Came to this restaurant as a little hole in the wall, and now has expanded in a new and larger location. Normally I'll get chorizo, huevos for dinner. We tried the cheese enchiladas and pork tamales. All meals were very hot and tasty. The pork tamales were moist and tender. The hard shell tacos were stuffed with healthy portion of... More

We went with another couple, it was our first visit there. Place was packed but moving along quickly. We were seated, and got drinks brought to us from the bar by our server. Very good. Our food was great, our server was attentive. It was a real busy place, lots of people............. so it was kind of loud in there.... More

Hands down the best authentic Mexican food I've ever had. And SUPER cheap. Their tacos are incredibly unique and definitely a favorite. I've eaten here over 10 times and have not had one single bad dish. Service is impeccable too- very knowledgable staff. Salsa is the best I've bee tried and the Cadillac margarita is special!

I was so impressed with this restaurant. It is quaint but comfortable. The menu is full and even more so because they accommodated my vegetarian tastes, creating a special vegetable quesadilla with light cheese. Every single thing was wonderful!

Almost feel bad about giving this restaurant only 3 stars because it was good but nothing really stood out. Chips and dip, food, drinks and service were all good, much like most other Mexican restaurants. However it is located in a small strip mall and the interior is kind of plain, nothing to really make it stand out. If you... More

The food is decent and service is ok. The place is very small so it gets overcrowded quick and is very loud. The shrimp tacos are good. The tamales are ok. The queso is really good. But overall it was an ok experience.

Overall unimpressed with the food. Ordered three of the authentic tacos. All three had a lack of flavor not often found with authentic Mexican food. Service was equally as bland, failure to get refills and lack of overall service leaves much to be desired. Perhaps there are items on the menu that are better, but it is doubtful I will... More

They must have someone's grandma in the back making the tortillas because they taste that fresh and homemade. I like the variety of the three different meats, and the duo of sauces are what adds a real kick. Love the red one, it's super hot.
