I love awesome hole in the wall restaurants that have authentic food! My mom and I went there for lunch on a weekday and it was hoppin'! We each ordered a lunch special.

I had heard this place was great and it didn't disappoint. Definitely not fancy, but I actually thought the "hole in the wall" feel was really charming. We started with chips and salsa. Like all the food, they are made to order. Our chips arrived and were still hot-and tasted awesome! I had a burrito, my friend had a chimichanga.... More

Local mexican cook (family type restaurant) with home style cooking and sauces. Portions were large and it was serve yourself drinks from their store cooler. They also sell pre-package mexican condiments etc. no alcoholic drinks and relatively small with one server to take orders both for sit down and takeouts.

This place has good Mexican food. The only thing I don't like is they don't have fountain drinks nor do they serve free chips and salsa. They have a cooler you can get drinks from but none of the meals include drinks. It's a small dining area but I love the authenticity of the place!

Ok this place is good but slow and cost too much for what it is seriously this looks like a grocery store cover up I would avoid or you can be at the wrong place at the wrong time.....

Nice September evening. Set out on deck. Wife had the Enchiladas special plate. I had the Chile Rellanos. We both really enjoyed our dinner. I am excited to have good Mexican food in the country. Will make many more trip here.

We were told to try the place, well worth the drive from Reading, Pa. Great food at a great price. The inside looks like a used gas station but don't let that fool you: food was incredible. We were greeted as soon as we walked in and our entire meal from start to finish was terrific. Def not a date... More

Super affordable food that is absolutely delicious! Two of my favorite dishes are the chicken chimichanga and the plantains with cream. My husband and I eat here at least 1x a month, and enjoy taking our friends out to dinner at this hidden gem.

This place is the real deal! Fresh, authentic Mexican food. Don't expect a nice restaurant or ambiance, but good ( cheap) food is what you will get.

We found this place when it was only a grocery just setting up a snack counter. Little by little, Litotes set up a few tables at a time. Soon there were more tables than groceries. The food and pricing are excellent. Very worth the visit.
