Hidden little gem in the heart of Newport, KY. Not much to look at on the outside (blink and you'd miss it) and spartan inside, but the food is fresh, authentic and delicious. Not one of your beans-rice-burrito on a plate types (you know what I'm talking about). Feeling adventurous? They almost certainly have something you've never tried. One of my favorite places to introduce people to. Service is quick and friendly. Very reasonable pricing.

Great food and price. This is not much on the outside but the food is excellent. The staff could not have been nicer. I love eating in this little restaurant. They have a grocery in the rear.

Stopped in to buy some horchata in the grocery store and stayed for lunch. Horchata in the restaurant is refreshing. All dishes were well prepared and traditional. Good selection. Excellent salsa. Looking forward to a return visit.

This food was by far the best Mexican food I've ever had. I had the flag enchilada with beef, chicken and cheese. Wonderful... The chips were the best ever along with the salsa. Very friendly staff. Can't wait to visit Kentucky again, just to eat here.
