Only Mexican restaurant in town serving authentic Mexican food. Inexpensive. Yummy. Be advised that you order at a counter and then food is brought to your table.

If you want real good authentic Mexican food in Gainesville, this is definitely the place, I love their salsa and their tacos never disappoint me. As long as I remain in Gainesville, I will keep visiting this place.

Almost eat here while visiting Shands. Previous visits have been excellent. Tonight was different. My wife's green mole over chicken encaladas. The meat in my son in laws beef enchiladas was very tough and extremely hot. Won't return for awhile.
