“Decent Mexican Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2007

The food was fine, most was good, some not so.. Some of the pricing is decent, but $10 for 3 taquitos and about a cup of rice and beans isn't worth it anywhere..

“Mexican Food of the Gods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2007

This is the best Mexican food I have ever had in the U.S. I suspect that most of the people standing in the ever-present line would agree. The place is casual, the prices reasonable and the food is made fresh from only the finest ingedients. But beware, this is not dumbed-down Mexican food to appeal to the lowest denominator. Instead, this is the real deal, with actual spices and flavor. I suggest the blackened salmon salad, any of the tacos, taquitos (best on the planet) or tortilla soup. If they have specials going (typically Calimari, Chile Verde, etc.) it means the chef is having fun. By all means go for it!
I cannot say enough about the quality and value. Ask ANYONE in line. This is mexican food at its finest and has a cult-like following.

“I Frequent both locations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2006

There are 2 locations in Laguna Beach. One downtown on Mermaid and the other in South Laguna on Coast Hwy in the Albertsons/Rite Aide shopping mall. Both serve great food. The downtown location is tiny with limited seating and it is difficult to find a parking spot especially in the Summer. I have eaten at both locations since their opeining. Try the Al Pastor (seasoned pork) in a taco or burrito. Also their Carnitias is good with a peppery finish. Their spicy chicken tortilla soup is Fabulous! The food is fresh, on the healthier side, not alot of heavy sauce & cheese and not fried. Great fresh salsa bar. I've never heard a complaint from anyone I've sent their way. A great lunch spot, very casual.

“Great Mexican Take-out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2005

Great little place - everything cooked fresh to order - the grilled salmon dishes are my favorite. Definitely check this out if you want a tasty take-away meal!
