This place is tiny with very poor seating. The food is quite good. I live in town and forget about it sometimes it's so small. I enjoy the food everytime though. The couple who run the place are very friendly and charm of the charm. It's like sitting in a friends kitchen while they coom for you. Like right there next to you, becsuse that is pretty much what is happening.

This is the definition of 'hole in the wall'. If you blink you will miss it! its a small little eatery. If you get there at the wrong time you wont be able to eat there but you will have to take it to go. Food is served on regular dishes, not paper plates or styrofome. When you look at the menu prices it can seem steep, but you get what you pay for. Very big portions!! And my husband thinks its the most authentic mexican food in town. (he is hispanic) Friendly service!! The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is because of the seating. I wish it was a bit bigger!

I loves the vegetarian special burrito here. I know it is not authentic Mexican food but it has some very intense and well balance favor. It is looks like a dive but the food is great.

I gave up on all Mexican restaurants in Paradise. They are more or less terrible. Except for this small place which is indeed a "hole in the wall" and does not look very pretty. But the food is good. Authentic? Yes, as far as you can expect in a small California town. I agree with the other reviewer: You should try the Burrito (best is the one with Carne Asada), it's enough for two and tastes great. Ask for their hot sauce.

This hole-in-the-wall place is one of the best authentic mexican restaurants in the area. It's right next door to a larger and very ordinary mexican restaurant here in Paradise. Not much atmosphere or room to spread out, but great food!
