Don't miss the tamales with green sauce! They have them to go, but they will heat them up for you to eat there too. I could seriously drink that green sauce by itself. I love their gordita's and I always get pork. I love their...More

Very little dining area. People can't understand too much so don't ask for it "your way". Order it and take it the way they make it. Very good food, not a great area of town. Very little parking. Beside a gas station.

Enjoyed a quick lunch here. I had the chicken tacos. It very authentic food so it's not extravagant. I just wish they would have provided some salsa or something to go with it. The price was good and service was satisfactory.

Enjoy special tacos (tortillas with meat), huge burritos, and a great variety. Some rarely seen meats like Tongue are available. The family is quite welcoming and very good cooks. The only disappointment is that there is no reavvy hot hot sauce...

Yes, it's next to a gas station. Yes, there are only 4-5 tables, and yes, the interior could be cleaner and nicer. But, if you can get past those things and just try the food...it's soooo good. Homemade tortillas are delicious. Every time I eat...More

A small location, but this place has the most authentic Mexican food in the whole town. Totally worth the try.

Very good food. However, it's small-next to a gas station-very limited inside seating and parking is a nightmare. Excellent for carryout!
