“Easy carryout in downtown Aurora”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We were at an all day event at the Paramount Theater in downtown Aurora and had two meal times to consider. Didn't want to do the standard fast food for both meals. Happy to see this mom and pop Mexican restaurant around the corner from the theater. Completely authentic Mexican food for sit down or carryout. We kept it simple and just had a steak taco and a pork/al pastor taco. Both were delicious and the salsas quite flavorful. Prices are very reasonable. Lots of families in the dining room and all of the food on the tables looked delicious. We would definitely return!

“Lovin' this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We are loving this place, and last night, bringing four "new" people, we're even more in love . .. While the place wasn't full, one poor, but very efficient wait person, had to handle everyone as other employees had called in sick. She did an amazing job as well as the chef, who got food out promptly, efficiently, tasty and attractive. We love the food here, have never had a bad experience . . and it's a great bang for the buck! Our guests were very impressed, and we all plan to return.

“Very authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

I liked this restaurant. The food was good, and the waitress was friendly. They offer more than just Mexican cuisine. They even had an ice cream bar. I will go back again.
