“Good food, inexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The title says it all. Good Mexican food at reasonable prices. We wanted a quick lunch. Service was efficient, food was tasty, restaurant was clean and pleasant. Our lunch for two was $32 with tax and tip.

“fish taos here i come”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

the fish tacos A La Mexicana is the way to go. They are excellent. Come open faced filled with fish, avocados, and salsa. You could practically share the plate with someone.

“Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

A Great Place Too Get A Nice Good Meal. The Soups Are Very Good And So Is Everything Else. I Always Get The Calldo Which Is Something Excellent Too Order (If You Don't Know What Too Eat). The Service Is Alright But Could Use Some Work But Don't Let That Get In The Way Of A Good Meal.

“Great Carnitas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Very good authentic carnitas. They actually fry them in a copper pot with all the healthy manteca (lard) you could hope for. These are seriously good. I order them a la carte with guacamole.

“Good -Could Use A Remodeling”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

OK, this is not a fancy place AT ALL. It definitely could use some remodeling and updating (HINT-HINT OWNERS); however, the food is pretty good and the value is even better. They usually start you with a nice bowl of soup. Right now that it's Lent season, they have specials with lentils & fish on Fridays. They frequently have specials that include desserts. Oftentimes the place is packed with locals, and yes, Spanish rules here. Families w many kids frequent this place, so if you want romance or peace & quiet go somewhere else. If you don't mind some noise & many people, but definitely want some value, come here. I believe the owners of this place also own "Burritos Victoria" near El Paseo & Idaho (not sure why there's no reviews for that one), but that place is very similar to this one, although a bit less packed with families. I do recommend this place esp. for the value conscious.
