“Terrible Service & Cold, Soggy Food”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

This place is a hit and miss. More miss than hit. Servers have the worst attitude. And yeah the lettuce tacos are tasty, but the chicken should at least be warm. This makes me believe it's sitting in tubs and not freshly made.

This particular date I ordered fajita panchos. How can you go wrong? Well, it was very wrong. They were chips placed, then some Munster cheese, which should melt nicely, and then doused with bean soup. Refried they were not! As far as fajita was concerned...it was minimal. I could have put the total amount of fajita on a table spoon. This was cold too. The cheese that should melt with ease...didn't... Did I mention the moody servers? And there was only one other table with 2 people. It's not like they were swamped with business.

“stop in !”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

We chose this place randomly and it was a great surprise ! Their menu will satisfy any taco lover. Their meat & chicken were seasoned perfectly , they have lettuce tacos, flour and corn tortillas, parrilladas, queso flameado , agua de limon....it felt like back home! Of the 3 days we were in Laredo, we made a stop each day.
Try it, you won't be disappointed!!
It's a taqueria so don't expect high end service or decor. But do expect delicious food!

“Authentic and delicious!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

If you go to this little hole in the wall, you have to try the lettuce tacos. Instead of tortillas (which are delicious) try the switch and have a chicken taco on a lettuce leaf! Also try their tacos with pineapple and chicken - Sabroso!

“Terrible service!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Went with friends and the waiter was very rude. She ignored us for about 15 min then finally got around to getting our order. The food is not what it was when this place opened. They take forever to bring your food out, and the quality has had a major decline the tacos a very greasy overall not good anymore. At the end they did not want to separate our tabs, and were quite rude about it. Will never visit this place again, and no one should!
