Really tasty and affordable. Definitely not a touristy trap kinda place, which is exactly what I was looking for.

Wow was the food amazing ! you're not here for 5-star ambience but to enjoy some authentic mexican cuisine....and Alma delivers big time ! We had the enchiladas and tacos which were both equally amazing. Ask for the hot sauce on the side, and enjoy some fantastic food.

Yes, you can eat Mexican food on Espanola Way or Lincoln Mall. But this is the real deal. A tiny jewel of a restaurant with food which is way better - and way cheaper - than the tourist restaurants elsewhere. Some of the best fajitas I've ever head and a kickass frozen marguarita, too. A great experience.

Ordered from uber eats and got the veggie Burrito with a side of guac. It was delicious! I love a well made burrito and this place hit the spot!

Thought this was a great little spot in South beach for a tasty lunch. One of the best Guacamole's I've tasted in a while. And lovely fresh tacos! All made there and fresh and well priced. It's not touristy, it's understated and quiet. We really appreciated this in busy, touristy south beach.

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and took a Lyft there. The restaurant is a hole in the wall on Washington St. and there is 6-8 tables with an eclectic decor but don't be put off by looks. The food was authentic and the margaritas delicious!! Service was quick and attentive. After you can walk to Ocean drive or Lincoln... More

Fresh, tasty Mexican food at moderate prices makes this an oasis in the expensive Art Deco district. A perfect place for families, but I would not mind coming here solo or with my wife. This is a place for everyone, and the staff do such a wonderful job. You sense they put in a lot of effort and love. Muchas... More

This was the best quesadilla I ate. Fresh, smokey and affordable cost. Coffee espresso was great too, very balanced taste. Highly recommended!
