Value and Great Food meet here for authentic delicious Tex-Mex

Unless we're looking for cheap food, stop here for low priced food with fresh flavors at all times. My favorite usually is a burrito. All ingredients are fresh, and your order is cooked entirely while you wait. I've never been disappointed here.

We have been over 20 times and my son says it's the best restaurant on this planet. I'm a fan! We stick to the burritos and tacos though the menu is huge, loaded with everything from Peruvian chicken to burgers. Consistently good!

Always great and fresh! Our family and friends love that burritos are discounted after 10pm - right when the urge hits!

limited, cramped seating with shabby south-of -the-border décor, but decent Tex-Mex at reasonable prices. Call ahead if you don't want to stand around for 20 minutes or more.

One of my favorites in the area. Their meals are reasonably priced and its always a good crowd there. Their corn chowder soup is a great lunch onto itself. It has been a steady go-to place for me for years.

Eat here all the time, it is our "go to" place, the food is always fresh and the prices are great. After 10pm the burritos are only $5. and often our kids go for their second dinner at that time (teenagers and college son..big appetite). We get the chicken with the 3 sides at least once a week, its a... More

The food prices were decent, but you have to remember is that it is a very small venue. The menu was very long, so it also had BBQ and Peruvian food. The service is also very slow on the weekends, so keep that into consideration. Would I come back...maybe

For it's location from home (less than a mile from our house in Sea Cliff, NY). To a wonderful and flavorful menu. The prices are GREAT. My boyfriend and I ate lunch for under $20.00. What a GREAT FIND!
