Been coming here for years. Never disappointed. Great family run business, super prices and great food. Steamed pork burrito will satisfy energy the hungriest of appetites. Home made pico de gallo is the best.

I won't even talk about the food first, first I think u need to know how BOMB the green and red sauces are.... Now with that said, just about everything is amazing, and u better ask for some tripes or some cheek meat... That's where it's at.

The restaurant is covered in beautiful wall paintings and cracks just like the ones in Mexico. Large menu with great Mexican classics! Try the soups for a unique Mexican meal. Take out is... More

Don't let the building's rough exterior scare you away- the Mexican food you'll find inside is really good. It's set up like a "food truck" in a building. I've tried several things off their "food truck" style menu While I was on vacation in Shelton and everything I've tried so far was great. Prices are low and you get enough... More

This review is more directed at people driving through Shelton, perhaps on their way to the Hood Canal, as anyone who lives in Shelton already knows about how awesome this place is. The tacos are legit Mexico City style street tacos with corn tortillas, cilantro, dice onions and your choice of amazing meat: carnitas, carne asada, pollo. The ingredients are... More

They try. The prices are quite low. But sadly, the food is about 1.5 stars (and I am so sorry, but I don't know that the word star applies here). And I so hate giving a bad review. But I went there because it was convenient and other reviews suggested that it might be acceptable. So I write this to... More

I've seen the restaurant many times and the fruit for sale outside but never stopped. But tonight I wanted a Mexican takeout not Taco Bell and not one of the small restaurant groups, I looked at the reviews and gave it a try. I ordered tamale taco and then chelada with rice and beans. When I got home to eat... More
