Gross, gross, gross.... It's in an old gas station and it tastes like it. I gave it a second try thinking the first time was just a coincidence, but the second time was worse.

We've been to this establishment so many times. It's awesome authentic Mexican torta and taco dishes. The only problem is if you want an order to go they only speak Spanish but manage some English which is no biggie especially if you're accustomed to speaking Spanish. Either way, they get your order correct and it's such good food don't ever... More

Stopped there for a bite to eat on the way home during lunch hour. Sandwiches were ok, service was ok. Expected the bread to be Mexican bolillo, it was some kind of soft roll which was disappointing.

Every Time I Crave A Torta I Go Here. The Food Is Excellent And Always Fresh. Call Ahead So When You get There Your Food Is Ready. My Favorite is The Carne Asada W/ Avocado

The service is great, kind people and no to mention the food. its probably the best mexican food you can get here in las cruces. Fast, delicious, succulent. everything is made when you order and their burritos are huge, meat is tender enough, taste is awsome.

Serving a variety of large single or combination tortas at a very good (read cheap) price. The rolls are large and soft and the shredded beef is excellent. Also have Mexican plates with burritos and tacos and seafood cocktails. Great place for a sandwich.
