I was walking by this place and there seemed to be lots of people eating there, so I decided to try it out. I'm really glad I did. The restaurant isn't fancy - a nice casual carry-out style place with plenty of seating if you want to eat there. There are big pictures over the cash showing the various menu... More

I was in PA for business and staying nearby. Bump into the place randomly, tried and now it became a safe go-to-place for authentic tacos. I had those that you not only can't find in any taqueria, but also well prepared: cabeza (head), tripa (tripes), and lengua (tongue). These are for the people who dare to try the acquired taste...

Waked by this place in many occasions. Looking for a late night snack and a cold beer and Palo Alto closes down by 9 PM on weeknights. This place was a beacon in night. Great tacos, nice people and cold beers. What more is needed.

I really enjoyed the wet green burritos and chimichangas here. Very inexpensive given the meat to filler rice ratio. Large selection including huevos dishes available all day.

Their veggie burrito is delicious (and cheap). They also have a good variety of salsas. There is outside seating in the back, perfect for lunch.

this is a neighborhood taqueria that offers a variety of casual Mexican food. The prices are very modest. Odering is done at a counter and pick up the food at the other end of the counter when your order is called. the quality of the food was great. It had excellent flavor and cooked nicely. I was visiting Palo Alto,... More

Been traveling on business to the Bay area for the last 6 months. My per diem barely covers the price of meals in this town. Add a couple beers and it's coming out of pocket. Anyway, I grew up in AZ. Spent a lot of time down in Sonora, MX on weekends, doing what you do down in Mexico and... More

I have had the green wet burrito. It was amazing. Big portion. It is not a chique ambiance, but who cares the food is great.

So not gonna lie, the food wasn't horrible, but the atmosphere was a little scary. It was dirty everywhere, and the little side buffet with salsas and what not in it were super not appetizing at all. And omg, that place had a smell to it that was less than pleasing. If you want a cheap burrito though, this is... More
