“A Real Find”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

This is a little Mexican restaurant running out of a bakery. The food is absolutely authentic Mexican. The Tortas are to die for!

It is a husband and wife operation. They prepare everything and serve it to you with pride. Anytime a cook hands you their food and looks you in the eye, you are in for some great eating. This place follows that rule.

“Great food in an unsuspecting place”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is a small restaurant located in a strip mall just off of Route 1 in Alexandria, VA. I read a review and decided to try it. I had the chips and guacamole along with a pork burrito and beverage. It was very good and plenty of food, but it was almost $18, and that is a bit high in my opinion. They had a nearly unlimited supply of tasty looking pastries, but I didn't have enough room to try any of them. I do plan on going back to try some.

“Great "hole-in-the-wall" mexican place”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

I say hole int eh wall only because its a little hard to find and from the outside looks like it'd be sloppy. But the inside is very neat and the staff is friendly and the food is authentic!
