This is was an excellent taqueria! Even my husband who doesn't like Mexican food enjoyed the chicken quesadillas. I had the fish tacos with tilapia. The quesadilla portion size was huge. The fish taco portion size was relatively small but delicious.

small "hole in the wall' with attentive service, the food truly authentic and tasty. Large menu and many drinks available(no alcohol). About 20 seats, food comes quickly and has all the right flavors and tastes.too bad the tv left on.

Always need to stop by this place when passing thru. I love the fish taco platters: all ingredients are fresh. Their side sauces are tasty & just enough amount of spiciness. Bring cash- no credit card.

The seasoned shredded pork tacos were very good and the shredded chicken Enchiladas were outstanding. Great homemade guacamole and freshly made chips. Both the green and the red sauces were very flavorful.

I love this place. It is inexpensive and the food is fantastic! It is how every Mexican restaurant in the US should be. It is a tiny family friendly atmosphere.
