Have been coming here for years. This family run eatery is always a highlight on each visit to the Palm Springs area. Every item on the menu is delicious. Full bar too.

We found this gem last year. It's off the beaten path but every time we go, there is a line for lunch. It is super! Angel the owner comes by every table to check on you. Best chili rellano I have ever had. You will leave extremely full and happy!

The food is consistently good, lots of chips and salsa and the margaritas are excellent. Prices are good and portions often enough to take some home.

We had been wanting to try this restaurant for quite a while but never did until recently and now we wonder why it took us so long. What appears to be a Taco Shop from the street is only part of the establishment. Once inside the front door, we discovered a full service restaurant with every table occupied. Many customers...

The staff and food here are absolutely fantastic! Very kind and caring family run restaurant still using abuelas recipes from Guatalajara. They make all their food and sauces from scratch. Tons of love put into the food. Top notch... No joke. I'm going again and again and again until I exhaust their menu... very impressed!
