“Best Taqueria in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

We go here about once a week it's that good! The grounds are very clean and the bathroom is one that I feel is one of the cleanest in town. The staff is very friendly and though they sometimes mix up an order they always make up for it. The food is great and they have some authentic dishes that expand the normal Mexican food in other places in town. Try something new you might be surprised how much you like it.

“good mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We're locals so we come here pretty often, very convenient location and of course we wouldn't be back again and again if the food sucks, right? :)
My husband and I like the super burritos, its huge so we always split it.
One thing that we hope they will pay attention to is, please do not sweep very close to our table while we're eating our meal. That's really disturbing. Its just EVERY TIME we're there, they always sweep the floor around us, even under our table, would be nice if they can wait til the customers leave.

If you are looking for a great chile relleno, this is the place! It is so good. It is all about the food here and it is great.

The food is good...what can I say...it's authentic Mexican food, but how many Mexican restaurants does Placerville need?!?!

“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

A favorite place for Mexican food. A large selection, great salsa bar, and very affordable. They even have a good variety of dishes with fish. I love their taco salads.
