Fresh food. Tasty. Authentic. Highly recommended. When you see many Mexicans gather to eat you know it's good food. Clean and well maintained. Not fancy, but excellent food.

I loved the fact that this restaurant has a drive through option (which I chose). The only problem is that you have to have cash on you. They do not accept credit cards....

This no frills place serves up one of the best burrito's in Waukegan area. I usually get the steak burrito, it's excellent! The chips & salsa seem to be homemade along with everything else I've had incl the guacamole. Keep up the great work!
