What you see is what you get! Authentic Mexican-almost like the trucks in New Haven. I got 4 tacos and that was filling. The tacos are small and $1.75-what more could you ask for? They bring you chips and salsa-the salsa is really spicy, which I LOVED. It's a hole in the wall spot and it's delicious. I'm glad my... More

This tiny location in a small plaza on Rt 5 in Wallingford is fantastic. Minimal menu for eat in or take out, but the authentic choices and extremely reasonable prices make this worth a stop. Tacos are only 1.75 each. They are small size but allows you to mix and match a couple of choices. Plenty of room to dine... More

Authentic is the word that comes to my mind first when thinking of our visit. The food was very good, the staff was quick and professional and the meal was delicious.

I order lots of meals from this restaurant, dine-in and take-out. The Chicken Fajita Salad is one of my favorites, and the one I ordered tonight.

Limited menu. Went in for take out with a coupon. Burrito was full of rice & beans, OK carnita, but very dry. Taco was only meat - one chicken, one beef - with soft tortilla - very dry - no salsa or any "dressing". Flavor was OK but plain. Others mention other ingredients - but I wasn't offered anything -...

Totally authentic Mexican food prepared in front of you. Burritos, quesadillas, tortas, tacos, tamales, tostadas and breakfast burritos. The sauces are the real deal. There is a very large selection of ingredients to include in each of your choices. eat in or take out. You'll be enjoying authentic Mexican food not an Americanized version of it.

This is a hole in the wall type joint in a strip small at the south end of Wallingford. The menu is simple, the food is delicious, and the prices are great. I often take my young children on the weekends for tacos and quesadillas. The salsas on the table are great as well.
