“Delicious!”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

This place is the best! The food is always amazing no matter what we order. It is a very small place though. As another reviewer said, the service is definitely erratic. They are usually friendly but inattentive because they do have so many people to tend to. The customers are a little intimidating at times but it is SO worth it for the food!

“A true hole in the wall.”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

I thought about writing a negative review so everyone would stay out of my favorite place to eat, but I guess when you find heaven you've got a responsibility to spread the joy.
This place scared me the first time I went in when I was in high school, but 11 years later I'm getting used to the he in the wall I call my favorite place to eat.
The staff are awesome and have all been there for decades and rarely change. They may be a little slow sometimes, but what's your hurry. Relax. Have a cervesa and enjoy the people watching.
Everything I've eaten in this fine establishment has been excellent, and when it isn't they make it right. I'm now a regular and just don't know what I'd do if I lost the taco loco.
You want a good Mexican meal at a great price, there isn't a better place within 30 miles.

“Good food, good price, erratic service.”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

Have been twice in Nov. 2011. First was dinner. Good food, lousy service. Second time for lunch. Still good food, service was much better.

A busy place. If you have to wait for a table you will stand in the middle of the restaurant. The breakfast burritos are excellent.

“Great food & prices, terrible service.”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

This little "hole in the wall" is some of the BEST mexican food in Brighton. The 4 shredded beef tacos are "off the hook" as are the red chili enchilads and the menudo. The wait staff is not very attentive but once you get their attention they are very pleasant and serve you with a smile. If you haven't tried this place or are new in town give it a try you will not be disappointed.
