No frills; just amazing quality ingredients. So surprised. Excellent service. My type of place. My only request is to cook the burrito shell a little more; a "singe".

Super small place, a quarter block west of the Lincoln/Montrose intersection, across from the park. You may have to circle the block to find a spot to park, but in a city with countless little spots offering Mexican food, THIS spot is a gem. I have never had home-made tamales as wonderful as these in any restaurant in any city.... More

Cheap tacos, piping hot tamales and really good guacamole. Service was fast. Cash only. Will definitely go back again.

All their food is solid - including fresh guacamole - but I keep going back for perhaps the best carne asada burrito I've ever had.

Only customer who seek an authentic taco which has a great chewy, flavorful taste come here. Tacos on a tortillo with cilantro & onion. Nothing like the Chipotle crap. Their chips with guac is also good. I'd get their burrito, but they're so huge, I sometimes can't finish it.

Excellent food! Took a 30 minute cab ride from city centre but so worth it! Would recommend this restaurant and go back again.

At this place you'll get awesome Mexican food in large amounts for a decent price. Guacamole was done just right. My Nachos were delicious. Rest off the party were satisfied as well.

Thank Carolin S
