I've driven by this place many times and always has a crowd. Stopped by for a quick to go lunch. WOW! Good stuff. Love the mom and pops places and this one is great.

It looks like nothing from the outside, but it would be a terrible mistake to judge this book by its cover. Instead, go inside and hopefully you'll get a table...or take the food to go...either way, you will get some of the best, most authentic-tasting Mexican food you can find. The tacos are delicious and they slightly cook the tortilla... More

Wonderful tacos like we had in Cancun. Reallly small and parking lot is also small. If you work downtown or pass by on your way home, it is a great place to stop for take out.

While in the area, I checked out Trip Advisor and this restaurant's menu prices looked very reasonable compared to other Mexican restaurants we have tried in the area. We decided to try it. Pulling up to the place, there were folks standing in line to order outside. We opened the door to the little seating area and it was packed... More

We found this on YELP and walked the mile or so from our hotel. It was WELL WORTH IT. It looks like a little hole in the wall, maybe a recovered gas station? Anyway, I was a little apprehensive as it didn't 'look' like my kind of restaurant. Boy, was I wrong. The food was outstanding. The service FANTASTIC. They... More

My favorite sister brought me here on my last visit to Albuquerque. I had driven past, numerous times and always wondered about it. This place is my favorite type of eatery when in town...small, crowded, with hard working people serving fresh and amazing food. The service was fast and friendly and the food to die for! We both ordered the... More

There's a definite difference in Mexican food as opposed to New Mexican. This is the true stuff that is what I'd find back home in Sur Califas or any other Mexican enclave. I found this on the Y site, and it definitely was packed so that was a good sign. The food was cheap and I could barely finish my... More

This restaurant has some surprise drinks not found at most Mexican restaurants: Tamarind, Sorrel and a few others that are normally only found in the West Indies. There is always a crowd and it is a small place, but worth the short wait to get delicious burritos, tacos and other great Mexican food!
