“Dressed up fried food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

The food looks appetizing... Then you realize the tacos you ordered are really over fried oily taquitos with some salad greens on top. The service was poor at best, but the place at least looks nice. Also, AMEX is not accepted here. I would keep looking unless you enjoy oily food.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Food is homey here. Staff is great. It's a nice mom & pop restaurant. The menu items are limited but what they have is very good. My favorite is the Michiote. Really like this place.

“Authentic Flavors of Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

If you want made from scratch "traditional" mexican....like your abuelita this the the place. Try their caldos. This is not your border region, Tex mex, tourist type, non-native mexican food.

“deep fried crap”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

I realize its Mexican food but when you order "tacos" off the menu as I did at least be specific as to how they will be served...My 4 beef tacos came deep fried which after unrolling and attempting to eat the first one was something I would describe as "Grease taco with a shred of stinky beef dipped in oil".........It was so disappointing, that was the end of this mess....My wife told the owner and she said it was up to us to tell them we wanted them prepared differently........GROSS!.....People don't understand the correlation between satisfying customers and preparing your food with care because if they dont care about you then chances are they could care less how your food was prepared..What you dont know will hurt you.
