A family lunch for 8 was a bit ambitious for this small restaurant. Food is prepared quickly and expect a line up during lunch time. The combos provide a good tasting menu and you can find everything from light snack tacos to hearty burritos. The...More

This is a counter pick-up resto with basic choices, good value, a somewhat confusing menu, and OK but uninspiring lunch.

Got a beef burrito. Pretty large and pretty tasty. Chips were good. Lots of options for meat, seafood, and veggie/vegan proteins.

This restaurant keeps it simple and delicious. Order at the counter with friendly staff. Take a seat at the window, share a table or sit with your lover. High ceiling makes the smallish space seem larger. Multiple menu combos mean you can decide how much...More

Been here many, many times. Always busy, quick service, with friendly staff and clean premises. A simple yet effective menu offering a variety of very tasty mexi dishes. The beef tacos are particularly tasty.

Excellent tacos with tasty corn tortillas. The tacos are quite small which i appreciate as you can eat multiple and the combos allow you to try various flavors. All of which are tasty although the Baja shrimp is my fave. Can't go wrong!

We went for lunch and each one of us had the tortilla soup with rojas and chicken. The soup was tasty and filling. Perfect for lunch. This place is not fancy and consistently offers good Mexican food.

This friendly counter-based restaurant promises Mexican character and food. The food is reasonably good but the atmosphere is more McDonald's that characterful. The rear courtyard has potential but it needs something more. The menu needs more explanation since many items are unfamiliar to the uninitiated....More

We are a locally owned and operated and have been running since August of 2010. We are a quick service restaurant and serve authentic Mexican food made from scratch using family recipes. Handmade tortillas are made fresh to order and in front of you as you place your order. We use antibiotic and hormone free local meats and ocean wise seafood options. We have lots of gluten free, vegan and child friendly options for the whole family.
