Ok, I eat at a lot of mexican places and I felt this was excellent. I don't give five stars very often. I got the Fortachon plate which was a mix of a number of meats, shredded with some cheese on top. Yummy!! My daughter got a few different tacos and all were very good flavor meat.

Went here at the recommendation of several acquaintances who love Mexican food... My husband and I went in on a Saturday evening, and the place seemed very busy - good sign! Menu described all of the food, with no prices anywhere. Not too impressed with the place. Seasoning appears to be restricted to chili peppers. My husband ordered 1 chili... More

I hesitate to write this review because I don't want the masses encroaching upon my favorite Mexican restaurant. But, I have to say that this place has the best tacos around...especially the Al Pastor and Veggie Tacos #1 and #2. Their Pozole is amazing too...served with a side of taquitos. Totally bomb...when they have it! I drove 30 miles to... More

This place is perfection. Flavor central. Less beans and cheese, more peppers onions and outstanding salsas that complement the meats of your choice perfectly. Reasonable portions, great service. Could eat here every day!

A regular go-to for us. The meat combos for tacos make your taste buds do a happy dance:). IF you want something less processed try the Tacos Azteca. Leaner but very flavorful nonetheless. Portions are generous.

This place is so unassuming from the outside but wow. The food is absolutely stellar. This is my new favourite place in Ventura. Personal favourites are the potato taco and Tinga tacos. What a treat. Their salsa bar is also fantastic. This place is a must. Excellent prices and the food is to die for. This should become part of... More
