The dishes are made like homemade, so it's not watered down. If you like Americanized Mexican cuisine then don't eat here. They make their lard which they use in the beans, very delicious. They also serve a low carb menu for those on a diet. The pork carnitas are the best. My sons enjoy the burritos. The fresh salsas at... More

Greeted at the door and immediately had a waitress ready for business. Had the burrito with queso cheese sauce. It was very good and large very large. There was what looked like a pound of beef ( it was at least the size of a 1 pound roll of ground beef if not bigger). I will frequent this small and... More

Don't let the outside of this quaint gem fool you. The food is amazing . Service has always been friendly and usually a fast service. Servings are generous and delicious, including the burgers. The Shrimp el Ray is big enough for 2. The complimentary unlimited chip and salsa bar is a nice start. This is our family favorite.

A college buddy introduced me to this place about 6 years ago, and ever since it's been a must-go place to bring visitors to eat. If you like a more "American" cuisine then try the chimichanga's, but for a more authentic taste I recommend the Pork Sopes.

The very best restaurant for authentic mexicano in the tri-parish area. Everything on the menu is delicious, you can't go wrong. Only place I have ever found that has a buffet with several choices for salsa (sauve y caliente - mild and hot), roasted jalapeno chile ( would love some roasted serranos too) and warm tortilla chips, of course. Try... More

Wonderfully prepared fresh- not frozen food. The owner is a great American! Some of the best Mexican food around.
