I love Mexican food! And I love this intimate little restaurant. I'm pretty regular with the Chalupas, but my kids love the enchiladas and breakfast tacos. Always open and always friendly and good service. Only gave it 4 Stars because it's a simple and not...More

An amazing place to eat, with lots of great ambiance, great service, and food that is out of this world. If you're looking for a great place to eat authentic Mexican food this is the place for you.

Great breakfast tacos. I recommend the chorizo egg and cheese, and cactus and egg. This restaurant is in an old drive in Whataburger. It has a drive through window or you can eat in.

I think you can trust a place when seemingly every blue collar worker in the area is eating there. I have been going for years, housed in an old school Whataburger.

Tacos are fantastic. Unfortunately it was late and we didn't have it in us to eat a larger meal but we are going to make a point of having something more on our next visit to SA. Yum!

OK if you need a quick take out taco stop. I don't recommend this as a decent "dine in" experience. (The building appears to have been a drive-through fast food joint.) Prices are very reasonable.

Genuine Mexican Food - the shrimp cocktail was on point, chips and salsa are dangerously good (especially the darker ones...you will see what I mean) and the tortillas are homemade. Short and jeans, nothing fancy because it doesn't need to be.

I'll keep it simple. Great food, fast service, friendly people, good prices. Floors, tables and silverware were all clean. When you come here, look for an old, A frame building with covered parking.

If you're looking for a great "hole-in-the-wall" this is the place! I recommend the taquitos they are the best I've had this side of the border! The Mexican food tastes very fresh & authentic!
