We went here on the recommendation of the front desk clerk at our motel. Very disappointing due to the food being very bland. I ordered Huevos Rancheros and ordered by eggs over easy. The counter person looked at me in a way to suggest that of course that's the way the eggs would be served. The eggs were over hard... More

My husband and I ordered huevos rancheros for breakfast. Each plate had three eggs barely cooked and covered in a watery tomato and cheese sauce with rice and beans on the side. There was NO CHILI in any form in the sauce or side dishes. If you like Mexican food, skip this place unless you are ordering a burrito. That... More

This restaurant is fast food style, cash only, but the food tastes very good. You get alot of food for the money too. I ordered combo #1 which was a beef taco and tostada with beans and rice on the side. The taco was stuffed with meat lettuce and cheese. The tostada was so tasty. I was so stuffed. The... More

We stop here every time we're in Borrego Springs and are never disappointed. The California and Nak burritos are delicious and they make killer hot sauce and spicy carrots. Definitely worth stopping by if you're in the area

This is mainly a take-out place although there is ample seating. I love most of their food, especially the fish-burrito, which may be the best in the entire world. The breakfast burritos are also excellent.

If you're looking for a quick burrito or fish taco to hold you over between desert hikes or drives--or even a full meal--this is definitely the place to go. Excellent food and fast friendly service. A favorite "fast food" joint for locals and visitors alike.

This is a Mexican deli style restaurant. The food is more authentic Mexican than the other restaurants in town but the space is spartan. I was given a huge portion of pork that i could not even finish.

Good Mexican food to take out or eat in a very casual setting, at very reasonable prices. Located right on the main street in Borrego Springs, this place has been popular with locals and tourists for a long time.
