Large portions great food and atmosphere like a family gathering. Space is limited however. This is the best food in town and better than what I have had in Mexico.

The food here is incredible. The best Mexican food. It is best to be here during the day. When the sun goes down, terrible neighborhood.

I love this place, they have great food and cool painting's to look at while you are waiting for your food :-) This is a huge hole in the wall (meaning it's big, comfy and has good food) in downtown Stockton.

been going here since i was a kid. aside from my mothers home cooking, it is THE standard, the very HIGH standard which i judge ANY restaurant regardless if its italian or mexican, or asian cuisine!
dinners are basically $10 a plate. and the portions are WOW!!! im a big man and i eat big and yeah...these dinners will fill you! the chicken they use is mostly white meat, with a few pieces of dark meat to add flavor and moisture...their 'red' sauces are NOT canned...oh no you can see the cook in the back and he works hard and fast! home made real tortillas... and when you ask for them they give you at leat 4-5 thick big hot ones! :) tacos are crisp but not rock hard :) its a small place but so down to earth and just plane real! the owners have been there since MY parents were young! they are ALWAYS nice and no they do not know me lol they are always genuinely concerned how ur meal went or if u need anything. I always tell the manager Thank you and seeing the real appreciation on his, or anyone's face there makes me know : YES these people love to cook GOOD food for US! :D
EVERYHTING on the menu is excellent!

Food is great. There is no doubt about that. Everything from beans and rice, homade tortillas, chips and salsa, to the chile colorado is excellent. The place does need renovation. I know people will go regardless since the food is great. I just think its about time to do some upgrades at least to the bathroom. But food is awesome!
