This place was recommended by several locals. We expected a sit-down restaurant but it was counter service. The menu is varied, covering all the traditionals. What was surprising was the quality of the food. Simply put, one of the best Mexican restaurants we've been to around the US. Superb food, lots of it. If you don't mind the counter ordering, lack of fancy tables and chairs, and just want a great meal at a good price, this is recommended as a must-eat in Miami Beach.

Mexican food is hit or miss, but when it's a hit it's fantastic. Alma Mexicana was a definite hit. I ordered the steak and chicken tacos which were so simple yet so delicious- fresh, perfectly cooked meat, authentic corn tortillas, some chopped onion and cilantro, with chips and out of this world pico on the side. On another occasion I ordered an enchilada, which had the perfect amount of filling and sauce on top. This place really can't be beat for the price- my boyfriend and I ate until our hearts were content on two separate occasions on our 4 day trip and did not spend over $30 on either visit (including alcohol). If you're looking for delicious food at a good price, try this place. I can't wait to come back to Miami to eat here again!

The corn tortillas, pico and chips were fresh. The wait staff was friendly and quick. The prices were reasonable for Miami Beach. We would grab lunch here again!

The friendly waitstaff, the fun down-home atmosphere and most of all the great food makes this a place we will definitely return to when we're next in South Beach. The fish tacos were absolutely delicious - as good or better than we've had in the Yucatan. We thought the prices very reasonable, and such a relief from the usual fare. A wonderful find!
