My husband and I went here for date night. INCREDIBLE! We now go there to eat at least twice a week. We ordered 4 meals and still got it faster than taco bell. Plus it was fresh and delicious. We have done dinner and breakfast....More

The owners of the place are the most rude people. The waitress is no better. The place was dirty and food wasn't that great. Would not return.

Had the stuffed peppers and my wife three assorted tacos and the whole dinner was exquisite. Peppers cooked perfectly, pork moist and well seasoned. Tacos doubled shelled dipped in sauce. Reasonably priced. A Negra Modelo to go along. Great down home atmosphere

I've never been disappointed when eating here. The food is great and inexpensive. The staff is friendly and it's almost always a short wait to receive our food.

Great food. Very authentic homestyle taste. Fresh and fast . Parking is a nightmare. Especially on a busy night.

Like this place, three times here and while not the fastest, they are consistent. My wife and I love the tacos, my son the burrito. We like small hole in the wall taco shops and this one does the trick for us. Could improve on...More

I spend many weeks a year in the central highlands of Mexico, so I know something about Mexican food from that area, though I'm not an expert. When I want an authentic Mexican meal back home in Wisconsin I get it at Taqueria El Palmar....More
