“Quite a plesant surprise for Mason Texas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Had dinner there last weekend. Food, sauces, and home-made corn tortillas were very good. Service was suspect and difficult as the person taking orders knew nothing about the menu, had a limited English vocabulary, and wasn't capable of making any recommendations for a first timer at the eatery. Other than service expect a good food experience at this little taqueria next to a great winery and wine bar.

“Slow service but worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Go over to their wine bar and sip a glass of wine while you wait for your food. I believe it's the only place in town you can get wine.

“Amazing fresh gorditas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

Most sublime gorditas ever can be found at this vintage gas station (now a restaurant). A a steamy fresh corn cake stuffed with barbacoa (slow-cooked shredded meat). Do not miss the array of homemade hot sauces. The one with chile de arbol was my favorite.
