I am from Texas and not easily impressed by Mexican food. We called Taco King because they deliver and we did not feel like leaving the hotel. Guy taking orders on phone was pretty abrupt. Not rude, but terse. Delivery guy was very abrupt. He...More

This place looks like a complete hole in the wall from the outside. It is counter service and that was unexpected. The food was awesome!! Very pleasantly surprised. Try the guacamole, loved it. The staff was friendly and helpful also.

As usual always good. Ordered a dozen of tamales because we love them. Masa was to thick for a true Mexican tamely and a bit over priced for a dozen. All and all always good food and service.

Don't expect free chips and salsa here- you'll be disappointed. I have never been to a Mexican restaurant quite like this one-I ordered the asada tacos (2) and they tasted authentic. Double corn tortilla, seasoned meat, cilantro, onions served with a lime. If you don't...More
