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

The place is not fancy, the location may not be great either, but the food was really good, cheap and the service was excellent. This is the kind of places we love visiting while we are travelling, small hidden gems were you can find mainly locals.

We found this place by looking for a Mexican restaurant while travelling. It is off of the main path by a few blocks, but worth the detour. We weren't sure of the place at first - it shares a building with a gas station - but once inside all was ok. The restaurant is very clean and well kept and... More

Don't let the fact that this is next to a gas station fool you. Very good authentic Mexican food at a reasonable price. With a group of three two of us had the chili relleno and one of us a steak, sausage, pepper and cheese dish with tortillas. All of the food was delicious and the portions were very ample.... More

After reading the rave reviews of this place, especially about the tacos, I was very excited to try for myself. I personally do not care much about appearances or service, it's all about the food. I was so disappointed when the food arrived! I can honestly say it was one of the worst meals I've ever eaten. The meat had... More
