Have yet to have a poor meal. Everything is good, must get chips and guacamole. Looks like hole in wall but is frequented​ by locals and the Navel graduate students.

This is really a fast food joint, Mexican style. The food is ok, but since they expect you to take it out (there are only a half dozen tables) it suffers from start. There is no décor, and we only ate inside because we were famished.

Went to this Mexican restaurant for lunch. It is a cool, small restaurant with good Mexican food. Parking is limited and the restaurant only holds about 20 or 25 people. It has beer and pretty good food slightly different than you are use to.

This restaurant was very difficult to see from the road, but it was worth the effort. Menu was very simple no thrills and pay for the extras if you want them, don't if you don't. We had the guacamole and the tacos no other adds, and it was the best meal I had the entire trip (4 days) If I... More

We stopped at this restaurant by chance and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. It was delicious and affordable, and the chef made it fresh when ordered. The burritos were huge!

After reading all of the wonderful reviews I wanted to try this place out, but I was very disappointed! I thought I'd read that this place was authentic. It's far from it! I ordered a pastor taco and it didn't even come with cilantro or onions and the salsa was just a bland hot sauce. The meat was good though.... More

Chips & guac (worth the few $), shrimp burrito, and a cold Corona. What are your questions? Trust me, this place is worth a visit.
