This is a little whole in the wall - I saw the Yelp reviews so we checked it out - said it was the place locals go. Food was great. I had fish tacos which were very fresh. They were small and very busy, so there was a little bit of a wait (wasn't an issue for us).

Not fancy and a little hard to find, but really good food. Small. We had to wait about ten minutes but well worth it. Prices are very good.

This place serves good American-Mexican food, definitely a cut above average. The prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. We had a burrito, a chile relleno, a quesadilla, and a crispy taco; we will pleased with all of them. It is located in a small strip-mall next to a laundromat. There are about 6 or 8 tables, and a...

We were there when it was freshly opened for Sunday evening. We had high hopes because of other reviews we had read. The chicken white meat was pretty dry and many of the chips were not crispy but they bent! Yuk!

If you're looking for authentic Mexican food, this is the place. It was crazy busy, service was slow, but it was worth the wait. Good prices and the staff was friendly.

I was surprised when we got here after being directed here as a great Mexican place that they seemed to be more American-Mexican than authentic Mexican. No traditional Mexican meats (chorizo, etc), and the same red sauce went on every item I ordered no matter what it was. The food was good but I was so very underwhelmed by the... More

We asked the clerk at our motel where to find good Mexican food and she recommended this place. Said all the locals like to go there. Very busy, very quick, excellent food.

If you truly want excellent Mexica food along the coast between Jenner and Fort Bragg this is the place to eat. Well worth the drive. Hidden in the back of a strip mall.

Well it says on the web review by one person "best little hole I the wall." It's true only seats maybe 45 we waited outside for a table, the smellavision was almost a meal on its own! I had Camarones Ranchero fresh from the boat shrimp. My wife had what she described as the best cheese enchilada, and fresh avocado... More

Would never have stopped here if I hadn't read good reviews. Don't go for decor or ambience. But for friendly staff and VERY good food, make a visit! Noticed a lot of locals, which is always a good sign.
