Que rico! Hands down best authentic Mexican restaurant in Dayton.

This is everything you could want in a Mexican restaurant - delicious food, casual atmosphere, friendly wait staff, bilingual menus, endless tortilla chips, telenovelas on the TV, imported decor, and cheap prices. If you want real Mexican food, this is the only place to go. FYI the bathrooms are... read more

If you want real Mexican food, this is the only place to go. FYI the bathrooms are located on the exterior of the building

Try this place if you crave real Mexican fare. Having lived in Arizona, and travelled multiple times to Mexico, this restaurant brings back fond memories. The salsa makes my scalp sweat, which I love. The campechana dishes--all of them--are addictive. The burritos with cheese sauce are good to the last bite. And the horchata? Well, have you tried horchata? You... More

Not the best location and has a "hole in the walk" decor, but the food is worth a visit. Fast, friendly service and great Mexican food choices will make you want to come again and again. Be aware that they do not serve beer or wine BUT you can bring your own.

This is the place for Mexican in Dayton. Outstanding food prepared fast. Cane Sugar Coke too. Took the family here and everyone raved about the food. Even the grandkids ate their meals. I will go back here for sure. Small restaurant but the know what they are doing.

Service was slow and food was bland. Chicken mole had a large bone I found the hard way. Will not go back.

We have had this on our list for quite a while due to the great reviews. We are glad we finally made it there to eat. It is very authentic and fresh. The salsa and guacamole are excellent as are the chicken sopes and veggie haurache. Service was good. It is not a fancy place, a much renovated Burger Chef.... More

Simple fast Mexican food. The steak tacos were reminiscent of my time in Leon, Mexico. Good food, interesting atmosphere.
