“Try the pickled carrots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I always go for the carnitas burrito - ask them to grill the meat extra crisp. While waiting i have a bowl of the pickled carrots. They also have pickled potatoes. But the carrots are best.

There is nothing fancy about this place. Its a mix of anglos and mexicans at the counter. Just good mexican food.

“Inexpensive and Authentically Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

The Mexicans eat here. This small and hidden restaurant will surprise you with the quality of its
Mexican food. No luxury, no alcohol for the moment but very Mexican . Tortillas,tacos and tostadas prepared as you like.

“Inexpensive taqueria in Camarillo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

I have been to this place a few times now. Solid burritos and tacos at good prices. It is located in the corner of a mall and is usually bustling at lunch time. You order at the register then sit at a table or counter. They bring the food out to you in a plastic basket. You can grab some chips and salsa to have with your drink while you wait. The jukebox is loud when it is playing, so conversation may not be possible. That's ok, because this is not really a hang out. Just some good food.
