“Well Worth A Try”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Skip the luxurious surroundings and dig into the food. The burrito, and the quesadilla were very good. The service is friendly and good. The decor is extremely basic, but "don't judge a book by its cover."

“Worthy of triple D status”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Staying at a airport hotel, myself and a co worker headed here for lunch. It's small and the food was great. I had a 3 taco basket. Like others had said, they are small and have a single tortilla. The favors were good. I had a carnitas, Al pastor and a lingua. My co worker had a burrito. It was very generous sized and looked good too. The staff clearly speaks little English, but the menu is Spanish/English, so you will do fine. It's part of the charm. Defiantly going back.

“Around the corner from the airport...”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Small hole in the wall - type place. Food very fresh. Only a couple of people spoke English and the menu is primarily in Spanish, which wasn't an issue for us. Not a huge menu-offering, but sufficient and the restaurant had a friendly neighborhood vibe. No fountain drinks but they offer Coke in glass bottles (made from real sugar). Nice place overall.

“Mexican Gem in Little Havana”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Ran into this tiny place on Flagler & couldn't have been happier. Sat outside, & even though constant traffic noise, had fun Spanish music playing. Servers didn't forget about us out there. My enchiladas with their own specialty pork were presented in a refined way with a sizable chunk of quality food. Flavors were bursting, & they offered a wide range of staples, as well as exotic, Mexican fare.
