Authentic Taste

If your looking for authentic Mexican food, this place has it! Love the corn tortillas that come with most of the platters. Nice size portions. Leave room for dessert, the Fried Ice Cream is amazing!

It outside (and interior) of this restaurant might make you decide to go elsewhere if you have never been there, but the food is excellent. Its a gem hidden inside an ugly building. If you want authentic delicious homemade Mexican food this is the place. Give it a try you won't be sorry!!!

I go here often and always enjoy the authentic Mexican food. I usually get the enchiladas or fried quesadilla. I would highly recommend trying the homemade sauces they provide (the green is my favorite). Everyone that works here is super friendly as well and that makes for a great dining experience!

So we were out and about in Amish country looking for fabric for a quilt. After hitting up Zooks in Intercourse, and Family Farm Fabrics in East Earl, we found this hidden gem on 322. It looked abandoned, except for the neon OPEN sign. We turned into the parking lot (plenty of free parking around back) and entered through the... More

This restaurant dishes out a hearty portion of authentic Mexican/Cuban food and it is delicious! I would have given it 5 stars but I'm not crazy about the atmosphere of the restaurant. It's very small with tables close together and it doesn't remind me to be super clean but maybe that's just my imagination. I would definitely recommend trying this... More

Took my wife here since she's a fan of Mexican food and my daughter and son-in-law said it was really good. They were right. Probably the best Mexican food in the area. Go for the food, not the atmosphere since it's a small restaurant that also is a small grocery store for Mexican type food. I really like these small... More

This is a place to go to for the food but certainly not the atmosphere. You basically are eating in a grocery, even the drinks are from the cooler -- and expensive at that. The food, however, was very good and plentiful. My spouse got the chile rellano which was outstanding, probably one of the best. I got a burrito... More

My husband had a steak quesadilla of which he did not like. I had a chicken quesadilla which wasn't bad. We did not want the pico de gallo and the sour cream, so we asked for a side of regular salsa. You would think that since we didn't get the other sides, they wouldn't charge us for the salsa. Wrong!... More

We went to this place based on TripAdvisor review. We ordered TriedTacos (stake, pork, beef tounge ), Fajitas Piconte. My boys ordered enchilada supreme & today's special Buffalo chicken burrito. Everything was perfect. Never tasted such a tasty fresh mexican food. We conveyed same at the counter. We will definitely going back.
