If you are looking for a great lunch, this is the place.

Great value. Great food. Cleanliness.... not so much. Dust covered fake plants, etc. Paint and straightening up would help as well. Pollo tacos were awesome. Lots of tender meat, onions and cilantro. Homemade sauces were complex with ranging heat levels. Bottled sauces also available.

Skip the chains and come here. The tacos de pastor are delicious as are the dripping in grease quesadillas. All the charm of a hole in the wall. If fancy is more important to you than flavor, don't come here. If you want one of our few authentic taco places, come here. Support locally owned businesses that serve great food.

OK...it is not one of the best restaurant meals I've ever eaten.* BUT, this place makes the best tacos I've ever eaten. Great flavor, authentic, good sauces, cheap. If I could only eat tacos one place the rest of my life, this would be it. Go THERE! *(I'm 68 and have eaten great meals in about 20 countries on four... More

This is the place to go if you want real tacos, with no frills. Five of us each ordered a different stuffing in our tacos, and everyone was pleased. This is not a fancy restaurant. It is a small "joint" with a big menu. Take your out-of-town guests there only if they are asking for authentic Mexican food. And you'll... More

Although the decor leaves a lot to be desired. It is one of the most authentic Mexican resturants in fort Myers. It is worth finding.

This place has really changed! Now they accept debit/credit cards which is a big plus since im always on the go. Great delicious Mexican tacos, pops, and authentic drinks from Mexico. If you're tired of McDonalds or BK...stop by and get some tacos al pastor (my personal favorite) and a ice cold Corona...you wont regret it!!!
