Loved this restaurant! Definitely a hidden gem in Red Deer, as it is a little tricky to get to. Got $15 you get all you can eat traditional tacos, make your own tortilla soup--amazing--chips, salsas and ice cream! Their homemade lemonade is perfect to cool down with. Family friendly, they make you feel at home!

Was invited by a group of colleagues to go for dinner and not being someone to pass up on authentic Mexican tacos, when I read the other reviews I had to go.

I was so happy that I did. It is a small family run place. The service was terrific and very genuinely friendly. The owner is from Guadalajara and this is authentic Mexican taco.

For only $15.00 you can have all you can eat tacos and ice cream. Unlimited lemonade was only $1.65. There was 6 people with me and everyone loved the food. It was hot, fresh, and very flavourful.

It is a little hard to find if you are not from Red Deer but well worth the adventure of finding on one way streets and confusing navigation.

I will go again when I'm Red Deer.

Sorry for no photos this time. I was too busy eating tacos.

this is a pretty small place so I'd recommend a reservation if you're going in peak hours. It's a simple buffet so there's no menu but quite a few options and it's all delicious. You can make your own tacos or skip the taco and just have a plate of food. They keep the spice level down but you can add your own. They didn't have their liquor license when we went but said about 2 weeks. I will definitely be back
