Tiny portions. We had to go eat at another place right after, the taste was ok but not enough food. The staff didnt seem to care about the coustomers. This place is very overrated.

Tacos are super good, one of the best meals we’ve had in panama. However, the amount of food you get for your money is pretty unfortunate. My boyfriend had the trio, I ordered the 2 taco combo. We were still super hungry after that, so...More

We came seeking a local Mexican joint to enjoy a margarita and some good food. We found out they don’t serve margaritas except for weekends. The value was not there. The taco trio for $7.50 was a joke. It’s three 3.5” round tacos with your...More

Grabbed a quick, light supper here our first night in Panama City when we were exhausted and not in the mood for a big meal. The food was fresh and came out quickly, and they had at least one vegetarian option. It was a cute...More

This small little taco place is near our hotel so we stopped in. The big burrito with chicken was fantastic. We also had a variety of tacos... the fish tacos were the best

Found this small place on Trip Advisor and ate here for lunch. The food was excellent. Prices were reasonable. They have a good selection of Mexican options. I would eat here again.

Hi Mary, Sorry for the late response. All our tacos are gluten free options since we use corn tortilla. We have taquitos which can be as well an option. We can work out as well a protein bowl with some veggies and pico... More

Delicious, authentic Mexican tacos (and more!) made with fresh ingredients and lots of love. A fun, casual dining experience that will send you to the streets of Mexico City. Serving frozen margaritas and cold beers to beat the isthmus heat. Craving a mezcal cocktail? Dial the right code into the payphone in the back.
