We are very fortunate to have such a find in Fredericksburg. They serve the best salsa around, using fresh ingredients for just the right tang. Soups are fabulous, especially the tortilla soup with fresh avocado, surprise bites of yummy cheese and lots of chicken. Whether ordering green chili enchiladas, papusas or fish tacos, you won't be disappointed with this town... More

Mexican food is usually too heavy but not this place. I had the vegetable taco salad and it was delicious. The guacamole was light and tasty and the hubs had shrimp enchiladas that he really liked. There adult beverage list is pretty good, the people are friendly and service is great. Definitely recommend Vegetarian friendly. Not good for kids

Papusas were great as well as the steak tacos. Nice place to go for lunch. A little wait but it's worth it.

We had heard a lot about this place so we stopped in for a quick lunch. My wife had soup and two soft tacos and I had a chicken chimichanga. Everything was good - but nothing to really write home about. Service was good and fairly quick despite the fact that they were very busy. I wasn't overly enthralled with... More

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch while walking the old city historical/shopping district. The night before while walking by a couple entering told us how much they liked the place. At 1:15 pm on a Saturday the place was packed. Someone offered us their table and took the table outside. We had the soup and taco combo... More

A locals favorite, I don't get it... long wait, less than a half dozen tables, average to poor food.

This little hole-in-wall place is a real gem. I love all of the appetizers, especially the pupusas. The place has an authentic feel and flavor, and the specials are usually a good choice!
