Best genuine Mexican food around. People have been coming here since 1963 that I know about and earlier. Tasty hot or mild big portions reasonable prices. You will never stop here and not see a person you know or have known in the past!

I cant have this all the time, not because I dont like it. But because its so-ooo good. El Taquito's Pork Fries, aye-yay-yay, there gonna get you in trouble. They are very spicy, so dont eat them if you dont like hot food, I cant get enough. Generous portion, enough for two.

Authentic Mexican food that's muy picoso. Love their taquitos but ask for the thick guacamole. Great chili verde and chili rellanos.
