Located past and behind the Safeway gas station. Small strip mall eatery. Three for late lunch. Order at the counter, menu boards hard to read. Very Mexican establishment. Fast service. Tacos were all right, Mexican Coke available. Not bad for a 30-minute lunch window. Food was nicely spicy.

You can't get too much better, especially in this area. Great food, great prices, and great people. We love the carne Assad tacos and the chips & guacamole!
