It may not have been on par with the fish tacos I can get in LA, but what they lack in artisanal ingredients, they make up for in heart and with love for their establishment. In short, they try harder, as the old Avis commercials used to say. Gritty, but clean, and tasty.

We were visiting family in Indio and we were craving Mexican food... My Indio family members suggested this one, so we checked it out! We didn't have high expectations for it since there's a TON of Mexican restaurants in Indio, but OMG! Food was delicious! We had the enchiladas (amazing!), mom had chilles rellenos (even more amazing!) and my aunt... More

My family and I have eaten here a couple times and every time has been such a great experience. The food is always fresh and tasty and the people that work there care about what they do. You feel like family there. They even put cartoons on for my kids. I am always happy to go back there.

The burrito I had was greasy, greasier than the average carne asada burritos. The ceviche seemed to made with fish from a can, and it had broccoli in it. It was expensive for poor quality food. I thought it would be great, because there seemed to be many patrons. As it turned out, it appears to be busy because it... More

This is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that we've been to numerous times. We've eaten there while vacationing nearby and also when we were headed back home and just driving through. It's just off the interstate. The food is awesome and the staff is super friendly. You'll wish you had this restaurant down the street from your house!
