“Ok..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Nice staff, but I wouldn't recommend their breakfast burrito, it wasn't very good. The other things they sell might be better though:)

“Incredibly tasty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

This place is not fancy at all and does not have an alcohol license. But, wow, the food is truly outstanding. Try a burrito made enchilada style! Also, the enchiladas (cheese) were fabulous.

“Good, quick mexican food but easy to miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This little place has a very small storefront on a side street just off of Pacific Beach, easy to miss but worth the stop especially if you're looking for quick mexican food (but not fast food). The food wasn't really cheap, especially if you wanted sides or chips, but it was pretty reasonable and the quality was good.

“Fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

It would be easy to walk past the ordinary looking store front, but this place is worth stopping for! The pork tacos were delicious and burritos were great, and just excellent value. The service was friendly - would happily return!

“Tasty tacos and enchilades”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The taco and enchilada plate we had was delicious. Very fresh and authentic tasting. We went back for breakfast the next day though and were disappointed with the huevos rancheros. I'd go again for their fish tacos and enchilades though!
