A basic, no frills authentic Mexican restaurant where yo can still sit at the counter and get a quick meal. Everything made from scratch with great flavors.

Good authentic Mexican food. I always come here when I want some good authentic Mexican food. All the Tacos here are good, the beef, the pork, chicken all delicious. Come here if you want good Mexican.

On our visit, we had enchiladas, tacos, a burrito, a torta and rice and beans! Perfection doesn't describe the flavors. Cooked perfectly, seasoned great, super fresh...I could go on and on. Green chili was spot on, perfectly spicy. My daughters scarfed down their taco plates!...More

This little Mexican restaurant is the bomb. It's nothing fancy but it's exactly what I was wanting. I got the burrito especial with pork green chili and it was amazing. Definitely recommend this place for some casual Mexican at an affordable price.

Knowing a smidge of Spanish as a prerequisite to placing an order here gives you an idea of the authentic caliber of the place. Not flashy at all; feels a bit like a divey diner. But the food is phenomenal! Slow-cooked pork carnitas, beef cheek...More

Its pretty cheap but not known for being cheap. It is not inexpensive compared to other taco shops. Tacos al a carte are like 1.60, burritos, smothered in green chili are 10 dollars, breakfast used to be 5.25 but I think... More
