“I always go back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

It's not every taco shop that's been open for 20 years & the owner is always behind the counter. I like that you can sit on the street & watch CB life while eating an awesome carne asada burrito in beachwear. It's full of locals off season & everyone in the summer.

“Fast Mexican and soft serve too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

In the middle of Carlsbad Village, great Mexican at a very informal location. We had carne asada burrito and taquitos. My friend swears by the shrimp quesadilla. And after dinner there is soft serve ice cream. They have their own parking lot.

“adaquate at best.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Only average. Family owned a plus. Got it on a bad day, I guess. I would return again. For the price, adaquate.

Best Mexican food I have ever eaten! Cheap, friendly staff, awesome dive environment. Great tacos, great taquitos, and don't forget a soft serve for dessert!

“Horrible 'Mexican' food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Really awful food. My fish taco was a frozen fish filet that was deep fried to a brick like crisp. The carne asada was inedible. Everything was gross. Only good thing was the soft serve ice cream. Don't eat here.
