Hands down, the best Mexican food in the area! I will warn you though, when you pull up and look at the outside you'll think it's a whole in the wall and may not want to go in. Do it though! You will be glad you did. Fajitas are awesome. Shrimp ceviche is awesome. Drinks are excellent! This is a... More

This is the LA Mexican Food in Kissimmee. Food is good, restaurant is clean and service is good too. The only thing that concerns me is that they are letting a guy outside of the restaurant to loiter and beg. But everything else is positive.

We ate here for lunch after reading reviews. Restaurant had mainly Mexican/Hispanic diners which we thought was a good sign for a Mexican restaurant. Hubby ordered chicken fajitas which were ok, a little greasy, large portion. I ordered a combo, chicken burrito and chilli relleno, they didn't have the chilli relleno so ordered a steak burrito to go with the... More

If you are looking for some great mexican food this is the place. Very tiny restaurant but amazing food and service. Portions are huge and prices are reasonable. First time trying Modelo and was surprised at how good it was and compliments the food. The wife had a few margaritas and they were the freshest most amazing margaritas ever a... More

We haven't had any good Mexican food for awhile, so chose this place based on Trip Advisor. Very happy with the choice. Excellent (and large) margaritas started the dinner. Pollo Nachos came soon after -- an unusual but delicious nachos (add some hot sauce from table choices to spice it up though). Entree was enchiladas and chile relenos. Both were... More

As per other reviewers, it does not look like anything special from the outside, but the atmosphere inside, and food, is great! Most entrees less than $10. Really authentic Mexican cuisine. Service a bit slow but it was very busy (even on Monday)! Highly recommend the margaritas. We were disappointed they were out of fried ice cream.

Delicious large portions very authentic. Nice casual ambiance felt like Mexico. Pricy margaritas and a rude waitress with a bizarre sense of humor.

My husband and son and I had dinner here on a Tuesday night. Should not have had a 40 minute wait after ordering but hey, what do we know. My son and I had shrimp fajitas, they came out sizzling and wonderful. My hubby had the steak wet burrito and the steak was burned and semi cold inside the mildly... More

First of all, I spent about a decade in the Southwest, Second, I have an expensive belly, consisting of lots of different restaurants and styles. This is the place! The Best Mexican Food I have ever tasted. Traditional done very well. You could argue that maybe the portions were too large or that it just had too much cheese, but... More
