Authentic Mexican food. The location is primarily takeout, but it does have some seating. The parking is limited, but the 6-7 times I was there I always found a spot in the front or the back. This is a favorite of mine, because my daughter...More

Very basic Mexican food, consistently good, for a reasonable price. They do a good take out business, and they have a handful of tables for folks who want to sit down and eat there. Don't ask the (male) owner for substitutions... it's not gonna happen.

One of the best burrito's in Santa Cruz. Parking is a problem but it is worth the hassle. Perfect if you get it to go and then go down to cove beach, or watch the surfers at Pleasure point

Authentic, inexpensive and delicious. Both my husband and I ordered the fish tacos with rice and beans. The serving was a generous size for $7 and perfect for lunch! I would recommend this place to anyone!

Not the carnie asada burrito I was looking for. It wasn't bad but far from great. Tortilla was really good. Price was decent.

Appears to be a family run place. We had tacos, flautas & rice.... plenty of food & very good & the restaurant appeared to be very clean.

This is my favorite place to get fish taco's (soft tortilla) in Santa Cruz. They are so fresh! I also like their enchilada plate w/ refried beans and a side of their fresh salsa. When in town I eat at Cafe Michoacan 2-3 times. I...More
