“Not for true vegetarian”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

My vegetarian girlfriend took one bite of her veg taco, then pushed it away, saying it was really greasy and tasted fishy. My beef taco tasted ok, but the after affects visited me regularly for the whole next day. :-(

“Real Deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Hotel employee said this is where she goes for tamales - so that's where we went! Three women working in a roadside stand behind the Long John Silver in Espanola. The tamales were delicious, reasonable ($2.30 each) and authentic. I know why the lady I mentioned orders them by the dozen. Real street food.

Got there before the lunch rush and ordered a taco and burrito to go. Was excellent. Would definitely return if I'm ever in Espanola.

It is the same food as the El Paragua except it is take out. The customers are almost all locals and it is always busy. That ought to tell you more than anything else.

“Yum! Yum! Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

This might be the best place to eat in Espanola. The bean and cheese burritos are so so so good. The food is great and not expensive. There's no indoor seating. You order at a little window. When your food is ready, you can eat it at a picnic table or take it back to your car.
