I know it sounds odd, but if you're in the mood for some tasty tongue taco, stop by this place. My kids loved the fried plantains and quesadillas. I was ambivalent about the whole fried fish since it was a bit dry. But everything else, including the torta sandwich was delicious! And at the end, the kind waitress has a... More

The food here is the real deal. Good Mexican with good flavor and nice portions. The service and the setting aren't bad just a bit strange. It feels like you are in a store or a gas station. So as long as you like funky off the norm it is a great find.

This is a little place with wonderful, true-to-life Mexican food! They also have a nice store, where you can buy authentic Mexican food to take home. Love it!

What a delicious meal! The lunch specials were reasonable, and there was plenty of food... I recommend the chicken enchiladas!

This is one of my favorites in Lancaster County. Great food at great prices. Nothing fancy in atmosphere, but we were just there on the evening of 3-18-16, and the place was packed! You can leave the better know places, and just come here once a week!

If your looking for authentic Mexican food, this place has it! Love the corn tortillas that come with most of the platters. Nice size portions. Leave room for dessert, the Fried Ice Cream is amazing!

It outside (and interior) of this restaurant might make you decide to go elsewhere if you have never been there, but the food is excellent. Its a gem hidden inside an ugly building. If you want authentic delicious homemade Mexican food this is the place. Give it a try you won't be sorry!!!
