Located on a strip mall parallel, couple streets away from N Mathilda Ave, it is not the place which you can run into. It was worth finding the pace though. The interiors are full with sports and historic mexican souvenirs and the tables are clean. Not knowing spanish is not a problem as the menu is a wall full of... More

Started eating here about 8 years ago and still love the food. Consistently good tacos burritos and combo plates. The Al pastor is always tasty and is my go to in just about anything.

We asked a close by gas station for a recommendation of a restaurant. Walking there was an adventure, but the menu was really authentin Mexican and the food was really good and tasty. This is not a white-tablecloth place, and very popular also for take-away. Strongly recommended.

Just a hole in the wall, so to speak, that serves the most wonderful tasty Mexican lunches, quickly and without fanfare. With over 40 items on the menu, it is hard to know what to pick. The photos of each dish on the wall help narrow the selection and then as you get to the cashier, you see there are... More

Ruby's has outdoor seating but when I visited it was filled with men sitting and standing around all the tables drinking beer. I didn't feel too comfortable inside the restaurant since everyone was speaking Spanish and I don't know Spanish. When it came time to place my order at a counter, the person taking it did speak to me in... More

By definition a taqueria is an inexpensive Mexican restaurant where you usually order at a window so it is not a nice sit-down restaurant. This taqueria was in a small shopping center and offers tables to eat at. You should be aware that there is no menu per se. They have the basic food categories such as tacos, burritos, enchiladas,...

Most main courses were priced at $9.99. With beer and tax, ate for $14.87. No tip added when paying by credit card. There was a tip jar. The food, tilapia for me, beef for my dinner companion, was tasty, and good perfectly. The set up is you order your meals from the front till and they announce your order number.... More

Really great Mexican food. Not too greasy. Really love the fact that they have the medio litro Mexican Cokes. Their hot salsas could use some more spice.

This lace has a pretty decent huevos rancheros. Although I mainly come for this dish, every dish I have ever had here was good and full of flavor,

Went here for lunch. Lots of delicious offerings at unbelievable prices. For lunch we each ordered 4 tacos, ended up costing less than $17 for two of us. Very informal. Picnic tables outside, plastic table clothes inside. But really great.
