Stopped here on the spur of the moment for dinner and was delighted to find flavorful and delicious food well prepared. The environment is simple and I loved the help yourself chips. Both the "green" and "red" salsas were flavorful and my chimichanga was a...More

This place is a good choice for a cheap lunch or dinner. The restaurant itself is not a fancy one but it is homely and they give pretty huge amount of food on a wide range. I recommend it as a cheap&fast restaurant.

Waked by this place in many occasions. Looking for a late night snack and a cold beer and Palo Alto closes down by 9 PM on weeknights. This place was a beacon in night. Great tacos, nice people and cold beers. What more is needed.

I really enjoyed the wet green burritos and chimichangas here. Very inexpensive given the meat to filler rice ratio. Large selection including huevos dishes available all day.
