“Exotic Mexican food”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

You can get some unique meat from this place. The taco selection is daring and amazing. They have a mini salsa bar that adds some extra spice to your meal.

Their burrito is Huge, you'll be asking for a doggy bag to finish it later.

“Home cooked Mexican”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Great lunch. Homemade corn tortillas, carnitas, refried beans and fresh pico de gallo. Not fancy, but excellent food and friendly service for a fair price! Generous portions!

“Large quantity but....”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Six of us visited recently and will not return. Food was marginal at best. Only one waitress for the small place and she doubles to check you out. Guacomole side wasn't good and very overpriced. We had many items from the menu. Fish tacos were bad, chorizo burrito was low end tex-mex. and none of this takes into account that the air con was either broken or they use a few room airconditioners of unacceptable capacity. Going in we weren't looking for Taos/Sante Fe type food but this meal didn't measure up to even the worst of the chain tex mex restaurants. Additionally there is only one table for more than four people. The restaurant configuration doesn't lend itself to create more. Children at the next table trashes the floor with salsa and it was never cleaned up. Just a poor experience all around.

Was driving by this place and decided to stop in to grab a bite to eat. Was totally not what I expected and was more than surprised for the good!! Really good food and large portions to be had here.

“The Real Deal”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are looking for Mexican fast food, this is as authentic as you are going to get in this area. The meals are great, the wide variety of salsa's will satisfy any taste from mild to on fire.
