If you love mexican food, this is a restaurant that you must visit. The food from this restaurant is all cooked from scratch and with much care. The portions are generous and worth the money.

This a little hole in the wall, with very friendly staff, where we tired the burritos, tacos, and quesadillas. I didn't like the tacos. The soft shells were soggy and cold and the tacos were small and lacked flavour. They did not come with sour cream or salsa, which is a deal breaker for me. Burritos were a little to... More

The tacos were tasty and the staff was friendly. Mexican food does not have a singular "taste" like the previous reviewer noted. We enjoyed the flavor profiles highlighted in the unique salsa and sides, and will return to try other items on the menu. If you are looking for mainstream or typical mexican, look elsewhere. We recommend the Poblano or... More

The place is very tiny. Plan on getting your order to go. I went on the recommendation of a colleague. My choice was a Tequila Lime Chicken burrito with peppers. It was heavy. I weighed it when I got home...1.5 pounds. I was not able to taste the distinct flavors of each ingredient. Perhaps, that is the nature of burritos.... More

As the previous poster noted, this is a hole-in-the-wall. Think of it as a taco stand/takeout, not a sit down restaurant. There are only a couple of chairs, and there is no public restroom. However, the food is great, and the portions are generous. I'll be back.

Amazing. This place is the definition of "hole in the wall" but the food FRESH, and prepared with great care. We had the special: Burrito with pork and sweet potato. I've had a lot of burritos, and these were outstanding. Ask for their homemade jalapeno salsa. I've never had better. It's not "I dare you to eat this" hot. It's... More
