A free cup of soup with every order. I usually live on the Mexican Mainland nine months out of the year, and am used to good traditional Mexican food. What I find is that most Mexican restaurants copy their menus from Baja, which is more bland in nature , or they modify the menus to please their "Gringo" patrons. All... More

This restaurant catered for a conference I was attending. They were very professional and the food was good. Our requirements were pretty simple but they made a great meal for us.

I have had a lot of awesome authentic Mexican food and this was nothing special. My husband and son ordered tacos and it came with only the meat and tortilla, rice and beans on the side. So garnishments (it was to go). They said it didn't taste very good. Will not go back.

These guys know how to make authentic Mexican food with plenty of flavor. Their food is fresh, satisfying to the palate and good for the wallet. They serve promptly and the meals are not skimpy but not huge either. Just right. On a freezing night with arctic winds blowing down on the Tahoe Basin from the snow-capped mountains, one needs...

An authentic taqueria with awesome food. The price was perfect and my chicken torta with panela cheese was good and filling. The gal even filled my jamaica without asking, which is rare nowadays.

I felt as if I wanted a large tostada with tons of lettuce so when we saw this "hole in the wall" Mexican restaurant on a side street, we decided this was the place to eat. I do believe that we were some of the few non-Spanish speaking folks in the restaurant. What we got seemed unconnected to what we... More
