This is the brother/sister of Boca Chica, a 48 year old family owned restaurant across the street. This is a good place to go in and get a quick order of tacos, burritos, chips and guac. It is not at all fancy, traditional kinda hard booths. Much more oriented to come in, pick up food and take it home. Food is tasty. If you want food to take home, this is a good place. If you want to sit and eat, I'd recommend going across the street.

This is a neighborhood Mexican fast food joint that is worth driving in from other neighborhoods for. The chicken mole is amazing and everything I've have there is several notches above the national chains. Not a fancy place, but clean and pleasant.

I think the absolute best item on the menu is the fried flour taco. Load it up with their homemade salsa and it doesn't get any better! I've been there several times and can't wait to go back when I'm visiting St. Paul to try something different on their menu!

Suprrisingly great take-out/drive-thru place. Fried flour tacos and chicken flautas are favorites. Very bummed that the Maplewood location closed.

This is the place to go for enchiladas and salsa.
