This was a quick stop on the way to work, and I wish I had allowed time to enjoy the great burrito. It was hot and full of everything I asked for - including salsa. It's an easy place to drive thru.

This place isn't much from the outside, but the food is great! There is always a long line for take-out, which is good since the inside seats about 20 if they are all friendly. So far I've had breakfast burritos, Carne Guisada and Green Chicken Enchiladas, and all were excellent. Great salsa too. Highly recommend this gem on 34th Street.

I went here for a quick lunch based on reviews and it wasn't the highlight everyone is talking about. I ordered the carne guisada burrito and queso. The burrito was a shredded carne with beans... usually I expect chucks of meat & it was really small. The queso was so hot I couldn't eat it (maybe I am a wuss)... More

If you don't like this then you don't know how to eat!! The ambiance is non existent but the food is to die for. If you like spicy, get the green chili pork. It'll light you up but it's worth the pain. Mary and Delores are delightful and work their tails off. It's one of a kind.

If you like menudo, they have the best in Lubbock. The menudo is only served on the weekend but it's definitely worth the wait.

Its a small place but thought it was worth the wait. I had the smothered green chili pork. I would get the meat again but its just smothered in nacho cheese from a can.

The place is small and you might miss it if you aren't looking closely. Parking lot is awful and full of potholes and the building is small and doesn't look very inviting. Don't let all that foot you. Inside is a very clean restaurant. There are not many tables, maybe 6 to 8 at most. The owner Mary Salazar waited... More

I was trying to find a breakfast place that I could go every once in a while and really enjoy. This fit the bill. I've now had 4 different breakfast burritos and can't wait to go back. Small. Not much parking but well worth it.

This is a great little restaurant! They have fantastic salsa and the burritos and dinners are all very tasty. I wish the dining room was larger and that they were open in the evening. We enjoyed our food very much, but may take out next time, so we don't have to wait for a table.

Walking into this restaurant is like walking into a relative's house. The staff are so friendly and just like family. The food is amazing as well. Best salsa I've ever tasted! I will visit again soon!
