The joke we were told is "40 tacos max", I've never seen anyone get farther than 10, if that. The food is hot and delicious! I've taken many people here and they always want to go back. No ketchup or cheese; it's authentic Mexican. The owner has been cooking for over 30 years and he's always just the nicest. Dessert is free ice cream!

The owner is always so outgoing and welcoming. When it's not busy, it's great to have a conversation with him! They even made my tortilla soup for me one day :) Great value and delicious food.... I always eat way more then I should... The flavoured water (Limonada, I think?) and fresh tortillas are my favourite part, other than the friendly staff and enviroment!

We were in Red Deer today and our daughter found this place, as they love Mexican food that is authentic. Turns out it was a great choice! Not a huge buffet but tortilla soup, two kinds of meat -- today was pork and shredded chicken. Both were very tasty! Then there were corn tortillas, beans, corn, tortilla chips, Mexican rice, fried mushrooms and sautéed onions. Then a nice mix of toppings -- salsa, pico, sour cream, etc. All in all it was a very good and enjoyable meal. Service was also very good -- friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning!

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!
