Tasty burritos and heard through word of mouth that the tortas are delish. They offer delivery in Salem, Marblehead Beverly & Peabody. Salud!

“Great for a quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2011

This is a wonderful little take out spot near the Peabody Essex Museum. Good soft tacos and burritos. They also serve tortas but we did not try them. My pollo was nicely spiced, and the carnitas were excellent. My husband loved creating his vegetarian burrito and enjoyed trying out the array of bottled hot sauces. Unusual soft drinks that are" hecho en Mexico" were good and a nice change from the usual corporate America beverages. Black beans were tasty. We were there on Cinco de Mayo and we won the quiz about the origin of this Mexican holiday. The nice ladies awarded me a tee-shirt, helping to pick out the right size. It was a nice end to my birthday trip. The staff is friendly. The music was authentic and we loved it. If we had this in my town, I be there all the time! Oh, service is very fast, although we were not there at high noon, but early afternoon. There are 6 or 7 stools at a little counter for eat-in. Two thumbs up!!
