Our burritos were tasty and authentic. I really liked the hot salsa. Our plate came with pico de gallo and guacamole. My only complaints are that the prices were more expensive than comparable Mexican food in the area. Also, we saw a wifi signal for...More

I ordered two tacos, one beef and one chicken. Though I was a weird order, the owner was happy to oblige. Everything has a made from scratch taste and was very good.

Just as good or even better than what you would find in Mexico at very fair prices. Many different options to choose from.

As another reviewer said -- unpretentious. The chef (wife) is from Mexico City and cooks authentic Mexican food (not Tex-Mex! according to the husband). We had an enchilada and Taco pollo, and both were fabulous. Easily the best Mexican food we have had in Cuenca....More
