Get the potato tacos - you won't regret it! Amazing!! Also had a chicken mole burrito and it too was absolutely fabulous. Wonderful little place - we will be back again someday when we return to Crescent City!

We stayed for 2 nights in Crescent City and looked for a restaurant that served some vegetarian options. We found this restaurant, but doubted that the food would be any good because the decorations looked a bit cheap. How wrong we were! I ordered 3 taco's with fried potatoes and although I was full, I ate them all! I would... More

Always good inexpensive food and pleasant people in a no-frills setting but with some really tasteful wall prints which might not be noticed.

I liked the food the prices are good but the smell of the restaurant is horrible. We are not going again because of the smell. It sucks because we don't have that many choices.

The restaurant was a short drive from our hotel. Although there were other options within walking distance, Mexican food was in our mind. It was half an hour before their closing time when we got there, four park rangers were just finishing their supper. Hubby said: it must be good if the rangers eat here. And all agreed and recommended... More

We love Mexican food so we stopped here to try it. The service was wonderful, always asking if we needed anything. The food was good but not the best Mexican food we have had. The chips and salsa were very good. We would try it again.

Sorry...four out of five of the family got food poisoning after eating here. I'm pretty sure it was the frying oil, something just didn't taste right.

First of all, we had fantastic, attentive service. One of the happiest moods I've ever been in to leave a tip! Servings were large and prices very reasonable!! The tamales could have used a bit more meat in them, and I personally did not like the taste of the red sauce on my burrito supreme, but once I took it... More

The food is unreal! So good and the waitress couldn't have been nicer! I would go here again in a heartbeat. I wish I lived closer so I could. We had a party of 7 and they had no problem accomediating us. Very happy to have visited this restaurant.
