We went a little after the lunch rush so it wasn't busy. You order at the counter and pick up your food when ready. Seems to be authentic more than a lot of other Mexican food restaurants. The food was pretty good. The Chili Verde Burrito was huge. My friend had a couple of street tacos and they were good.... More

Fantastic Mexican food for a good price the pork carnitas were fantastic!! Rojo burrito was loaded and not to spicy but there's a great salsa bar if you need more heat. Place was packed but the service was fast.

We put in quite an order for our family, and were really quite pleased with the food and service. I like a bit more cheese than they provided, but the food was hot and fresh! Thank you for a nice family meal!

I took some of my family to this place, and it was really good. I got a chimichanga, which was enormous. Everyone else's portions were also really big, and we enjoyed the food. It's kind of a quick-service set-up, where you order at the counter, and then they call your name when it's ready, so I was a little bit... More

I was skeptical the first time I walked into the strip mall and smelled the sour drink machine wafting through the restaurant. But my fears were quickly assuaged when my friend said two words that changed my life, "Ya Bass". I had never heard of such a concoction and was soon pleased to find out that this staple is the...

The staff was friendly and the service was prompt. The dining area was spotless, the sauce bar was organized, clean, and well-stocked. The food was delicious! We didn't have to wait to be served, and even if we had to, it would have been well worth the wait. This is one of my new favorite places. If you enjoy delicious... More

I had been gone from Texas for 3 weeks and was jonesing for some Mexican food. Found this place on Google. I knew we were at the right place when I saw Tacos al pastor on the menu. They were authentic!!! Not Tex-Mex, like I would have been happy with! Salsa bar with several different levels of heat....I would come... More

Trying to get Mexican food is really a personal choice, if you have grown up with Cal-Mex or Tex-Mex well this isn't the place. But on the other hand if you want to try food from way south of the boarder, then this maybe the place. I had the taco plate and it was tasty, but the meat flavor was... More

We went to this place on a recommendation from a friend. It was so good! I got three tacos and it was like a party in my mouth. All meals come with a basket of chips and they have a salsa bar with various types of salsa, which were good as well. You can choose your hot you like your... More

With the nauseating amount of Costa Rio and Cafe vida's in the area its nice to have some actual MEXICAN food. .First of all the taco plate is amazing. The meat and pineapple go so well together just like from a street cart in Mexico. The nachos al pastor are my new favorite. Its around 8 bucks and it feeds... More
