This is by far the best authentic Mexican food in the area, and they have freshly made tortillas that are amazing. If you are looking for "Tex Mex" or Taco Bell, you won't find it here. The Queso Fundito appetizer is delicious, and the Steak Enchiladas are also a favorite. The staff is always friendly and attentive, and the owner is very personable, often stopping by our table to chat for a few minutes. Definitely one of our favorite places!

Trio of salsa and tostada/ sopa combo hit the spot. Great place for a filling lunch. Could be the best Mexican food around here.

Ate here based on good reviews. Don't believe them. Unimaginative food served indifferently. Chicken enchiladas Mole were as follows: dry boiled chicken wrapped in dry rubbery corn tortillas topped briefly with bland yet bitter Mole sauce. These should be simmered in sauce until all is tender and the sauce should have a depth of flavor missing in this preparation. I've had better Mole out of a jar.

The three house salsa's all either taste like bitter dry ancho chile or are too hot to consume and the house chips are hard/almost hard greasy hunks of dental danger.

Table service was good, we were the only ones there at dinner hours between 6 and 7.

We had lunch here today and was very happily surprised! Not California Mexican but, after looking around here for decent Mexican ..this fit the bill! Fresh. The guacamole is excellent ..the mild sauce with the chips before our meal was wonderfully filled with avocado ..different then any other we have tried...try it I think ur gonna like it!

So glad to find this authentic place in Fort Myers! Was everything other reviewers had written and more. When we asked if they had huevos con chorizo [which wasn't on the menu],they happily provided the best we have had in years! Please give this a try and bring your friends.
