Authentic Mexican with a Yummy Bakery!

On the weekends, be prepared for a wait. We waited 30 minutes for a 9:30pm sitting. Super popular place among the locals. Very reasonably priced. Large restaurant with its own wonderful bakery. Various Mariachi bands playing throughout the evening. Enjoyable music but quite loud….so if... read more

...but a great surprise. We had a great meal in a busy/happening atmosphere. Our server was very attentive (with a completely full section). Reasonably priced and very good. Totally agree with others on the green salsa !

Enchiladas were a favorite among our selection. The pico was fresh and delicious as were the chips. The chips were not greasy. Restrooms were clean and service was delivered with a smile. The only negative was the rice which arrived cool versus warm.

This is my favorite Mexican food restaurant in San Marcos. The salsas are great, especially the green one that is super spicy. I love their breakfast tacos. The tortillas are homemade and great.

Excellent food,was very delicious, order was out within 5 minutes. Waitress was a little slow getting drinks refilled, I only had one glass of tea while I was eating and she did not ask me if I needed a refill the few times she actually came to my table. She was able to give me a to-go cup. I would... More

great margaritas, good food, good service. This is one of the best mexican places in San Marcos. They also have the bakery in front, and have great prices. Give them a shot, you will not be disappointed.

I thought the salsa red and green were also very good! I love mexican style breakfast if it is good and this place is good! If we are ever in the area around lunch... More

I've been here numerous times because a) they have my three favorites for breakfast tacos ( barbacoa, chicharones and al pastor) and b) the service is excellent. I might add a c) in there today...they were open on Labor Day! The tacos are just a wee bit skimpier than some places, but bigger than a few places I've gone. They... More

It's rare to find Mexican food that's not full of flavor. Unless you're eating at Casa Maria. You'll notice it right away, when your server brings the chips and salsa to your table. The salsa is very, very spicy but lacks the taste of fresh tomatoes, cilantro and onion. The queso obviously comes out of a can, no need to... More
