“Great, inexpensive taco-stand style food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We eat here regularly - it's the most authentic casual Mexican food we've found in Asheville. The tacos are typical, classic taco stand tacos, much like what I grew up on in Southern California. The shrimp ceviche tostadas are great - we order them every time. My husband likes their burritos and I usually get tacos al pastor. Yum! I see that others have complained about service, but I think they don't realize this is *not* a type of place where you have a waiter for your table - it is mostly a take-out restaurant that has tables if you happen to want to sit there and eat your taco while it's most fresh and perfect, and watch Spanish television channels. :) They do pack food for take out fairly well, so we often get our meals to-go since it's only ~5 minutes from our house and the food doesn't suffer all that much in a short trip home.

“Best tacos in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

The most authentic tacos in town, and at $1.50 each it's a go to for a quick and affordable meal.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

The food was great! You get a lot for your money. The environment was nice but the service was kind of crappy. They took our order, brought it out and never checked on us again. We had to flag somebody down to get the check after sitting there for a half hour just waiting.

“Authentic Mexican Food and Well Priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

This is not a restaurant most people would find on its own. It is located in a small strip shopping center that is a little elevated from the road. However, it is worth the effort to find it since it serves some of the most authentic and cheapest Mexican food in the area.

For example they serve two types of tacos, tacos gringos and tacos authenticos. The gringo tacos come with all of the standard fixings such as cheese and sour cream, while the authentic tacos only have the meat ordered and little else. This is just the way that they would be served in Mexico.

They also have unusual items like tongue and Menudo (cow stomach) for the adventurous eater. I had a tongue taco and a burrito and both were great.
