I like hole in the wall type of places. This one fits the bill. Good food. Could be easily missed. Try the Carne asada. Served on french fries. Different, but really good!

Great green chile enchilladas. I'm not from Phoenix, but was introduced to this place & had to have it at least twice a week for the 5 weeks I was there. Very addicting. Like the other review says, get it to go. You can only...More

I've eaten here for 25 years, and in that 25 years I have searched for a better machaca....can't find it. Even in Mexico! Great food, great prices.....Get it to go, no atmosphere....
