Good, solid Mexican food!

A typical Taqueria with a walk up counter across from the grill, staff with limited English but passion for food, and a Mexican program playing on the TV. Another one of those places where Mexican nationals come to eat, so you know it's authentic. The Burrito with Carne Asada was excellent, if a... read more

Not the place for a fancy dinner. But great authentic meals. I usually have the burritos of carne asada. It is great for a quick lunch

Arandas has great food with reasonable prices. Their lunch special starts at $4.25 and is delicious! I stopped eating Mexican food because I was tired of biting into the fat/grizzle part of the meat, but this place changed my mind. I have yet to experienced that here!!! Arandas is definitely the place I go for lunch.
