“1 bad experience turned us away”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I was recommended by a few coworkers for their authentic mexican food. I visited a few times and liked the food. However, last time were were there we had a very bad service by one of the staff. She had to say the last word out loud in front of other customers before we walked out of the restaurant. There's gonna be a while before we'll go back again.

“Mexican - with love”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This hole-in-the-wall dive (wedged into a strip center dominated by Indian restaurants) offers fresh ingredients, huge portions and a friendly, made-to-order staff that lovingly serves up some tasty dishes. Try the Wet Burrito with everything. For $10, you'll be stuffed!

“Tasty Wet Burrito”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

I had the wet burrito and asked to have it half beef half chicken it was very tasty and a good size meal. Dad had the nachos and said they were good, nothing to complain about. Corn chips were good too with a chili taste to them. Staff were friendly and the prices reasonable. I would go back again.

“FINALLY a good Mexican restaurant in Mississauga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Great food, great substitute if you can't drive downtown for chipotle. A bit overpriced for fast food but I don't mind!
