Wow. Fantastic. So the place is small, consisting of 3 tables and a bar to sit at. Order at the counter after looking over their menu hanging above your head. Make sure to look at the specials. I had the chilaquiles (no eggs on this...More

This is our go to place for tacos and quesadillas. Their food is cheap and yummy and real. We've tried every taqueria around and always go back to this one. Downside is they only accept cash and their customer service sucks. No smiles, not helpful....More

I had to pop in here to try this place and thankful I did. My only complain is the minimal English that got me overcharged! The pulled chicken and steak are outstanding. The tacos and sopas may be the best I have ever had to...More

we had carnitas, chicken and pulled pork (don't remember the Mexican name for it) tacos and the best were the carnita tacos. They were good but not great. I was expecting great. :(

Like the other reviewers have already stated: this place is a hole-in-the-wall, the ladies taking your order and getting your food are nice (but are also interested in the Mexican Soap Operas blaring on the T.V.), it's cash only, and it's good. You can NOT...More

This hole-in-the-wall, authentic Mexican restaurant, is all about the food. It's street-food and it's so home-made that you would think you are eating on the beach in Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) in Mexico, south of Tucson. There is absolutely no atmosphere (smiles) and there shouldn't...More

I decided to stop in on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. This small little restaurant in Clearwater is a hidden jewel of awesome Mexican food. The tortillas are made fresh all during the day. The dish I had was both tasty and just the right...More
