I drive by this place at least once a week and by word of mouth it was recommended to me. What a gem. The store is small and the restaurant is in the back. No frills, just authentic Mexican food. I wish I would have...stopped sooner. We were greeted by 3 people as we went in and greeted when we sat down to order our To-Go food. You can also sit in the small restaurant if you would like. I ordered 2 Tacos Al Pastor ($2.35 each or $1.99 on Tuesdays. It was tender, juicy and marinated well. They prepare and cook the food directly in front of you and the tortillas are freshly made per order. Tender and juicy with a ziploc bag of a cup of pico de gallo with fresh limes included for the tacos. My sister ordered the Chicken Flautas. Six of them (about 1 inch by 5 inches long). It came with Cotija cheese on top, not parmesan as mentioned earlier in a review. It came with a simple salad with tomato, onion and avocado. They served the flautas with a red salsa and a green salsa. We topped it off by sharing a 32 oz. Horchata fresca ($3.29) which tasted like fresh rice pudding but in a drink style. Que rica. How delicious. This is located in a strip mall on a busy street. It is not a scary area. This is not a typical mexican chain type of food. It is authentic and made in front of you so prepare yourself to wait while they prepare it fresh for you. This is not a fast food restaurant that is frozen and then served. It is fresh each and every time. You will not regret coming here. It is well worth it. Coming from New York and New Jersey, this is a typical mom and pop authentic Mexican restaurant. You will feel the Mexican culture from the language to the music playing in the background to the delicious food. Very small but very good. Enjoy!!!More

The crowd next door made us decide not to eat there. We did get to go. A burrito. We have had better. Overall the juice not worth the squeeze. A little too dangerous for my tastes. The actual establishment was ok; however I did not...feel safe there with my family.More
