Had several great meals during our stay in Palm Springs. Great jukebox with all your Latin favourites. Good portions with ice cold horchatas and cervezas.

“Inexpensive and authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

The restaurant itself may not look like much, but the food was authentic and tasty and the service was prompt. I actually wished we had discovered this place earlier in our trip, because we probably would have eaten there many more times!

“Authentic Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

A Wednesday evening and the place was still busy. What's remarkable about that? Well for starters, it isn't among restaurants, it's off the beaten track and it's a locals hangout primarily for lunches among the working class. The food here is real authentic Mexican food served at wooden tables and benches or booths colorfully painted with bright Mexican colors and the floor is concrete. Nothing fancy here and the prices reflect it...low overhead and low prices. The margaritas are served in HEAVY glass "bowls" and are good, the food is good and the service is good. Don't be intimidated to go, even though the neighborhood is light industrial and off the beaten track, you'll enjoy a good meal whether lunch or dinner.

“Authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Not only is this a great small authentic Mexican cafe/restaurant, the prices are amazingly great. If you like tacos like they make in the old country, this is the place for you. Really amazing and you can tell how good it is my the clientele.

“Excellent food! Worth seeking out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

We ate here based upon Yelp reviews and we loved it. It's all about the food here. Nothing fancy, just authentic and tasty Mexican food.

I had tacos. So many tacos. I've tried all but the last 3-4 on their menu. I'm not a fan of menudo or tongue, so I stopped there. My daughter had a torta that was amazing. So delicious. My younger two shared chicken enchiladas and we all agreed the sauce was excellent.

It's a clean place, friendly service, seek it out if you're in town!
