“Great food but short of staff”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We were a group of 7 for dinner, the place was not that crowded but there was only one server for the entire restaurant which made service slow and we had to repeat things like more water, refill on chips, etc. I guess with one server they do need to make sure to not let the customers know that fact over and over. Not sure where management was. Anyways besides that, the food was very good and tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The place was very casual but still good food.

“A different type of Mexican food.”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

All the menu of Mexico but the use of mozzarella cheese gives different flavor. You will love it or not like it so much..

“Reasonably Priced Homestyle Mexican”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Straight forward no nonsince homestyle mexican food at reasonable prices, $2 taco's, burritos start at $5.50, the wet burrito's are excellent at $6.99, I also luv the carne asada fries. This is a newer restaurant on Ski Run Blvd where Scusa used to be, but it is owned by the same family that runs Super Burrito at stateline, that's been a tahoe favorite for like 20years, so they know what there doing, good, fast, reasonably priced.
