Best Authentic Mexican Food

This is the best authentic mexican food I have ever eaten! Seems kind of like a whole in the wall restaurant but the food speaks for itself! We will be back!

Bought lunch for our Grand Rapids staff. Had heard this was excellent Mexican food. People waiting out the door told me "jackpot." Shrimp tacos had some bang to them. The chips and guacamole were in the conversation for best ever category. If I lived here, this would be once a week, easy.

We are on a quest to find the best Mexican food around the area. After reading a lot of reviews, we thought this may be it. It was not. The food was ok, but not great.

Authentic Mexican Restaurant, Affordable, Great Food. The Alambre is AMAZING!, plus if you like shrimp, they have a version with shrimp. The Restaurant is nothing fancy, but clean. if you are looking for great authentic Mexican food, you gotta try it.

This authentic Mexican restaurant is by far one of the best meals in Grand Rapids. They have recently moved down the street into a larger and cleaner location. 11 individual booths and tables over doubles the size of the original location. The food here is the real deal and will not disappoint. The tamales are large and wrapped in husks-... More
