The food can be a bit of a hit or miss deal, but they do serve the best Mexican food in town. The service is great, and you can't miss with the Fajita's. I especially like the Carne Asada and shrimp combo. The Tostadas are fabulous and the Tamal? Out of this world and made fresh. The Only reason I... More

I think if I had gone a little earlier the food would have been fresher. I ordered the Carne Asada plate and was highly disappointed. The beef was dried out, so I managed to get down one taco before calling it quits. The rice was served cold, but the beans, which were flavorful were nice and warm. I liked the... More

Best Mexican in town. Very authentic food. Their street tacos are my favorite. Although there isn't anything that I've ordered here that I haven't liked. The restaurant and the food truck are both great.

Google maps recommended this place to eat and so glad we decided to give it a try. The ladies that worked there were super nice. The food was super delicious, made me wish we lived here so we could eat there again. Definitely worth eating there! Great price and great food :)

I have been living in Mexico for the past year and the only thing that I missed was this place. They are personable and it's great food!

I love mexican food. I have eaten Mexican in Mexico, the South West US, Canada, Northwest US, and Tokyo! . So I feel that I have a pretty good take on quality for Mexican food. This place was the best I have had in the Northwest to date. It had the flavors of good authentic Mexican food. If you want... More

Great fajitas and chips. Salsa was the best. The atmosphere was fitting and the wait staff friendly.

I would say average Mexican food, small eating area, parking is bad, staff was very nice, carne steak dinner was bad, very tough meat, wife had a steak burrito that was excellent. If you want regular salsa don't go there, they serve a green tormatillo salsa that is blah, though chips are very good!
