No joke, without a doubt, the best Mexican food I've ever eaten in VN. I have been living here for several years and have always been disappointed with what people call "Mexican food" here. This is the real deal. Chips and salsa are to die for, freshly made on the spot, and the salsa has just the right amount of kick with cilantro, garlic, tomato and chili peppers. SO good. The quasadillas, breakfast burritos, and tostadas are also amazing. BUT A MUST try are the fish tacos. Just like what you'll get in Baja, Mexico. Beer battered and fried fish on a small soft tortilla with cheese, cilantro, salsa, cabbage, and guacamole. This place is a must try if you're in Nha Trang.

Well it's the "Lil" shack, literally, a small counter on the main street in Nha trang. BUt the "Small" finishes there.

The Menu is extensive, the dishes are authentic, prepared in front of you across the glass, the staff oh so Polite, guacamole just perfect. Serving time is under 4/5 minutes for most dishes!

Had one of the burritos here.

GO here for authentic, one of its kind Mexican joint in Nha Trang.

I'll keep coming back!

It can be hot in Nha trang during the day time, i like this place more on a cooler evening post Sun Down.

Mexican food was a nice change. Had a beef and bean burrito served with some sour cream, guacamole and salsa. The staff were great and they have a variety of Mexican foods to try.

WOW! Finally someone who knows how to make a breakfast burrito.

The owner is from Arizona so it gives you that southwest US mexican taste.

I had the bacon, egg and bean and my girlfriend had the chorizo. They use refried beans which is another added bonus. We went back several times while in Nha Trang.

Do yourself a favour and go!

I live in California right next to the Mexican boarder so I've been eating authentic Mexican food all my life. This was the best bean&cheese burrito I've had in Asia (been trying to find decent Mexican in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, etc for months) The beans tasted a bit like they have black pepper in them, but other than that its classic good Mexican food. Fish tacos were fresh and very tasty. Prices are very low, I'll be hitting this place up again very soon!

I think the people who left negative reviews were expecting Taco Bell, lol.
