This was a second visit and the relanos we each had were way undercooked. The skin was very tough and was very hard to cut. Tacos were very good!

The first time I went here I was so impressed. I really like baked goods so it was hard to choose between all the pastries. I got a pastry and a hot chocolate ( champurado )

We had heard about this restaurant from others and it was a gem. We had the chili relleno, a taco and a cheese enchilada. All tasted very good and the relleno was huge! So far this is the best Mexican place between Corona and Lake Elsinore. We will be back again! $20 dinner for 2. Very affordable!

We have been going here for a long time. Even before the sons took over the bakery and turned it into the best Mexican place around. The calamari is outstanding and the burritos are great as is all the other offerings. Great staff and the chef comes out to be sure everything is great.
