Simple tacos with a soft flour tortilla and choice of meat. There is a great salsa bar to add to the tacos. We also tried the Chicken Flautas. They were very flavorful. Service... More

This is not a fancy place, but the food is good and at a good price. Good, basic Mexican food. The serving sizes were generous and the food came quickly, but there was no feeling of being rushed.

After eating here I am now spoiled for tacos, our local places pale in comparison. I had the chicken and pastor, both excellent, nicely spiced and served with a slice of avocado on top. My husband had a wider selection and was thrilled to find tongue as a standard menu item. We were so pleased with dinner that we went... More

This place has some of the best truly authentic Mexican food. Wide range of entries and salsa's. Some people might want to call this place a "hole in the wall" but the food can't be beat.

Stopped here for directions but ended up with a takeway meal. Staff was very helpful & friendly. Not a big place but petite with a lot of latino food choices.
