My friend and I arrived in South Lake Tahoe on vacation around the Sunday lunch hour. We explored So. Lake Tahoe Blvd. looking for a place to eat outside of the gambling area, and stumbled onto this place. It’s a no frills Mexican cafe that...More

We stumbled across this place while looking for something else, and were very impressed. It's a dinky family-run café with no frills, but it obviously attracts the locals. I had a deluxe burrito, and my wife had a chile relleno, and both were outstanding. They...More

Stick to the tacos at this place - decent. The carnitas was a bit dry (over fried) but the carne asada was delicious. Service is super quick and also very inexpensive. The burrito was meh - the wrap was not grilled, and it lacked any...More
