I would not have expected this to be Mexican food by sign. As we checked it out, another person gave it a strong recommendation so we decided to try it. The food was delicious and filling. The portions are generous and the price is awesome. I plan to go back next time I am in the area.

If you like a good Mexican Taqueria that is quick to serve, this is your place. Their pork burritos are fantastic, and while you wait you can enjoy their house made horchata or some freshly made chips and delicious salsa. The outside seating is our favorite. Kathy's kitchen is small and quaint serving the community delicious Mexican food.

My wife and I had the best breakfast burrito on the face of the planet and Claudia was wonderful. Inexpensive, fast and tasty!

Great place for breakfast or lunch with very good mexican food as well as a few other options. It is not very big, but there always seems to be a table available inside or outside.

If you want a quick, tasty breakfast before golf or other outing this is the place. Great little 'hole in the wall' type you love to find. Very pleasant staff, fair prices and good food. Try it!

Good food, great portions, excellent prices! Interior dining is small but there are a few outdoor seats available. Surprising find in Carmel. We were just passing through. Great Mexican restaurant and very friendly staff.

Yes, it is little inside but what fantastic food for "very little". Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, I enjoyed 2 breakfasts there. Friendly fast service. Food was delicious. Order at the counter for table service or order to go. I will certainly return there when I am in the Valley again. Honestly, it can't be beat for price and... More
