Great local Mexican Hole in the Wall in South Beach! The food was above and beyond our expectations. All dishes were great with large portion sizes, filling, fresh and tasty. The menu is versatile and vegetarian friendly. The roasted jalapeno is a must for spic food lovers. The smothered burrito, nachos, chili rellenos and bean and cheese burrito are a... More

Very impressed with this place. Authentic Mexican food. I had a steak burrito with refried beans and rice ($14?). My wife had the fajitas ($16). She asked for a couple of extra tortillas and was charged for them though. They do offer you salsas and a fantastically hot chili sauce at no charge. Margs are $8. Coronas are $4.50. Great... More

Went here for breakfast and the service and food were excellent. Inexpensive, particularly but South Beach standards. Small place with only enough seating for maybe 15-20. To be upfront, I love burritos, particularly breakfast burritos. I travel a lot and got hooked on them during my stays in San Diego. Different parts of the country have wildly varying concepts of...

My partner loves Mexican food so we came here and were so disappointed. The service was terrible and the food was boring and bland. The guacamole and the chicken burrito had no flavour. I had the tacos and they were the same. Would not recommend this place

We walked by and were starving - the place looked cool and authentic. We had a huge enchiladas and a taco - both were very good and exactly what we expected.

A lovely authentic little Mexican place, far cry from many of the tourist traps we'd been to. Very authentic, fantastic breakfast burritos and great home made horchata.

After a 10 hour flight, hours spent in line at the airport and a 1000 meter swim fighting the waves we were really hungry. The service was fast and the food is delicious. Fresh, clean and tasty. However the tables are very sticky, should make sure to wipe these better because it creates a dirty feel. The prices are correct... More

Wife and I were in town and had to have some good tacos since it was Tuesday. This is a small local spot that was great. Started with chips and salsa which was full of flavor just the way it should be. Wife had the chicken taco's and I had one of each (steak, chorizo, pork & chicken) would have... More

We stopped by just to get a little taste of something new. Ohhhh and it's good, very good. I love the inside, it's very small but beautiful inside. Once you get inside you could care less how small it is. The waitress is very nice.
