On fifth, just off Monterey, next to Gourmet Alley, this is a very busy restaurant for both sit-down and take out. Authentic Michoacan cooking, the flavors are sublime, can't go wrong here.

One of the authentic Mexican restaurants in Gilroy, with a very vibrant and local customer base. The choices and prices are terrific and the food always tasty. Come for the food, not the ambiance.

This was the best of the three restaurants we tried in Gilroy! The first place we went was too expensive. The second, we waited for an hour without getting any food. Finally, we came here after 9:00 pm. We were helped right away, given chips,...More

Stopped here on the way to San Francisco. It was really fresh and tasty. It was clean, friendly and fast. I had the Relleno which was soooo good. Husband had beef burrito and he enjoyed that. Cost us $14 all up. Good value
