Has the special $1.00 chicken or beef tacos. Salsa is good as well and they give you a nice size bowl as well. You should give it a try.

This is my local Mexican restaurant and we are happy it is. Good food, really fast. Very kid friendly. Some of the best queso around.

This place is small and family owned. Service is usually great and the food is authentic mexican. Fajitas, carnitas and the jalisco special are a few faves!

Family owned business with the sweetest owners ever - great family place in a relaxed casual atmosphere. We regularly come to Taco Tuesday for $1 tacos and $2 margaritas. Service is top notch and even though the lot is often full, they are very efficient and wait time is never too long.

Hole in the wall place with the best queso dip I've ever had. Food always fresh and hot, never scary.

The food was very good. Good flavor and plenty of options on menu. The chips and salsa were very tasty. But the best part was the service we received from Martha. I would go back.

My wife and I love this place. We eat there about once a week. The people are so friendly. The service is always great and they go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. Just last night a new server brought me the "Jumbo" margarita instead of the size I usually order. Pacco noticed it and inquired.... More

I am Latin, not that it qualifies as an expert on Latin food, however the food was bland and the serves seemed to rush the entire dining experience. The price was fair yet the quality was lackluster. The booths were also a bit cramped. From what I was told this is the spot to go, but not for us again.

I absolutely love this place. I was a regular while living in Kirkwood. The food is absolutely delicious. The cheese dip is a must. Simply the best I've ever had!

Nice people, good service and the food is pretty good too. The seating area is cramped at every table; you're sitting too close to the table in every booth, or once you get in, you aren't getting out at the larger tables when on the end. I'm not a small guy, but even my kids make the comment every time... More
