Total hole in the wall place. Looks a bit dumpy but that is part of its charm. Mexican food like nowhere else. I constantly crave it! Must get the King Sancho wet! It's one of the best things to eat in Terre Haute!

I love the wet plate, my husband loves the deluxe enchilada dinner, and stop here every chance we get.

Good food but place really needs a good cleaning and needs updated. Tacos fall apart very easy. The one on 3rd street is better than the one on wabash.

Living in the Wabash Valley for decades, this is a unique take on Mexican food that knows no rival. Get past the run-down buildings (two locations, one on South Third & one on Wabash Avenue) & the ordinary atmosphere, & know that the food is special---it's local!

Great fajita lunch special. Service was good, the waiter readily reflilled drinks. I ordered wrong thing and he readily made me what I actually wanted in three minutes flat. Also good free chips and salsa. Bright interior. I liked it!

The building was small and seemed a little messy and run down but the food was good. The bathrooms were gross. The staff were friendly but nothing special.

For your money this place cannot be beat. The tacos and taco burgers are to die for. Dont get carry out. It will be soggy when you get home. The cinnamon chips rock as well.

There are two of these in town. My family goes to them all the time. They are kind of hole in the wall local joints. Don't look spectacular but the food is cheap and addictive. I tell people to go here all the time. It's not like Taco Bell or Mexican restaurants - it's got it's own kind of yummy.... More

GREAT food, love the wet plate. Don't judge a book by it's cover, and don't be intimidated by the corse staff. The food is where it's at!
