We had spent the day at Everglades National Park and needed a quick, simple dinner. This place was perfect: tasty tacos, cold beer, and a salsa bar. We ordered the family platter of 12 tacos and split them between us: they were all excellent. They're open late, so if you're done at the Everglades and looking for a place to... More

My wife and I went for lunch, we ordered chicken burritos,with a side of avocado and a side of rice, beer and a coke. The place is very clean, run by a mother daughter team I think. Service was quick. We were also given a basket of corn chips and they have a salsa bar with at least ten different... More

Don't expect a high-class looking expensive-looking place. Do expect very high quality Mexican style original flavored food. If you are looking for Original Mexican food in a non-stressful environment this is a great place to stop at.

Came here with my husband for tacos that were supposed to be really good, but ended up being disgusting. I have to say, as a Hispanic I have had many, many tacos and am always on the look-out for good tacos; I guess you can call me a taco connoisseur. These were the WORST tacos I have ever had. We...

Love this spot; best Mexican food for miles around, and I go way out of my way to eat here. Try the Alambres, you'll take half home.

My boyfriend ate here a few years ago when he was doing some work in Homestead. Raved about the salsa/toppings bar. We were coming back from a trip to the Everglades and he was dead set on finding it again. Don't let its location adjacent to a gas station deter you, it is delicious. A simple menu with fantastic food.

We stopped at Robert's Is Here and had the shakes and fresh produce and needed something else and checked this place out and it was great, people friendly and the price was right! #livelifelocal

We stopped there on our way back from the keys. Tacos were excellent. Don't expect a fancy restaurant. It's a whole in a wall BUT tacos and salsas are soooo good. The aguas frescas are great. Horchata was really really good. The tacos de lengua (tongue tacos) were very flavorful. It's an experience for sure

Thank Nanita65
