Restaurant details
Reviewed January 20, 2015

This place may not be much from the outside - all you see is a little walk up window and it appears to be located in an old transmission repair shop. They have inside (covered) seating and a window to order from inside as well. The food is absolutely wonderful and the prices are too. I had chicken tacos and a tamale that were exceptional. The tacos were made with soft corn tortillas and had white chicken meat and were topped with cilantro. The tamales were sitting on a flat corn husk and were about 1.5" diameter and 6" long. The small tacos were $1.25 and the tamales $1.75. The salsas they served were fabulous and the red is not for the light hearted. They had home made flans that were among the best we have ever eaten. I wish I lived near Deland as I'd go to this place weekly. A lot of locals know about it because they had quite a crowd of people around lunch time. The window outside was popular for take-out as well. If you love delicious Mexican food you must not pass this place up.
