I am always happy to find horchata on the menu! This horchata is well worth the $2.00. I couldn't finish the large serving with my meal, so I got a to-go cup for the remainder. However, the carne asada was not very well seasoned. We asked for salsa and that helped a lot. The portions were huge...come with a big... More

Depending on what each of us ate, we either really liked it or was disappointed. Living out of the country, we were anxious to have a great Mexican dinner. We were disappointed to find out that even though it was not very late in the evening, several of the Mexican Restaurants had already closed. One that was open had an... More

The food here is very bland lacking flavor and I hate to say it but Taco Bell is better. Soem of the locals say they love it.

Agree with another review. Meat not seasoned while cooking really lacking in flavor. I had the fried taco with shredded beef. It could have been a hit with seasoning and a more thorough job of shredding the meat. Another surprise was the lack of sauce on the enchilada. And again insufficient seasoning. The portion size is huge. Staff super.

Interesting to find such a good Mexican restaurant in this coastal town. It is very casual and reasonably priced. The beans are wonderful and taste like the beans you would find in the valley or southern CA. The food comes hot and is delivered to your table. Not fancy but good food.

We decided to try this little place after so many people talked about the huge portion sizes, low prices, and great food. So, on a hungry day we tried it out. My husband ordered the super burrito everyone seems to rave about, but it was far less than "super" to be fair. I had a carne asada burrito that was... More

Food was good. Order at counter and food delivered to table. Sterile atmosphere otherwise. Inexpensive. Can easily be confused with another Mexico restaurant near by.

I would give them an Excellent rating if they seasoned their meat while cooking. It definitely has to have sauce added before eating. Their super burrito is huge and tasty but you cannot find better fried tacos anywhere! This is not a big place but you can have seating and they will bring you your order.

It's usually the none fancy restaurants that have the REAL Mexican food! Every time we come to Crescent city we have to stop at least once to get a couple tacos! The tacos are actually a good size, almost like 3 small tacos combined. The tortilla I believe is freshly made there (not sure) but it test home made. The... More
