The real deal

Absolutely the real deal it's got to be the best in EC without a doubt. Not fancy just great Mexican food. Simple menu, no fluff, no attitude just great service and food. Looks like a hole in the wall from the street but once inside has the feel of real Mexico cantina. My wife had a tied fish... read more

As authentic and true Mexican food as you will find outside of Texas or Southern California! In the process of relocating to a new location with a full liquor license, lookout Margarita's! Their tamales are homemade and usually only on Sunday, by 3PM they will be sold out so get there early.

My mother in law and I went for dinner this past weekend. We were a bit skeptical because of the out side appearance. Don't let it fool you! I had heard such great things, we decided to give it a try.Our meals were awesome. Best Mexican food in this area! Prices were very reasonable! We will definitely be going back.

This is a hole-in-the-wall place but don't let that fool you. This has the best Mexican food my husband and I have seen outside of Southern California. The service is friendly and fast, and they have always been willing to make requested changes to any menu item I order. Great spot!! The location could be bigger but they are moving... More

This little "hole in the wall" has undoubtedly the best authentic mexican food I've eaten on the east coast. Try the Breakfast Burrito for dinner....outstanding!! The prices are very reasonable and you won't go away hungry!!! With about 12 tables, this makes eating cozy, the service personable, and everyone talks to each other. Don't miss out!!

I eat here at least once a week. The chorizo con huevo (sausage and egg) is my staple here. The owner wants me to try different stuff but I cannot stop eating my usual. If you pass this place up for any other establishment then you have made a terrible mistake.

I have eaten at many restaurants over the years in Elizabeth City and never even heard about this place. How did I miss it? The only reason I discovered it was on Trip Advisor. And my family was not disappointed! One word comes to mind, OUTSTANDING! This is true authentic Mexican fare. I have only had Mexican food on this... More

This is the REAL DEAL of Mexican Food, no matter what you order on the Menu it will be good! And if you don't see it on the Menu just ask and they will make it for you. We have went through half the Menu items and even some thats not on the Menu like the Super Burrito and once... More
