This is one of my favorite places. Every time I come to Orlando I have to make an effort to eat here. Truly real authentic Mexican food, great service, priced just right. You have to try it out. They even have a Mexican supermarket next-door.

Small place next to a Mexican mercado. Went on a Saturday night, there was a mariachi man playing and singing. My food order came out quickly, but after that I only saw my waitress when I flagged her down, which was no problem for me. The wet burrito was pretty awesome, and I really dug the vibe in the place.... More

There food was really good. Service took forever to get our orders but it was a great atmosphere and they have the best Horchata I've tasted in a while. If you just care about the food and not the service, I recommend this place for you.

When I moved from L.A., I was craving good Mexican food. My colleague from Mexico turned me on to this place. This food is as close to being back in California. It is authentic and very delicious! Restaurant is clean and has a fun vibe. To those that say the food here is bland, I disagree. Perhaps you are confusing... More

A bit hard to find due to signage being way up high, but after driving by a couple of times, we pulled in. It was small inside, but decorated appropriately for a Mexican eatery. Got seated right away, order placed and came up quick. Delicious pork plate, wife had a yummy dish with veggies. Music a tad loud, but the... More

Been here 3 times. Twice it was great. Third time, the service was awful. Food is decent. A little pricey for gut busting Mexican, but that's Orlando for you. The little Hispanic food store next door sells really good popsicles!

Excellent food and service. Best Mexican food (and margareta) we have and in a long time. The exterior can be a little off putting but when you get inside it's fantastic!

We choose this restaurant because of the reviews, but I beg to differ on those high stars!! The food was extremely bland. We went to dinner with a party of 6 and everyone except my grand daughter that had (fries!) complained. The best thing the adults had was probably the chips and salsa that they serve on the table. Sadly... More

I am so shocked at how this place gets good reviews. We had eaten here a couple of years ago and did not go back because we didn't like the food. Well, we decided to give them another try because we know things can change for the good. ----- WE WILL NOT BE GOING BACK!!! ----- The food (Carne Asada... More

Visited this restaurant on advice from a girl at the mini golf place. We went at 3 in the afternoon on a Saturday. It was busy...but we got a table quickly. The restaurant is small & the parking could be difficult. If you like authentic Mexican food & atmosphere, this is a great place to go. We ordered a family... More
