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

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.
