This place is legit. If I want tacos or the like, this is my choice restaurant every time. The best guacamole in Greensboro, maybe the whole triad. Chimichangas, traditional tacos, and everything else I've tried are the real deal. If you have at least three in your party, get the Molcajete, you'll be glad that you did. Plenty of beer... More

I should have gotten around to this a LONG time ago. My wife and I have made this our go-to Mexican restaurant for nearly three years. We probably go once or twice a month after church and always remark how good (and inexpensive) it is. We rarely stray from the lunch specials menu--hard to resist these simple but so well-prepared...

Everyone I know said this place was the best Mexican in town. I had been meaning to try it but never got around to it until yesterday. All I can say is wow. From the salsa to the entree, great fresh flavors. Friendly servers, very reasonable prices. This place isn't really big, and gets crowded quickly around lunch, so come... More

We went here based on Yelp reviews - it actually had the highest rating. Staff was friendly, prices were fair, and food came out quickly. It was good but it wasn't anything that blew me away with flavor. I felt like it was pretty standard Mexican cuisine, and would be a consistent eats if I were local.

Handmade tortillas, the BEST Guacamole on the planet. If I could only eat one thing the rest of my life, it would be their guac.

I'm not sure about the other food, because I found my one true love at this restaurant. Al Pastor tacos. Chips are fresh and the salsa is tasty. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming. The price of everything also hits the spot.

I'm not in Greensboro often, but whenever we are THIS is the place I want to go. If I lived nearby, I'd be a regular. Service and food are fantastic every time, everything is very reasonably priced. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

This was my first visit to this restaurant which is halfway across town but I wanted to give it a try due to the great TA reviews. My three person order was ready for an on-time pickup.
