“Great hole in the wall”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Great Mexican food.
Cheap prices.
Beach bum atmosphere.
The carne Asada and Al Pastor tacos (2 of each) were great and had rice and beans on the side for each along with 1 water and a large horchata was only 17$. Came out in about 10minutes. Tasty cheap and hits the spot.

“Mmmm delicious.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

If you're vegetarian, play with the menu a little, they're very willing to make substitutions. Don't miss the churros!

Reviewed August 26, 2013

Very good!

Visit here.

Eat this if you like things on the spicier side.

If not, choose some of the other excellent things these wonderful folks have on offer.

Bargain-elicious!

“Supreme”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

There is a reason everyone recommends this restaurant. It is simply great food. There is no atmosphere or fancy service but the food reigns supreme. The portions are huge and the prices are incredibly low. Value is an understatement. Make sure you stop here. You will not be disappointed.

“Just go!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Do not expect any warm and inviting tables, linens or cutlery.
Plastic is it!
But you did not chose this shop for any reason other than the delicious food.
Just go and bring your appetite and no need for much $$
