“Enjoy the shrimp tacos mexicanos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

they are not on the menu but they are worth asking for. Shrimp, tortilla, onions and cilantro. You will want for nothing more than this in your meal. A great place to go before or after the baseball game at Four Winds Field. It's not fancy, it's just delicious.

“Amazing Mexican Food in South Bend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

The food here is incredible, best Mexican I've had since leaving southern California. You can get the tacos "American style" with lettuce, tomatoes & sour cream, but you should go traditional and get them "Mexican style" with onions & cilantro. The red & green sauces are good, not too hot but have a nice kick. You can tell this place is authentic because they have menudo on the weekends. You can stock up on your favorites to take home, as they are located inside a grocery store. Great find!

“Best restaurant in town, seriously”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

This place is the best place in town. By far the best Mexican in the area. Don't be off put by their presence inside the grocery store, they make great food. Sunday's and Wednesday's are dollar taco nights, which means you can eat here for cheaper than McDonald's. Get yourself some asada tacos, Mexican style, on corn tortillas, you will thank me later. This place is usually busy, especially on Sunday's and Wednesdays, so you might have to wait. Definitely worth it. If you're looking for authentic Mexican, this is the place, best Mexican food I've had since living in southern California.

“Dollar Tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Sunday and Wednesday nights are dollar taco night!! It's a fantastic value for some authentic, local Mexican cuisine. The tacos are small, but so delicious. The meat options are as extensive as lamb, which is unique. This place is great, but small, so the line is out the door some nights. Get there early on the deal nights! Overall, a great place with good, quick service.
