“fresh and fab”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

ok I will start with my only negative - STOP with the FOIL dishes.
The food is fresh - tasty - EVEN the TORTILLAS!!!! As someone who makes home made tortillas I love this. We had the salsa and chips, chicken enchiladas, sweet pork taco, carne asadas tacos. ALL wonderful, amd authentic. There is no service it is kind of like a buffet, but the staff are kind and helpful. the portions are large. I will be back time and time again - hopefully they get plates or i will bring my own

This restaurant offers DELICIOUS, fresh, handmade dishes with GIGANTIC portions for a fraction of the price you would pay elsewhere. Hands down this is one of the best deals for your money in the whole city.

“Good Food - Good Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

This is actually a fast food restaurant - so don't go thinking you'll have the service or quality of a full service restaurant. Having said that, the food is actually quite good, the serving sizes are very generous, and you can't beat the price. Our meals were under $10.00 and there was more than we could possibly eat.

I was a bit confused with the menu. They offer a choice of tortillas, and then you choose what type of meat you want and you are also given a choice of sauces. The people we dined with had been here before, so they made suggestions on what meats tasted good with what sauces. I'm not sure all of the sauces would have been good with all the meat, so you could possibly end up with a combination that isn't to your liking. The staff are inexperienced and made some mistakes with our order, but they were very eager to make it right. The food, while not entirely authentic, was good food - possibly the best Mexican we've eaten in Canada.
