My go to place to have Mexican food. My favorites are the pastor tacos. When you visit you will see that the local Mexican people eat there, in a test that the food is authentic and very reasonable.

The inside is lovely. The food was much more than we had hoped for. Each one of us had a different dish and we all loved all of them. Not one of us wish that we had not gotten what we had. The drinks were strong and we did not try for a second round.

Great food at a reasonable price. We absolutely loved our tacos. I can't wait to go back and try one of their absolutely massive burritos that seemed to be incredibly popular.

We've been here a few times over 15 years and it always delivers great food. The cost is very reasonable and the ingredients always very fresh. Not to be missed.

Many locals eat here. They have classic menu items, well-made and quickly produced. The building they are in was the home of the Greyhound Bus Depot. For so many years that was a steady sure route into Santa Rosa. I like eating here with the locals and enjoying the view of the village, out the windows. However, I think they... More
