We had been recommended to go here for really authentic Mexican. Well it might be authentic to some but it had no flavor in the fajitas or the burrito. I added lots of hot sauce but otherwise had no spices

Great food and great service every time we visit! Love it! My burrito was a little cold (the lettuce and sour cream are in the center) but I asked for extra red sauce to poor over it and it was fine! We took some friends there a couple days later and they were very impressed. Don't miss it! You won't... More

Found this little restaurant from a friend. You walk through the grocery store and into the back which has about a dozen tables and booths. The place is clean and the staff is so friendly. The food is like home cooked. It's delicious, and authentic. I loved it, and will be back. I got enchilada suizas and they were so... More

Ran in one day very quickly to Pick up some pastries, but ended up.spending about an hr. I bought meat, rice, tortillas,candles and my lists goes on. The ppl are super friendly and helpful, as I only speak English. Now I visit all the time.

First off before we ordered they serviced us chips which were so hard you could all most bust your teeth on. I asked if that was normal and the server said yes. The place should have a warning EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK. For a first timer that was a bad start. I had shrimp tacos which had a OK... More

My husband dearly loves really spice Mexican dishes..and he decided to try this new dish..He damn near licked the plate..and he would NOT let me taste it because it matches the name Diablo..IT WAS HOT! BUT, the seasoning was such that you could taste everything without the heat destroying it. The waitress told him it was very spicy, and it... More

Finally got around to taking the wife with me to taste some of the very best Mexican fare around. No frills, authentic "south-of-the-border," Mexican food. I had the Enchiladas, while the wife tried the tacos. Spicy food upsets her, so I was holding my breath - the waitress got it RIGHT, and we enjoyed some very tasty food.
