Around downtown Fort Lauderdale must be a arround 20 Mexican restaurants, this tex-mex place is not fresh, the sauces don't have good flavor, didn't like it. They need to use better ingredients and improve their flavor.

If you need a quick TexMex fix, this is your spot. The food doesn't disappoint and is one of the best values in Lauderdale. The food is made to order and comes out hot and fast. My "go-to" spot for a quick bite. Consistently good!

Fun little location just north of downtown. First time for us, we were looking for fish tacos in a casual setting and this place hit the spot. The roasted tomato salsa is amazing!

A converted gas station now serving solid burritos, tacos and salads. Not a lot of parking, order at the bar and they bring your food, quick service, nice salsa bar and worth the visit.
