Hole in the wall with great food

If you don't mind sitting in a worn out, uncomfy, hole in the wall while eating great authentic Mex food, then this is the place. Cheap eats, awesome! Good location for us, too. Nothing fancy but a great place to grab some tacos or giant burritos with all the fixings. And don't worry, they... read more

The mini chimichangas and steak tacos were amazing! I would go back in a heartbeat! I do wish it was closer to home though

I really like their food- I've only had their food truck, but they are always busy. The food is delicious and the service is always fast and friendly.

Lived in West Allis 3 years before finally trying it. Beans and rice were delicious, and that is it. Had a gordita dinner, meat was dry and flavorless. One chicken, one pork, NOT good. I guess if you've never had decent Mexican food then it's just fine.

Reasonable prices and good food. Staff is friendly and helpful. I had tacos AL pastor with rice and beans. Portions were plentiful. The building is a bit tired and small.

We had heard many good things about the taco truck run by this restaurant and we thought we would give the restaurant a try. The restaurant is the type where you walk in, order and then either take the food with you or it is delivered to you table. The staff is very friendly and the service is very quick.... More

Ordered the Chimichanga (Pollo) dinner. Maybe the best Chimi I've ever had. Ranks right up there with Caliente in Manhatten. They said food would be ready in 15 minutes. Got there in 10 it was ready to rock 'n roll! Yes, I'll be back!!

First of all I want to say that the service here has been amazing the MANY times I have gone. They know my order (Nachos with EXTRA EXTRA jalapenos, and a large chata to drink) even when I don't go for several months at a time. I have never had even the slightest issue with the service. This is a... More
