“Awesome authentic Mexican food experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We learned of this Mexican restaurant via tripadvisor. The reviews are spot on. We tried the fish tacos, chili verde burrito, and margaritas over two visits. The food was really, really good. The service is excellent and staff very friendly. One night, we got there a little before their 9:00 pm closing, but they offered to seat us anyway! Wow. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Authentic food & great margaritas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011 via mobile

This is a small place in a strip mall, but very good. Seemed to be family owned and popular with the locals. The staff was very friendly. We had fish tacos & they were good sized and very good. Prices were reasonable. The margaritas were large and tasty. There is a large selection of authentic Mexican food to choose from and everything we saw being served looked delicious.

“Authentic, delicious, and a great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011 via mobile

Everything I've gotten here is fresh, authentic, and so wonderful. This place isn't about decoration or ambiance, it's about awesome food and strong drinks, all at a great price!

“Little Gem in Simi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2009

This small mexican restaurant in a strip mall is worth a visit. The food is full of flavor, the prices are very affordable. i would agree the salsa is the best in Simi, but that isn't saying much becuase most of the other mexican restaurants in Simi are pretty bad.
