Authentic Mexican food

This place is a restaurant inside a convienence store. The food is very good. It's more of a takeout place. There are a couple tables and chairs but no atmosphere. Try the burritos. They are large and yummy. The carnitas and chili verde are the best

Not thrilled with the food or service. I really miss a real authentic burrito shop!!!! The carnitas is no good here, the burritos are sloppy loose rolls,,, bland

Ive eaten here a few times, the food has always been good, I always order to-go so I cant comment on the seating. Twice Ive visited in the evening (around 7pm) and the people behind the grill seemed uninterested in giving service, absorbed in busy cleaning or would go into a back room. Im not sure what the hours are,... More

Authentic Mexican dishes prepared on sight. Great take out, especially if headed to the Beach or the river.

Nothing special here. Food is just OK, not great or anything. The service was average regarding speed of service. The friendliness of the staff would be a 3 or 4 on a scale of 10 being the best.

If you love street tacos, this is the place for you. It is true that there is no atmosphere. The food though is fantastic. We like to sit at the counter and look out on "the happenings" on main street:)

Our friends that live there took us here. We loved everything about it. Small, friendly, great service, great food and they paid.

I usually love hole in the wall finds, but this left A LOT to be desired. No smiles, no service and felt like we were an intrusion to their day. Will not be back.

Easy review - Just as good food as the review that I made 1 1/2 years ago. We have eaten here 4 or 5 times since my original review. Nothing has changed as the food is just as good as before. You want good food? this is the place. No ambiance just great Mexican food.

We have eaten a few different choices from this converted gas station - to TRUE Mexican eats and have loved everything. You have to know and love authentic Mexican, not Americanized dishes to know what I mean. Give it a try when you are in town.
