We love to go there for breakfast. My wife loves Huevos Rancheros, and we are on a constant lookout for great places to get it. This place is so good that we keep going there year after year.

Very good, lots of food. Friendly. Will return. The Carnitas was the special and very good. Don't let the building fool you.

I used to go there frequently for lunch with a salesman and it was consistently good. It's always busy at lunch. The breakfast is good too. Try the machaca; it's good stuff.

This is a very busy local restaurant in Santa Maria. The food is good and is reasonably priced. As a fan of non spicy food, what I order is not spicy and very tasty. Since it is a family restaurant it can get loud. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have eaten there at all meal times and it... More

We went for Birria de Chivo but had to settle for de Res because they only served on Sat and Sun early. Strange for us. They did go out of their way to give us hand made torrillas. Also ordered shrimp enchiladas which were good. It was tasty and worth the $ Service was a little off and slow but... More

First of all, the table we were seated at was dirty, so we asked to be moved. The food had absolutely no flavor I was very disappointed.

This place is not fancy or impressive to look at but the food is good. The prices are super cheap and you get large portions so the taste and cost outweigh the cheesy decor. One of the few Mexican restaurants in Santa Maria that actually has decent food.

After reading the glowing reviews, we were very disappointed with the food here. The place was clean, and the service was good. However, we ordered margaritas, not knowing the restaurant is not licensed for spirits, so we got a concoction of fruit juice with sparkling wine. The food itself was very bland. We come from Los Angeles County where there... More
