Delicious, affordable food

Seems very authentic. The portion sizes are great and the price is perfect. Mexican sodas & cokes available. Get a burrito, I like chicken but I've never been disappointed with any of the proteins. Unique fare like cow tongue and tripe, too. I haven't tried but they have it!

You know it's authentic when that's where local Latinos go for home cooking. Great selection of meats for tacos. I had chorizo tacos and asada tacos. They were both excellent. Great authentic sauces... None of that Americanized tomato based crap!

The staff is incredibly friendly, the prices are great, and the tacos are incredibly authentic. FYI, the tacos are tastier than the burritos.

Love the food there and will definitely go back! We ordered a bunch of tacos and some shrimp cocktail and they were all very good. Big variety on tacos and they were all great!

Everything I've had here has been delicious. A colleague from Mexico tells me that this place is the closest he can get to getting tacos from street vendors in Guadalajara. Enough said.

This is the best Mexican food i have ever tasted. Tripe tacos, sopes , fish tacos, potato tacos are amazing. It can be crowded over lunch but it is definitely worth the wait.

Come for the food- not the ambiance. It's loud, crowded, and basic. That being said- we love to eat there! When you're done pick up a prayer candle or some other sundry from the attached grocery store.
