“Quintessentially superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Been here for breakfast, lunch & dinner. All have been absolutely stellar. Simple place, atmospherewise, but always with fantastic food at more than decent prices. The homemade corn tortillas are a standout as is the birria & the huevos mexicanos. Great tacos, too. As an added plus, it's near Food City in case you forgot something. Don't miss it!

“No frills, good value... Pico fruit salad v good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Busy and basic cafe w interesting eats. The eponymous fruit salad is worth stopping for! Fish taco is good too. Service is quick enough for a weekday lunch.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Corn tortillas heavy, fish and shrimp in a heavy batter, two small shrimp in gigantic batter shell per taco, beans pretty tasteless, rice -- well, it's rice, carne asada tacos not bad.

“Excellent Mexican food for the average Joe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

This is how to do basic Mexican for the average Joe -- simply tacos, burritos and tortas with the right meats and fix'ins. The salsa they provide is excellent. It is in the heart of south Tucson. Not a date place -- nothing fancy -- just good affordable Mexican food. I'd go back again and again.

“Not fancy, but fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

If you haven't tried tacos with lengua, birria, and other Mexican delicacies (and you're an adventurous eater who doesn't expect your tacos to taste like Taco Bell) you need to try this place. There's no decor, no table service, no fancy plates, no view (except other diners), nothing but the excellent tasty tacos in a lot of styles. Don't miss it!
