All kinds of people - suits, students, workers, families--flock to this small establishment for take out or to eat at one of the dozen or simple tables. The counter staff take orders quickly and the Mexican food prep is fresh and timely. All at great prices.

Great tortilla, beans and rice. Chili rellenos a bit spicy - expected, I know - and authentically prepared. Really enjoyed the food and they give you a lot!

One of the few places that has $1 tacos on Taco Tuesday! Talking to some people who live in San Francisco and Oakland they were lamenting about no places that does $1 tacos. Well this place does! AND they taste great! The burritos are a great deal and taste excellent. They have a bigger variety of meats like beef tongue... More

Unbelievably inexpensive (a great taco, plate of beans, and mounds of great salsa is around $4.00) and wonderful food. Quick service. The best is the salsa. For me, the meal is just a vehicle for the salsa. Try a chile relleno with NO salsa (the red sauce will not be very tasty) then put your own on it from the... More

The food is not uniformly good but most of it is worth a try. My wife loves the quesadilla suiza and I like the carnitas tacos.

Stick with me for a second because I have a story to tell. My wife and I needed our wedding catered and REALLY wanted a taqueria to come to my dad's house and make the food fresh there. It's harder than one would think. We found a place in Hayward with a similar name to this place. We drove from... More
