I think I'm in love... this is the closest to Mexico you can get without actually going to Mexico. I can't say enough about this place. We go weekly to treat ourselves.

Had lunch here on a week day. Minimal wait, lots of choices, including vegetarian dishes. The food was very good and a fairly large meal was about $10.00. The restaurant is located in a grocery store, which has interesting foods, a bakery and Mexican art, such as pottery, decorative mirrors, wall hangings, woven place mats, etc. There is both street...

Very good food but never ever run out of salsa on salsa bar! We dined after 8 pm on a Friday. Some language barrier through service which made our meals cost extra, just wanted ala carte burrito but got meal I did not want. Food is great though!

Stopped here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. I didn't know about the parking lot in the back but street parking out front was readily available. Walking into the market, you know you're walking into an authentic Mexican establishment. Browsing the gift selection was very fun and walking through the market was also an experience. The bakery selection looked FANATASTIC!... More

We used a dot com deal from Twin Cities Live to try this place out. TCL had done a piece on it and it looked so good! We were so happy it tastes as good as it looks. There is a lot of parking out back but it was full so we parked across the street from the parking lot... More
