Best fish tacos I've ever had and I've had a lot of fish tacos! Shrimp tacos were equally amazing...very large shrimps and perfectly cooked.

Nothing special on the outside nor the inside and AC was having a tough day. But the food was really legit authentic Mexican food. Large flavorful portions and a nice staff.

My experience with the Al Pastor and fish tacos was great. The al pastor was perfectly cooked, crispy with a little pineapple! Even on Sunday night there was a line of customers so long they were coming out the door. The word must be out that this is one of the best Mexican food spots around!

We had a large selection of tacos. Most of the components were excellent. However, the salsa which is the soul of Mexican food lacked that zing of freshness that distinguishes the great salsa. Otherwise great authentic food with friendly service.

We went during lunch. The place was full. You place your order at the counter and they bring it to your table. You fill your drink (they use Styrofoam cups), get your salsa and select the table. We ordered enchiladas and the shrimp botano. Neither was good. Plus, the food was lukewarm and the shrimp was tough from being overcooked.... More

And all I can say is wow! It was fantastic! I had the shrimp cocktail, it had about a dozen shrimp in it! It was so delicious! Also had the shrimp tostado it was just as wonderful. The nachos are also amazing! A must try!

Excellent menu! Even though the building is nothing to speak of, what comes out of the kitchen is superb! Try the shrimp botana and jamaica! Super fast service! Bilingual!

Good cheap eats. My favorite is the Asada Super Burrito @$5.35 and your stuffed for the day. Be prepared to wait, as this place is always packed. We usually just get our food to go unless we get lucky and grab a table.

Intense family atmosphere: a small neighborhood place with great authentic food. I had the shrimp. It was messy and delicious.

The staff are friendly and the portions are big, but no flavour really stood out. The salad was fresh but why no taste to the meat and cheese?

Thank Olaf E
