I enjoyed the food at this family owned business! I tried the rolled tacos special and it was delicious with three different taco meats. $5.99 for each plate. I definitely will be back this trip to try more items.

I’ve had the carne asada burrito and the rolled tacos. For me it’s all about the meat and the guacamole. Theirs is one of the best in Ramona. Service is quick and good. Never an issue. Plenty of chips and salsa too.
