This place isn’t for everyone, but it’s a very reasonable, local food place that’s good for the whole family. No alcohol is served here, but the food is plentiful and authentic. I particularly liked the chicken fajita, and my wife raved about her tacos. They...More

Stopped there yesterday. I had 3 tacos. Asado & chicken fajita. One of the nice things with ordering tacos is you can ask for different fillings for each taco. The Asado is wonderful if you like HOT mexican food. Chicken fajita is very mild. But...More

To start with, best and hottest table salsa in Artesia! Everything on the menu is cooked fresh and you can see that happening from the dining room. They are very flexible with the menu. For example, they have a three taco plate with beans and...More

Asado tacos. Seriously the best tacos around. I love their salsa. My only complaint is the staff sometimes seem like they don't care that you are there. But..very clean (you can see them cooking in the kitchen), fast, and very good food. We travel from...More
