“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

By far the best Tex-mex you Can get in Amsterdam! Friendly owner, great atmosphere, nice music, just a nice laid back joint with great food. The tacos are awesome. Prices are more than fair for what u get.

“Authentic Mexicali in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

a little out of the way for most visitors (probably), as its tucked away on the Amstel in de Pijp but it's worth the trip. Friendly owner, great prices and delicious food.

“Excellent Tex-Mex”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This was by far the best Tex-Mex food I've tasted. Never tasted it in America, so I can't compare to "the real thing", but something tells me that the American dude who runs the show knows his thing.

We were a group of six who tried everything on the menu (ordered different things), and no one was disappointed!

I you like Tex-Mex, this place is a must-do in Amsterdam!

“Mexico in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The shop was at the bottom of our map of Amsterdam, but we took the tram and went to look for it, we were so happy to arrive. The owner, a friendly American, greeted us friendly and advised us not to order to much since the plates were big, but oh my, was the food GOOD! We had the quesadillas and the chicken nachos and we were so happy with our food. Do realize it's a "taco shop" so no candlelight dinner, but real savory Mexican food, just the way we like it!

“tex mex takeaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Fantastic little tex mex shop. Ordered a super taco and chili buritto to go. Food was simple and good quality for the price. I like shop too !!!! Really laid back atmosphere. There were locals eating in and blues playing on the system. ( Hooker, Muddy waters etc) Enjoyed reading the wall and seeing which celebs had eaten here !!!! would return for the laid back vibe and quality of food for your Buck. (Sorry Euro) !!!!!!
