Being a foodie, grannie has always wanted to stop in at this Mexican Market that also serves wonderful, tasty authentic Mexican food and tacos. The price cannot be beat for the fresh served tacos (serving begins early) and on certain days Menudo is available.
Friendly service, full meat counter, excellent prices, I feel like I uncovered a real gem here.
Next time you are traveling thru Mt Vernon/ Burlington it is worth it to stop. Easy off and on the "College" exit, traveling south, take a right at bottom of freeway off ramp, the store sits catty corner to the signal

We were looking for a new place to eat some GOOD Mexican food. We were chatting with our clerk at a different store and asked him where he eats, he was young Mexican, and he told us about this place. "We eat there all the time" meaning he and his co workers. So we gave it a try.
I had the tacos, 1.00 each and my husband had a burrito, 5.00 and huge! full of meat and it was fresh and filling. Great flour tortilla, not made with those nasty store bought tortillas.
It is not just a place to eat it is also a meat shop and a small store. So we grabbed some chicken and chorizo, they make it there.
You go order your own food it is not a place your have a waitress.
We will be back for sure. A great find. If you want good food ask a local where they eat!

We were visiting Mount Vernon, and have been to this restaurant before. Meal was good, I had soup and split my hubby's lasagna, which was huge. We also had Italian sodas, lots of flavours, and they had free refills, which was nice.
Service was good, mini dessert was perfect finish to the meal. Very handy near to the mall. We will go again next time we are in the area.
