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

I go here all the time and the service has always been good. Today, there was an incident where there was a piece of hair on the plate, the staffs were willing to make me food over and refund my money back. Although I didn't take the money or the food, the staffs were very apologetic and genuine. I recommend... More

I ordered 2 gorditas and I ended up not getting what I ordered. They used to be good and now their food is starting to get real salty and they don't warm up the tortillas well enough- and it should be the easiet thing to do. Sad how such a good place has lost their passion in Mexican cuisine.

This is the best Mexican restaurant - the food is is excellent, the price is reasonable. If you have to wait in line it's because their business is BOOMING.......... If you go early in the morning you may be lucky enough to see the grandmother making the sauces by scatch!!! this is homemade -- the food is fresh and I... More

This place is the best. I can't stay away from it. Authentic, really flavorful, and great value. The family that runs the restaurant is also wonderful.
