Stopped here pretty much in pure desperation after a long drive down the PCH and overestimating the options for a meal. The place looked ok although a bit unkempt and dirty in the areas around the dining area, and the service was fine. The food was mediocre not much flavor for what is hyped as authentic Mexican. The reason for... More

Great, honest Mexican food - obviously freshly prepared in house, you can practically taste the love. They had me with the hot, freshly fried tortilla chips and salsa on arrival, but continued to impress. They have a extensive menu of all of your Mexican favorites, and a 'heat' meter to please all tastebuds. Burritos are spectacular! Great option for take-out,... More

We saw reviews for here and thought we'd give it a try as we were starving and wanted a quick meal. There are not a lot of tables inside, maybe enough for 10. They do have a little bar counter out side with stools for about 6. We were able to sit right down as we missed the rush. We... More

Haven't been here for a while, but found myself telling a friend about the amaaaazing butternut squash enchiladas. Hope they are still on the menu. They're so good I had to re-create them and am now obliged to make them every Thanksgiving. Yep, That good. Nice little place, good service. Everything is fresh and tasty. This isn't in the 'view'...

They serve you fresh mexican food, which tastes good and is priced reasonably. The quality of their food is so much better than other mexican restaurants I have gone to. The server was a very good and kind lady who takes care of your needs. You can also specify your personal tastes and spice level. For e.g. I only wanted... More

If you crave a quick Mexican meal...this is a place to consider. Fast service, made to order, no fills. The burritos, beans etc are what you have in mind, they hit the spot for you.

Thought we would find a great hole in the wall Mexican place and that we did not. It was very very average and I could have made the food better. No margs and I was disappointed by this. Go somewhere else

Good Mexican food in a casual atmosphere. Fish tacos were not the best I've had but, nonetheless, very good. Good stop for a hungry traveler heading along PCH through central California.
