Whenever we visit my son at Davis, we stop here for lunch. We have had all sorts of tacos and burritos, as well as their chimichanga. In our last visit, the staff recommended the beef cheek tacos, which were rich, unctuous and beefy. My sense...More

The food was good and authentic. Service was very friendly. I had the carne asada plate and it was good but I wasn't expecting finely chopped meat. Flavors were all good. Seems to be a place where college kids go... hence, good value.

The food is great and pretty authentic (I'm Mexican how has family in Mexico so I can say that). The service is average. Pretty popular with college kids but they are on the pricey side from my experience. And the restaurant could upgrade their seating.

Now our favorite for take-out. Carnitas are a family recipe and particularly good! Owners are particularly nice and friendly.

You can't ask for better mexican food. It's a family run business and they truly care about the food they make. All of the meats are outstanding (especially the pork products -pastor, carnitas etc), and the prices are very reasonable for the portion size. Cannot...More
