Love this spot; best Mexican food for miles around, and I go way out of my way to eat here. Try the Alambres, you'll take half home.

My boyfriend ate here a few years ago when he was doing some work in Homestead. Raved about the salsa/toppings bar. We were coming back from a trip to the Everglades and he was dead set on finding it again. Don't let its location adjacent to a gas station deter you, it is delicious. A simple menu with fantastic food.

We stopped at Robert's Is Here and had the shakes and fresh produce and needed something else and checked this place out and it was great, people friendly and the price was right! #livelifelocal

We stopped there on our way back from the keys. Tacos were excellent. Don't expect a fancy restaurant. It's a whole in a wall BUT tacos and salsas are soooo good. The aguas frescas are great. Horchata was really really good. The tacos de lengua (tongue tacos) were very flavorful. It's an experience for sure

This little place (seriously) in a strip mall is definitely a hidden gem. With only 15-20 tables, perhaps, it's easy to miss. But don't miss it!! Absolutely the best ceviche and enchiladas ever, and the tacos were equally good. We were the only non-Latinos in the place, which was my first clue that it would probably be great. They only...

Food was overall very good, but eggs for huevos rancheros were overcooked (as they were everywhere in Florida I tried as compared to New Mexico). Salsa bar was varied and tasty. Descent prices, limited seating, mildly friendly service, and average efficiency.

The decor could be Mexico but its Florida City, the food tastes like you could be in Mexico. No you are in Florida City, the staff is Mexican and friendly. I had three fish tacos, that were good; and brown water sold as ice tea.

We have been here twice already and it's always great, fast, fresh, and cheap! No need to dress up. Their "lengua" (beef tongue) is pretty amazing. Best one I've tried in US
