“True Mexican food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I love the authentic Mexican preparation and sauces. I eat there every time I get near the place.
Only drawback to some is the "cash only" payment plan so stop at an ATM before you go in and it is definitely worth the effort!!
A word to the wise, if they say something is spicy, it is!!! The real deal Mexican food!

“Eat here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Great little hole-in-the wall place that I try to get to whenever I am downtown. Order and pay at the counter and get authentic, simple, no-frills, very good food, with daily specials. Corn tortillas are warmed in front of you on a hot plate and filled with well-seasoned ingredients that you can top with hot sauce, cilantro and onions. Grab a seat at the counter or along the counter facing large windows that looks out onto Main Street. Go often enough and you will be called by your name. Always friendly, down-home and very casual. Locals love it.

“Yo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This is a seasonal , little, very authentic Mexican place located right in central Bozeman. Owners are over the top nice, crowd is discerning, food is basic tacos and burritos and the like but good and fresh and made with love. Not fancy, just good.

“exceptional Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Authentic Mexican food and a great value on the main street in Bozeman. The tacos were wonderful but the refried beans were divine! The verde sauce was hot but flavorful. Small restaurant with outdoor seating makes the experience fun.
