Don't let the long lunchtime queues put you off - this is the best place to eat in Santa Elena. It's not quite up to my high standards but the ingredients are good and the choices are broad. Great veggie options too!

This is a perfect lunch spot. The vegetarian and pork tacos were excellent, and for a great price! We also got a side of chips and guac, which was very good too.

It's not a traditional burrito or taco. I have had my share of Mexican food, in Mexico, and this is hardly like authentic Mexican food as other reviewers have claimed. It was good but it certainly wasn't the best burrito ever. I would say it's more like Tex-Mex. The burritos / tacos were reasonably priced. The other stuff was over-priced. The chips and guacamole was $4!

For those with young kids, it's not ideal. The seating is right on the street. The seats and tables are quite wobbly and my kids were a bit unstable.

The title is pretty much how I feel about this place. Cheap, great service and the food is as tasty as in any expensive restaurant in Santa Elena. The portions are big, lots of options for vegetarians and meat-eaters. The guacamole was the best I've ever had, ask for extra!

I was intrigued by this place one day while exploring the area and came back the following day when we needed something quick. (Being just a window on the street I expected it to be fast food. It took about 12-15 minutes to get our food.) It was delicious – some of the best tacos I’ve ever eaten. I ordered the pork tacos. They have pork, sautéed onions, grilled pineapple, cabbage and creamy cilantro sauce. Amazing. My husband ordered a large veggie burrito. He also really liked his. I will say that my husband would’ve been OK with the small and I could’ve gotten away with 2 tacos in place of 3, but I was happy to eat the last one!
