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

We try and eat here with friends at least once a month. The food is authentic and very good. It's a small place and fills up fast. Chori-Pollo and a Victoria beer is a favorite! If you're hungrey, ask for the super burrito that's not on the menu, it's HUGE! It looks like a fat license plate! Can't wait for... More
