Hidden Gem: Best restaurant in town

This restaurant has great food and ambiance, and you would never know it from the street. From the street it looks like a dive, but inside it is cozy, sweet, and romantic and the food is excellent. No burritos or other cheap American-Mexican standard fare, just authentic, fresh dishes made to... read more

Don't judge the place by the exterior which looks uninspiring. The interior is lovely, the food fantastic and the service great. A great treat and unusual Mexican food, all freshly made.

Delicious tacos and tortillas. Everything is lovingly hand made; various sauces are available (try them all). Fantastic beer list. Warm and friendly wait staff.

One of the best meals I've ever had. Had tortillas, one of each variety, all with pork. Hard to pick which was my favorite, all were delicious. Also had the sangria, also great. My husband had a tamale, which he really liked, but the tortillas were better. Jus unlike anything I've had before. Really different and great. Definitely get the... More

Sure it doesn't look like much but driving past this place, I made my guy make a U-turn and go back. I simply HAD to eat there. I just had a feeling about it being great and I was mostly pleased. I loved the owner and his wife. She told me about how the recipes are from her grandma (abuela)... More

we have been here at least 4 times in the last two years and I will say that the food is wonderful & the service is very good! It would be much recommended to call ahead for reservations as this restaurant is small and has limited seating. The food is homemade and has above average pricing, but once again it... More

This little diner converted to a restaurant serves excellent Mexican Mayan food. Ingredients are very fresh, service is great. Seating is limited, but if you can snag an outdoor table it provides an urban feel dining experience. The menu is also somewhat limited, but they do have specials. If you get tacos I suggest the panuchu (taco shells stuffed with... More

So happy to find quality Mexican/Mayan food in the mountains of VT. The food is amazing and the atmosphere fun. Servers and bartenders are attentive and pleasant. If you are any where close to Brattleboro dont miss it.

After reading the sterling reviews on Tripadvisor, we were anxious to give this place a try during our family vacation. It was sorely disappointing, however. Our beers came out lukewarm and were overpriced. The tamale, billed by our waitress as large, was actually quite small and was overpriced at 14.00 - the dish itself was average at best. The meat...

Food made fresh. Family run and always good. Be sure to check if they are open as they are sometimes open only on weekends. And make a reservation!
