So Delicious! Found this restaurant on a Google search and it was rated highly and it did not disappoint. It was crowded for a weeknight and our order took a little longer but well worth it! They serve salsa and chips while you wait with...two different salsas. Chips are thick so be careful not to break your teeth. The food was so delicious and fresh. Too bad I didn’t have time to go back as I was craving it after the first visit.More

A great place to order mexican food. every dish I've tried has been excellent. The burritos, tacos, fajitas, doesn't matter what I've ordered always satisfied me in quality and quantity. The service is friendly and the table chips come with two hot sauces.

If you’re a fan of Mexican cuisine, you’ll be elated by this cozy restaurant tucked in the corner of a small shopping center. The vibrant, atmosphere oozes w/bright colors, & lively music. An enthusiastic, warm welcome and swift service were enhanced by our Happy Hour...beverages—refreshing margarita made w/agave wine, & and frosty draft beer for my husband. Complimentary from-scratch tortilla chips soon appeared w/red & green sauces for dipping. Our dinner? Generous servings of sumptuous, fresh-from-the-kitchen Mexican dishes from a multi-layered bean dip to savory chicken mole & chili rellenos. Yum! Great value too! Can you say leftovers?!More

Not your typical Tex-Mex. The owners are from central Mexico. The menu selection is good, portions are ample, and the food is tasty. The only downside is that there are too many tables jammed into the restaurant, and it is impossible to sit back-to-back against...another table. They get very busy, and appear to have a Mexican/Hispanic clientele.More

If you’re craving Mexican dishes, you’ll have a lot to choose from here. My husband raved about the fajitas and the huge chile relleno was so filling I didn’t have room for the rice and beans. Homemade chips and salsa. Only complaint is that they...don’t have a liquor license, so wine margaritas and several beers on tap to choose from. Cheerful service. Outdoor tables are dog-friendly.More

We were in a bit of a rush and stopped in for a quick lunch. The birria tacos came out quickly and were really very good. Service was fast. Would definitely go there again.

This restaurant specializes in food from Central Mexico sometimes called "colonial". They are quite busy but too much. The servers are good. There is not too long a wait for service or the food. The menu has great classics including Mole Poblano, tacos, carnitas, mexican...steak, etc. One thing that is really fantastic is the menudo which they make on Saturdays and Sundays. Honestly it is the best I have had in the USA. The owner is from Morelia, Michoacan and highly motivated to make great meals.More

We stopped for lunch while in the area based on Trip Advisor reviews and proximity to our appointment. The food portions were very large, taste was delicious and the prices were extremely reasonable. Service was quick and friendly even though they were just about full....We'd look forward to stopping in again the next time we're in the area.More

Good Authentic Mexican. Tacos were a little on the small, but tasted very fresh. The star was their chicken soup! So fresh and delicious with big chunks of white meat chicken, lots of fresh veggies and a rich delicious broth. I highly recommend the soup!!

If you're looking for authentic Mexican food (especially in Jupiter, FL), this is your place. They did a FANTASTIC job, even for takeout, even during COVID. The portions were large and not expensive. The quality and flavor of the food was robust and what it...should be...El Fogoncito knocked it out of the park. We ordered: - Calamari (REALLY good, and solid spicy peppers in as well) - Enchiladas Verdes (didn't come with rice and beans so ordered some) - Special Chicken Burrito (filled with all the good stuff) - Chicken Fajitas Also, all wait staff wore face coverings and gloves. Inside seating only had patrons not wearing masks but distance between parties.More

Wow! This little Mexican restaurant tucked away in random plaza is a HIDDEN GEM!! The chips are flavorful, crisp, and wonderfully made (homemade). They come with two salsas, a verde and a sweeter red that had a delicate aftertaste. For lunch, my wife and I...split the Molcajete Azteca with corn tortillas. The homemade tortillas were mouthwateringly delicious, but the authentic dish with CACTUS was the star of the show. Words cannot truly describe this meal. I can only say, if you only come here once, THIS is the meal to get.More
