Literally! Small place but really good food. Great salsa that bit back. Had pollo con mole but a red mole rather than the brown that we get in Cozumel. Very tasty and a huge portion server with rice, frijoles refritos, and tortillas. As an added plus they even had Modelo Negro.

I was hungry and was excited to find a hole-in-the-wall-type place that I simply hoped would be a standard California taco stand. YUM! This place? Not so much. The very strange menu would not allow me to order the standard sort of combo that I wanted. Accordingly I settled for the standard burrito that was no better than can be... More

This little restaurant off Santa Clara on side street Post has delicious authentic Mexican food and all three of us were pleased with our choices: chimichanga, tostada, enchilada with crispy beef taco, beef tamale and cheese enchilada. Chips with guacamole and sauces were served abundantly. I was especially pleased that the meals were served piping hot. Our server was very... More

Very good super burrito (i. e., the big one!) with chicken, beans, rice & guac inside a super sized tortilla. Reasonable price. However, they charged 2 bucks extra for appetizer chips (most Mex restaurants provide them gratis, as they are super cheap, esp at the bulk rate they no doubt pay), which weren't heated, (they are always better that way)...

Went here to test and.... Service was fast, friendly and attentive. Starter chips with salsa were really good ones. Salsa was quite spicy that's exactly to my taste so my expectations were high..... I took chicken mole and that was flat in taste which was disappointment. This may be my own fault as I wasn't sure what to expect and... More

Stopped by for lunch before the USA v Columbia game. We all had different lunch dishes and all were delicious and the guacamole was out of this world.

Thank you fellow TripAdvisors! We came here for lunch to meet my sister when visiting from east coast after reading your reviews. We miss the authentic Mexican food of California and were looking forward to a nice low key delicious lunch. This place was perfect. Service could not be better, we stayed for hours and we're not made to feel... More

J and I ordered Taco Salads. They were delicious. The atmosphere is very welcoming. Our host and hostess, Angel & Gloria were so nice and polite. This is a family owned establishment. Good food, good drinks and good company.

This one goes on the Food List Hits Finally found an authentic Mexican food. The salsa to start is so delicious! The enchiladas are filled up and tasty. Good chile verde is really hard to come by, this place nailed it! The service is so welcoming and clean! The decor is on point.

This is a very small restaurant tucked in on a narrow one way street in San Jose. The staff are very helpful in selecting something good on the menu. You can ask the waiter to make something different than what's described on the menu if you desire. Very good prices for the type of casual dining experience. The chips are... More
