“A delicious Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

This is a restaurant that is a popular place for locals. The menu has a nice variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner choices. I love the chicken asada. It comes with 1/2 chicken and is grilled to perfection. It comes with beans, Mexican rice, and a small salad. There is a salsa bar with many choices of salsa, pico de gallo and jalapeños.
The restaurant is almost always busy but you can call ahead for takeout which usually takes about 20 minutes. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like an authentic Mexican restaurant with good prices.

“Good tasting, affordable mexican food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

In an area surrounded by food businesses this place seems to maintain a busy reputation. I was a little suprised that they had those devices that beep when your order was ready.

Not being from this area I thought I'd try a couple of things, I ordered off there lunch special which has like 4 choices costing about $4 each. I ordered the Taco special and the Quesadilla Special. They have a pretty large menu, service was a little on the slow side but they were pretty busy so I won't complain too much. They also have a salsa bar which is always nice.

Other than the pinto beans which seemed overcooked to the point of tasting more like a sauce, the food was good and went down a treat.

If you're in this area and on a budget I would recommend this place. I tried other places in the area which are better but be prepared to pay at least $10 for lunch.

“A great casual place for quick Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2009

I went to this restaurant a couple of times for both breakfast and dinner, since it was a walking distance from my hotel. The food is great and affordable. The staff is always polite and they bring the food to your table. You do save money on tips, since you pay up front at the counter, but be nice and drop some money in the tip jar. The staff deserves it. You can sit outside in the protected patio and enjoy the weather (or the walk by traffic on Olympic Blvd.). I had the steak/shrimp dinner plate and for around $10, it is a steal. You won't leave hungry, and you'll be back for more.
