Great authentic Mexican food and drink. The lime limonada and pina drinks are absolutely amazing. Fresh and refreshing. Tortillas are handmade and you can tell. Reasonably priced and good flavor. I recommend the carne taco and the chicken tamales. Definitely a hidden gem.

Stopped by this little out of the way shop while in the area and was blown away by the food, service, and authenticity of this place. As soon as you get out of your car, you can smell the fresh tortilla's being made (corn and flour). Inside, they have a small seating area (mostly benches & stools), but are really set up for takeout.

Foods are simple, but made absolutely perfect, from the tortilla's to the toppings. Proteins include chicken, pork (spicy, but yummy), & beef. Platters include rice and beans, both homemade, as all is on site and prepared right before your eyes.

TIP: Order a pound or so of your favorite tortilla's to go, along with your food order. You will want them for home as soon as you try them, so go ahead and get them now!

Very fresh tortillas and toppings for their tacos. Fun selection of house made drinks. Limeade was great. My daughter liked the pork pineapple taco. Nice family to go options. Staff was very helpful explaining everything for our first visit.

The food was great, fresh and authentic. Best Mexican in Cincinnati. A hidden gem. Handmade tortillas and the carnitas were the best.

We were lucky to pass by this small restaurant one day. What a stroke of luck as the food is absolutely amazing. Since discovering this little gem, we have fantasies about their delicious food.
If you've never had authentic tacos with tortillas made on site, try them here. You might even be lucky enough to see them being made before your eyes. The tortillas are light, non GMO and you can taste and feel the difference. Try the carnitas taco as it's the best in the world. The chicken or beef are also great, and the chicken tamales are delicious as well. Three salsas are on each long bar-like table with stools. Try them all, as they each have individual flavors and heat.
Each taco is made to order. Very nice owners who are proud of their product, as they should be. Specials for taking home a whole chicken or a pound of meat of your choice, 2 sides, fresh tortillas, salsa, the works, for under $25! Also, a dozen tamales for under $20, and taco Tuesday's with the small tacos just $1!
