Not only do they serve the best food, the staff is also very helpful. I stopped there due to the line and knew that it must be good.

Put aside the very small inside seating area and the fact that it is by no means fancy.....these are the best tacos in NM!

Great prices. Fast. Huge portions. Got it to go and ate in nearby park. More food than I needed! Had the pork burrito. Small amount of inside seating.

Awesome Mexican food and a great lunch spot. It's small, so there will be a wait for a table but they move quickly, never have had to wait more than 5-10 minutes. Some of the best tacos I've ever had. And cheap. Less than $2 for a taco. Yet they are probably the best I've ever had.

Found this out of the way place using a well-known app on my phone. Since it received 4.5 stars out of 5 thought I would give it a try. The mile walk was worth it. First impression : the line of 15 people waiting to pick up takeout and get in was a good sign. Additionally, few in the 45... More

We ordered the steak a la mexicana plate, a super burrito plate, and a medium horchata to go. The steak plate and horchata were delicious!Each plate had a generous amount of meat, rice, and beans. They forgot to include the tortillas,but there was still more than enough food and it was delicious even without the extra starch.

Huge portions of flavorless food. Very friendly staff. Any time in the SW, I look for menudo. Supposedly, this was the best in the city, but broth was flavorless, although choccked full of tripe and hominy. Tamales, likewise, were flavorless. Beans and flour tortillas were very good though. They have a large menu so other selections may have warranted the... More

I ordered at the walk up window. Very pleasant service. I ordered the shrimp tostada and lengua taco. They were both fresh, delicious and inexpensive. Lengua was very tender. This is not heavy Tex-Mex food, but simple and tasty Mexican.

Small and nothing fancy, but great New Mexican food! Small number of tables means you will probably have to stand outside and order at the window, but the food is worth the inconvenience.
