The place appears to be a hole in the wall but the food is just great. You get big burritos full of meat which is a great way to eat good food.

Authentic Mexican cuisine, extremely affordable, great tasting, freshly prepared. Counter service is acceptable. A mix of clients hispanics, soccer moms, business people, etc. Plenty of seating available and a driver in. Love this place!

My wife and I purchased the carne asada sandwich which was very good. I saw what the burrito looked like afterwards.... looks like I will definitely get a few of them to GO next time!

I have only eaten here for breakfast but thoroughly enjoyed it. I had eggs with chorizo and tortillas with coffee and found it to be a nice change of pace from the typical biscuit/bacon/egg grind. Don't let the cultural differences scare you. This place is worth trying.

Been going here for years. Nothing short of good, hot, authentic Mexican cuisine. Highly recommended if you want the real thing. No Tex-Mex nonsense here! Very good.

No secrect that we have a high percentage hispanic population. They do an excellect job on everything. Redolent with fresh cilantro. Burrio is freshly sliced meat cook to order. Best one ever and spicy. Go there lots for lunch and need no dinner.

Super tasty real Mexican taqeria. But don't be intimidated, they cater to anglos too. The menu is in Spanish and English and the cashiers are all bilingual. They have a small salsa bar inside. If you want cheese on your taco you have to request it, apparently real Mexican tacos don't have cheese.

Great authentic Mexican food for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks at very reasonable prices. They have a wide variety of dishes and soft drinks. Try the pescado a la plancha and an horchata drink. The dining area may lack a Mexican ambience, but the food makes up for that. I have eaten there twice and look forward to going back... More
