Very good food

This is not a TexMex restaurant. The food prepared here is what the mother/grandmother was raised on during her childhood in Mexico. They do serve tacos, gorditas and chalupas but they are not what you typically find at TexMex restaurants. When you eat here for the first time, expect something... read more

Yum. Family run. I've been coming here for years. I love the fajita and the brisket Gorditas. Worth the drive from Austin. They also have superb salsas here.

You won't find greasy Tex-Mex food here! All is prepared fresh and you can even watch them make it! Vegeterian as well as choices of meats for your tacos, quesadias, enchiladas, nachos, etc. And right next store is Sandstone Cellars Winery and you can order your meal and have it delivered to the winery. What a great deal!!

This little locally owned taquiria is only open on Thursday-Sunday but its hoping on those days. Good food, cold margaritas (malt versions) make this a comfy place to have a tasty meal.

Super fun patio. Fresh yummy food. I love the Gorditas. I think the pork is the best. A great service...you can order food and then amble over to the wine bar next door and they will bring your food to you. Great outdoor seating!

If you like meat filled pockets then the Gorditas will hit the spot. We ordered the Gordita plates and I could finish only one of them -took the other to have for breakfast. We also had the queso and chips which is a separate order but it was perfect. The salsa was similar to pappasitos salsa so for me it... More

My husband had the gorditas, which he really enjoyed...tortilla pockets filled with fajita meat- yes please! I had the cheese enchiladas, which I'm still thinking about...and our kids had the quesadillas which come with cheese or veggies or meat...also... More

Yummy handmade food that's prepared in the small kitchen. Nice with a sangria or winearita to enjoy at the wine bar next door. Live music on the patio and front yard on occasions during the weekend

The house-made tortillas and hot sauce are great! I ordered the chicken fajitas and they were fantastic. I also really liked the garlic rice it came with which is not traditional Mexi-rice. The only negative was the layout of the tables ad decor in the space.
