Almost half the price

This is a good neighborhood Mexican restaurant. It is nothing to look at, but the place is always filled with Hispanics and that's usually a good sign that the food is authentic. We do carry out more than eat in. We love tamales in the corn husks and you can buy them by the dozen, frozen or cooked or split... More

This place is consistent with their food. They have a large menu with decent prices. I love that they have the hot carrots and peppers that are very fresh. I also love their mild salsa.

If your looking for good food without fancy surroundings this is the place . The servings are large and truly authentic Mexican.

This place is kind of an institution in the area. Not unusual to see a line to the door on weeknights. Food is great and service is very good. My family visits probably twice per month. During the summer my teenage son eats here twice a week. Mexican fare that's fresh with a good variety. Dine in area is kind... More

There's not much atmosphere or seating, but the authentic Mexican meals served here put every other Mexican restaurant to shame. Servings are large and very tasty. There's a large variety of items on the menu and the prices are very reasonable.

We ate here based on reviews, sounded like it would be good. The restaurant is very dumpy looking, but we tried it anyway. The salsa tasted like it came out of a jar, not fresh and did not taste good. I had chicken enchiladas and can't say for sure what kind of chicken it was, maybe just dark meat but... More

There are not a lot of authentic Mexican choices in the area, so that definitely makes this choice look a lot better. The service is good and quick and their salsa is pretty darn good. I had the quesadillas and they were OK. Nothing spectacular. My wife had the beef wet burrito and it was good. The red sauce was... More

I can't believe this place has been open for 22 years and I am just now discovering it. But is is a great find. Portions are humungous, the food is delicious, and prices are the cheapest around. The only thing missing from the menu is any seafood items, especially shrimp. But there was a hand-written sign on the door that... More

We go here all the time when we want mexican and have been going here for years. We have tried most of the menu and think they do an awesome job!! It is that hole in a wall (in a small strip mall) place that you tell everyone about and take anyone to. You can eat in (limited seating because... More
