If you want authentic Mexican food, there is no place to go but Amigos de Acapulco! Consistently the best food every time an order is placed. Burritos can be made according to one's palate. Their chips and sauce are the best around! I have been all over two continents, and this Amigos de Acapulco cannot be beat! Period!

Just my opinion, but the best Mexican cuisine on the ridge. Not the most spacious or atmosphere, but if want real Mexican, this is the place. The Al Pastor burrito is numero uno.

Nice family owned taquiria, don't expect much for atmosphere, but do expect excellent food and decent prices.

Carne Asada was so salty and mushy it had to go back... Okay, too bad the best Mexican food in town is from a truck

This is a hole in the wall joint, super tiny, 3 tables tiny- but the food is always good. I'm pretty sure no alcohol is served here, we usually get our food to go. The owner is super nice, affectionally referring to me (and probably all the other young lady patrons) as Mija. Hours are kind of strange. Check before... More

This is one of the most authentic Mexican restaurants in our area. It is small and quaint but down home excellent.

If you are looking for a great To-Go Mexican lunch or dinner, check out this place... It could be the best of the 5 or 6 Mexican restaurants here in Paradise, but it's certainly the smallest and the least appealing atmosphere... So I'm very happy to pick up my super burrito and take it with me for a very good... More

This place is tiny with very poor seating. The food is quite good. I live in town and forget about it sometimes it's so small. I enjoy the food everytime though. The couple who run the place are very friendly and charm of the charm. It's like sitting in a friends kitchen while they coom for you. Like right there... More

This is the definition of 'hole in the wall'. If you blink you will miss it! its a small little eatery. If you get there at the wrong time you wont be able to eat there but you will have to take it to go. Food is served on regular dishes, not paper plates or styrofome. When you look at... More

I loves the vegetarian special burrito here. I know it is not authentic Mexican food but it has some very intense and well balance favor. It is looks like a dive but the food is great.

It's a small Mexican restaurant with only four or five tables, looks primitive, but the food is great: Best Mexican food in the area.
