Good Mexican food more on the traditional side. We had the puffy tacos and gorditas. Great flavor and fast service. Cash only. Definitely worth a stop if in the area!

I've had a different variety of foods and each one was great. Everything from the chilaquiles and papas rancheras tacos to salmas plate. The super nachos are a great buy. If you get a chance, you need to stop by and try this place out.

We went there after 5 pm only to discover that they were closed. According to the sign they close at 3:00 pm. One day they are open until 3:30.

Although this little kitchen style breakfast/lunch joint doesn't look like much we checked it out on many recommendations. As promised the food was delicious and took care of our yearning for Tex Mex till tomorrow. Cons:watch out for the large potholes at the parking lot entrance.

Never had anything I didn't love here. They are always busy, a testament to how good they are. Atmosphere: a little Mexican kitchen with the walls overloaded with handmade signs, photos, nick knacks, cheesy plastic "antiques," and tables a little too close together. All that doesn't matter once you get your plate. Great tacos, their daily specials (esp the Andy's... More

Love the food here. Great burritos and they are huge. Carnegie guisada is great. Cash only place but well worth looking for and trying.
