Love their food. Small business. Owner often works at location. Think that's important for a businesses success. Shows they care enough to be involved. Can be busy but worth the wait.

This is the onnly place I love to go to for mexican food, however you have to spend a bit of money to get the good carne asada... and the other downfall is they only take cash.

We usually go to a competitor, but they have moved. We were surprised to find that the food was much better than we had remembered. Food is really great....very authentic. Prices are a tiny bit higher than the competitor....but food is great. Friendly service and really fast!!! I highly recommend...!!!

My fiancé and I tried the carne asada and carnitas burritos, and we were both amazed how tasty the meat was. Sopes are very good as well, they taste homemade (yes! just like my moms home cooking). Give this place a try, you won't be disappointed.

Burrito was a little small and didnt have enough meat. Clean place though and food was good. This place is better than the other taco shops in hemet, like la cabana. Its even better than santanas. Will be back to try other menu items..
