The combination plates are huge! When you walk in someone's grandmother is making fresh tortilla's and hands you one...a little too spicy for me but the bite I had was incredible before the heat hit :-) Virgin Pina Colada was awesome.

There are multiple locations. I prefer the location in downtown Everett. Greeted at the door with freshly made tortillas while waiting to be seated. Particularly liked the shrimp burrito.

This is the best Mexican restaurant in downtown Everett. They give you a tasty salsa and a warm bean dip right off the bat. On some evenings a woman is making yummy little tortilla rollups that are free but leave her a tip...

Genuine good food here from the start to the finish. The Chimichanga was one of the best since San Diego and Mexico. The homemade Chorizo is the best I have found in Washington state so far. The Burrito was very good but was not as...More
