Small restaurant like a small Subway but the Mexican food is delicious.The menu has a wide variety. The price is very reasonable. If you like authentic Mexican food go here. The place is so small but it's in the corner of a shopping center

It truly doesn't get any better than this for Mexican food. Plus the owner is personally involved in serving! What a sincerely nice man! If you don't give this place a try, you will have missed an excellent experience!

Wonderful owners, serving authentic Mexican food. Because the restaurant is small take-out is good. Since we didn't know, and had only read good reviews. While we waited for the order we were provided free chips and salsa.
