“Tiny Place, Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

My husband and I wandered in one day and had lunch. Food is great. Not at all like the usual mexican restaurants in town. I have never been to Mexico but I think this is more representative of Mexican cuisine. I love this place. Only complaint is I never when it is open since they close during posted normal operating hours only on their door and not on their facebook page.

“Nom nom nom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

I'm currently crunching on a tasty homemade tortilla chip with handmade fresh guacamole on top.

The place is on a street corner in downtown Salem.

It's very charming and quite tasty!!

Enjoy

“Very Good Food in a Small and Friendly Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

A nice place to sit at the bar, chat with the owner, and enjoy fresh homemade good food. The torta with choritzo were excellent, quasidillas and enchalatas quite good, the various fruit drinks interesting. Highly Recommended.

“Authentic Mexcian, with more than just tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2010

A nice corner diner / lunch counter owned by a Mexican couple. The menu is more varied than the standard Mexican restaurant. A little small, but I've never had to wait to get a seat for lunch.
