“Fun, funky and yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Finding tamales in a Mexican restaurant is pretty rare, but for this place tamales are a regular offering on their menu. It is a tiny place on the main strip but because it was raining when we went, there was still ample seating. The guys behind the service counter were extremely friendly and engaged you in small talk. We had the green chile tamales and they were awesome. Covered in cheese and green chile sauce, two of them made a meal. Along with a couple of beers and chips and salsa, we were surprised at how little it cost. Menu included other offerings like burritos and tacos. The burritos look huge! Highly recommend if you are looking for a casual, laid back place for a quick eat.

“Great tacos!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

This place was great. I had three tacos, one beef, one chix, one pork. All were great, but that beef taco was something else!! The owner offered amazing service, and even offers a discount for people with a gap in their teeth. My daughter was thrilled!! She literally walked out of that place a happier person. I had no idea that she had been teased for the gap in her teeth before, but here, she saved all of us on lunch and felt truly valued. This place has a sense of humor and GREAT FOOD!!

“Great Food, Fun and Funky.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Since we were there in off-season, it wasn't crowded which I hear is not the normal state of affairs.

The staff was great and patiently guided us through the choices. Being from Texas, we have some pretty decent tacos and tamales ourselves but these were outstanding. I had a couple tacos and a couple tamales and all were great.

Fresh, tasty, well prepared ingredients will satisfy both carnivorous and vegetarian patrons.

“Fast and flavorful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I got the spicy beef tacos twice in two days and would go back again if we didn't have to leave. Fresh salsas, guacamole and great margaritas completed a perfect quick lunch.
