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

In general, the food is average rate, some tacos are so much fatty. But is better than travel to Mexico to taste some real Mexican food.

Passed by Florida City and was starving, found this location easily. I ate 4 Tacos, all were pretty good just not alot of options to add to the Tacos for someone who doesn't like them spicy. Also... if you have credit card, you need to spend more then 10$

Good fresh food at a nice price. Sure tasted good after a long day of Diving. Thank you! The waitress was helpful and put up with my bizarre father in law without batting an eye.

This place is really good! I stopped by to grab a quick lunch and I am definitely coming back with my family. It's a small little place with a little homie feeling to it. I ate chicken tacos, guacamole and the ceviche and everything was really good. The chicken is shredded with Mexican cheese and the ceviche is only fish... More
