I've been trying to find good, authentic mexican food near Disneyland for ages, and I think all my searching has finally paid off. The staff here was awesome, our waiter was super friendly and gave us a ton of great recommendations. I ended up getting the Pork Chili Verde and 2 spicy Margaritas. The Chili Verde was awesome, I could... More

My wife and I have been here a few times. We haven't really been that impressed with the food. The salsas are really not that good imo. I think there are many better Mexican restaurants to go to.

I've already written a review on this place over a year ago, but this place deserves to get the positive recognition again! Every time we come here, we are so blown away by how amazingly tasty and unique the food is here! Just note, that they're almost always busy (and good reason for it!) so be patient. Even dining on...

Ordered the "Ultimate Fajitas" ($18.95) and while good, the portion was small. Peruano beans & rice lacked flavor. Salsa was great. Taquitos were good and a fair value at $8.95 (order = 3 taquitos). Pork Tamale ($3.95) while homemade was not made to order (tasted like it came from the freezer and microwaved; very dry). Small restaurant. Tight, off street... More

Service was great and fast, and all of our food was excellent! We'll be back. I had the tamales plate and left stuffed.

Tucked into a low end strip mall, this family owned Mexican restaurant is a gem find. Many of the recipes were literally handed down from their grandma. Among these are the tamales, which are freshly made each day. While the setting here is super casual, don't be fooled as the food is top notch.

We were greeted by Marbella as soon as we walked in the door. She was happy and energetic as she described the menu and as she answered our questions. We ordered the Chile Verde, Carne Asada and the Camarones Al Mojo de Ajo. They were all very good but the Chile Verde was outstanding. I had the other dipping in... More
