The portions are very large here. The food is very good. Not too spicy. The people were very friendly.

I really only wanted to use the restroom. I always know you need to buy something if you use a restaurant's restroom. I walked up to the counter and looked at their menu. I ordered one of their burritos (chicken) and a diet coke. They brought it to my table. First I stared at it because it was huge (if... More

We ended up here when our regular spot for Mexican food in town was closed. The food was fantastic, the restaurant friendly and fast. We'll go back, it looks like we found a new "first choice".

We stopped by twice on a MTB tour here last weekend. The food is awesome, and service quick. Highly recommend the molcajete - spicy, but very flavorful - and any of the tortas - we had the beef and veggie, and they were awesome. We came back the second night after we had a not so good experience at River... More

Best Mexican restaurant in Truckee. The food is fresh, delicious and a friendly staff. Also, it's inexpensive and you get big portions with your meal

This is a good family restaurant. The portions are generous. We were a group of six, everyone ordered something different and we all enjoyed our meal.

This "hole in the wall" never disappoints and other "Mexican food" restaurants down the block pale in comparison. From the humble but authentic single soft tacos to the monster Molcajete sizzling multi-meat/shrimp extravaganza - there's something for every taste and budget. Good Kids menu. Seating can be limited at peak times. Sister restaurant in Reno is bigger and just as... More

We enjoyed the nachos, enchiladas suizas, tacos, and chicken quesadilla. The service is good and prompt. The staff is friendly and helpful. The place is clean and busy! This is a locals spot. The place is tucked in the back corner of the 7-11 shopping center. My husband doesn't like to go there for one reason- fluorescent lights. He doesn't... More
