First this place makes their own tortillas! And they are terrific. The tacos are the star for most people. Carnitas tortas and sides are really good and great salsas. BUT, for my money get the pork tamales!! Perfect mass, finally enough pork filling with the proper kick. First hint of how good it is, there's a line out the door at 11:30. Very clean, great staff. Take home a hunk of Tres Leches cake!

Authentic Mexican at its best! Absolutely delicious. All 4 of their homemade drinks were also wonderful. I had never heard of rice water, but I'm now a fan!
Such friendly staff! I wish we lived closer instead of 3 hours away.

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!
