So we were out and about in Amish country looking for fabric for a quilt. After hitting up Zooks in Intercourse, and Family Farm Fabrics in East Earl, we found this hidden gem on 322. It looked abandoned, except for the neon OPEN sign. We turned into the parking lot (plenty of free parking around back) and entered through the... More

This restaurant dishes out a hearty portion of authentic Mexican/Cuban food and it is delicious! I would have given it 5 stars but I'm not crazy about the atmosphere of the restaurant. It's very small with tables close together and it doesn't remind me to be super clean but maybe that's just my imagination. I would definitely recommend trying this... More

Took my wife here since she's a fan of Mexican food and my daughter and son-in-law said it was really good. They were right. Probably the best Mexican food in the area. Go for the food, not the atmosphere since it's a small restaurant that also is a small grocery store for Mexican type food. I really like these small... More

This is a place to go to for the food but certainly not the atmosphere. You basically are eating in a grocery, even the drinks are from the cooler -- and expensive at that. The food, however, was very good and plentiful. My spouse got the chile rellano which was outstanding, probably one of the best. I got a burrito... More

My husband had a steak quesadilla of which he did not like. I had a chicken quesadilla which wasn't bad. We did not want the pico de gallo and the sour cream, so we asked for a side of regular salsa. You would think that since we didn't get the other sides, they wouldn't charge us for the salsa. Wrong!... More

We went to this place based on TripAdvisor review. We ordered TriedTacos (stake, pork, beef tounge ), Fajitas Piconte. My boys ordered enchilada supreme & today's special Buffalo chicken burrito. Everything was perfect. Never tasted such a tasty fresh mexican food. We conveyed same at the counter. We will definitely going back.

If I judged simply by the food, I'd give this place 5 stars, but the atmosphere is lacking...basically just a portion of a Mexican grocery store turned into a dining area. But they serve very generous portions and the food is delicious. There are no other Mexican restaurants in this area so we were thrilled to find this one. Best... More

Good meal. Food was tasty. Service was nice and friendly. My fajitas were tasty. I would have liked my portion to be bigger but I like a lot of vegetables. The salsa and guacamole were really good.

A family favorite with fresh and flavorful Mexican food. We have eaten here several times and it has never disappointed us. The lunch specials are a great deal, the salsa Verde is awesome, and the tamales and tacos are tasty!

The food is authentic mexican and one can tell. It is very fresh and has a good kick. Try the green sauce! My only problem is there is one waitress who is very rude, and I won't allow her to wait on my table any longer when I go. My last visit she basically threw the menus on our table... More
