I just had to try this place again due to how good my first experience was. So I brought a friend with and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The gentleman working the counter was swamped but had time to joke with us while we waited our turn. Well the food was just as fantastic as the first time, I had... More

I had dinner there twice: service was slow and surly, décor was tacky, and the food would be easy to walk away from. I can't think of one reason to ever go there again.

We were driving up and down Robert Street having a tough time deciding where to eat. We saw this little Mexican place-kind of a hole in the wall spot and we both love Mexican food so we thought let's give it a try. The worst that could happen is we have a bad meal, wouldn't be the first time. We... More

I've been coming here for 10 years. The owners are from Mexico City and make authentic Mexican food. I think the Tinga tacos are the best.(Cravable) I've brought most of my friends here- my brother from Seattle, and several of my co workers. They have all really enjoyed the food as well. It is a litte bit of a hole... More

Recently went here to try out a new Mexican restaurant. It was later in the evening when we went and the place was deserted. There was one couple in the place, otherwise it was empty. The staff didn’t seem overly helpful when we went to order, but they were courteous. The place seemed like a hole in the wall, but... More

We went because we had a groupon. It is a small family owned place with authentic food. Contratry to other reviews, our food was prepared quickly, wasn't greasy, and was warm. The husband and wife who run the place are very friendly and offered us a few extras for free because we were the only ones eating there (he said... More

Awesome food for the person wanting authentic Mexican. The tacos are to die for....yummy beans and home made rice. The place can be a title messy at times and occasionally you can see the owners kids running around the place. A very nice family welcoming place.

Sure, cruising down Robert might result in you going to Taco Bell, Chipotle or Chula Vista, but you should be eating here if not Pineda Tacos, on the far end of Robert. Large portions or smoky, shredded beef, rice, beans, fresh cut onions and cilantro greeted me when I ordered one of their platters. Piling the overly generous portions onto... More
