The restaurant is rather small and a little old. But when the pork enchilada came, it was amazing. Wasn't expecting such great taste. Btw, i love the green salsa sauce for the chips. Service was very friendly too. Will definitely return again soon.

We like to patronize local restaurants and saw the favorable reviews on trip advisor. However, beware because everything we had has hot peppers in it, from the guacamole to the tacos. The meat in the beef tacos was like a thick chili rather than the typical ground beef and juices. The restaurant was clean and the waitress friendly, but we're... More

The liquor store is literally next door. The whole family loves this place. Be aware this is a small place so you may have to wait. They don't make their own chips but everything they do make is fantastic. The pork enchiladas are my favorite. The meat is cooked forever in Modello until it is almost creamy with a flavor... More

Excellent food, warm friendly atmosphere, and soft Brazilian music, make for a lovely respite by the Villa Park metra station.

You would never know this hole in the wall in the middle of a strip mall would be so great. The food was fresh and the service was amazing. I got to give it to the one and only waitress for the whole joint Linsey-aka-jalapenio. I see why they call her jalapenio she was on FIRE!!! Running everywhere. She was... More

Nice cozy place to have a great meal with friends, large menu with specials that were very tasty. This place may be a little hard to spot, but stopping is worth while. Diamond in the rough.

Great little restaurant with all scratch made dishes. Husband and wife own and operate the place. Different than your average Mexican restaurant. No liquor license you can BYOB, or head into the liquor store next door and bring something over.
