Got the burrito and it was great. Would do that again. One can feed two. Chips ok, salsa ok. Cold Mexican beer. Tacos a little oily. Wouldn't do that again. Shop next door at the American Cancer Society shop.

This place has been a favorite of mine for years! Admittedly, I eat the same thing everytime...the Blackened Chicken Tacos. So yummy! Chips and salsa are good and fresh. This place is inexpensive, tucked away as a locals favorite.

Delicious mexican food. The restaurant is small and you have to order at the cashier and bring your number to the table for food to be delivered. This place is no-frills, but by far the best Mexican food I have had so far in the area!! This is my new go-to mexican food place!!!

I really enjoy the carnes asada plate. The sauce on the included cheese enchilada is very fresh and tasty. I also enjoy their chicken dishes. Chips & Salsa are freshly made. No wonder it's been voted Monterey County's best taqueria the last 2 years.

Read about it on YELP and stopped in for a lite snack. We both had the street tacos (steak, shrimp), which were huge! Everything is fresh and prepared to order. The steak and shrimp were grilled, but overall the tacos lacked real flavor. Their salsa is wonderful and that helped to spice up the tacos a little.

Bottomline, the food is okay but don't believe the hype if you're really into good mexican food.
