Very good food, and nice people as well. We just had eggs with chorizo. Salsas were home made. We'll be back!

We needed a break from the prices of resort restaurants. This place was an excellent find! Across from Shields Dates place. The enchilada verde was excellent and the burritos were huge.

Takeout or eat in. Very busy family operated Mexican place with about 10 tables inside to sit at. Service is hospitable and genuine. Food is prepared quickly and the traditional way. Flavors are delicious. Simple and satisfying. Beers (bottled), margs, sangria, available. Chip/salsa $1.50 circa....More

Family owned restaurant with great service and tacos. Small place so it can be hard to find a seat during lunch.

This unassuming local treasure serves authentic Mexican food worth a second or third trip on our vacation! The setting is notably clean, the service notably attentive, and the tacos notably OUTSTANDING! Mouth watering, fresh, customized order, great sauces and chips on the side. In short,...More

We loved the taste, atmosphere, and jovial attitude of the owner. I highly recommend trying a variety of meats, though the carne asada was our favorite. The salsa is homemade too. Tacos were higher on the list than the enchiladas, but that really is personal...More
