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!

We ordered food to take out. We got quick friendly service. The wait for our order was 15 minutes and they were pretty busy. We ordered chicken and steak quesadillas, a steak burrito, and sides of queso and guacamole. We were told the queso and guacamole were 8 oz containers and when we arrived home they were only 4 oz....

I really like this place. My husband and I have been regulars here for years. Service is always great and the authentic Mexican food is always delicious! The only issue I ever had here was once my Black Bean Soup was cold, but it was taken off the bill with no problem. A quaint little place in an excellent location.... More

The food is fresh and vibrant with so many wonderful flavors. The soups are southern Mexican/Latin American. The menu has more than just soup and tacos. The chips are fabulous. Ask for the green salsa.

We purposely stopped for one night in Fredericksburg just so we could eat at this restaurant! We were lucky enough to discover this spot when we were passing through 4 years ago, and loved it! We were happy to find it is just as good as it was the first time we tried it! My husband enjoyed a steak chimichanga,... More

This is not remotely Tex-Mex; the food reminded me of the late great Las Manitas in Austin. The shrimp and veggie tacos were both outstanding and the bottled Mexican beer was served at a good temperature. Good chips and salsa. Rushed but pleasant service. If I lived near Fredericksburg I would eat here often.

Having recently moved to the East Coast from Tucson, AZ, I'm always skeptical of Mexican food. This place was amazing! I had the carnitas tacos and ate way more than I should have because it was so good. Very authentic, including homemade tortillas! Great prices, too. Stop by while you're in town!

No question - this is a place to have a quick lunch. The service was great, the food to order. It is a small local place and well worth a visit for a quick bite. The portions were average (not huge) and for lunch that was perfect. I am sure I will be returning because the food and service was... More

I arrived expecting a cheap street food experience. What I got was a lesson on how good home cooked style Mexican food can be. I ordered the pozole to start and was given the absolute finest soup I have ever eaten. It was so good I took a pint home for my wife and I have returned to the restaurant... More
