This place looked a bit dodgy at first but the smell drew us in. The man at the till (maybe the owner?) was really welcoming and helped us with ordering. We eat a great deal of Mexican food, but the burritos with rice and beans were some of the best we have every had; the Chili Releno was also very... More

I think I may have ordered the wrong thing because I found the tacos to be just ok but the line was out the door and every booth in the place was filled. They clearly have more to offer than I was able to see. I would try them again but wouldn't order the beef or chicken tacos again.

Personal standby as the go-to Mexican place locally. Very inexpensive for the quality and authenticity, and ample portions. The place looks a little 50's sketchy, but is the real thing. usually a bit of a line, but mostly take-out.

This place is a staple on the Central Coast. They've got the best bean and cheese burritos ever! Highly recommended for the budget traveler that needs a filling meal for little cash. A local classic!

First, this place isn't much to look at inside. However, the young woman who took our order was AWESOME! She explained each item to us without hesitation. The burritos were great, full of meat! The tacos are soft shell and the "pastor" was excellent. The hot sauce is holy hot, be warned! The salsa had a hint of smoky flavor... More

This is fantastic Mexican food! The wet burritos and the street tacos are great. Great salsas and guacamole too. Above all, the prices are very reasonable. Just the kind of "hole in the wall" place you would expect to get the best food at!

We live in Baja, Mexico and when we stay in Los Osos we always stop by this place. The carnitas tostada is one of my favorites. It is a popular restaurant and finding a seat can be a challenge but the food is worth it. The horchata is pretty good.

This is a local's favorite. I love everything on the menu, but the carne asada wet coronado burritos are amazing! My friend ordered their french fries too and they were bomb.. Make sure to order an horchata before you leave too!

Good, straight-forward Mexican food at an affordable price. Like a fast-food restaurant in style, but food is much better.

I wish we had stopped here on our first night visiting Morro Bay. The tacos & burritos were awesome . We were there right before 11a.m. on a weekday & by 11:15 there was a line forming outside the door. I could have eaten more if I had room to eat more, would have tried more food. You cannot beat...
