Great little find. Cash only. Tacos were fresh and delish. Burrito was very good. Guacamole was super fresh. Great find!

The food was fine but just because it's next to a back packers lodge, do not expect it to be super cheap. Just normal prices, I would say.

Great veggie burritos for three of us. The salsa was tasty. The pork and pineapple burrito was also very good. Great street side atmosphere for taking in the hustle and bustle of Santa Elena.

Had the beef quesadilla to take away. It was freshly made and was excellent. Didn't take long either.

This is street food at its best! The carnitas tacos and the fried avocado tacos were both amazing. No alcohol but plenty of soft drinks to choose from. Mango madness was slushy minty refreshing goodness. The burritos we saw also looked amazing. Delicious homemade salsa and chips. We will definitely go back at least once more this trip!

Girl friend and me went for small snack (nachos with 3 sauces) which was nice. Relaxing place to chill Down with some food and a drink. Good place if you like dogs

Some of the best food in the city! And, a great place to sit and have a quick bite to eat. We went twice while on vacation :-)

If you want a quick meal on the go with local flavour and good price, this is your place. All versions of tortilla + stuffing. A word of warning, the taco pancake was quite soggy but my burrito was pretty good.

Order at the window, find a (mostly outside) table and wait for them to call your number. The food is good, generous portions.
