Had an amazing burrito here, the food was great and the prices were really reasonable for this town can be expensive for food. Only wish it was open late so could have gotten dinner here as well.

Really good Mexican food at reasonable prices. You have to order at the bar and pick it up when ready. Apart from that it is quite nice. The food is good and not too spicy.

You order at the counter and then take your food to several benches that are outside the Pension Santa Elena. Good place to people watch.The portions are huge and really tasty, you can takeaway if you want as well..Only downside is they cannot serve alcohol but please don't let that stop you eating here.

I was not mentally prepared for how perfect the food would be when I went to this little restaurant. I was starving after a day of adventure so I ordered a quesadilla and chips and salsa.

This place have the best service in town for sure, the food is delicious, unfortunately I was sick the day we tried the food so I didn't eat much and the guy who run the shop asked me if I wanted my money back, really cool but it wasn't their mistake so of course I paid

The food is delicious! I had the baja fish tacos for one meal and wished I could have more! Another meal I ordered the avocado taco where the avocado was tempura battered and fried. Delicious! There needs to be a larger seating area but other than that it was a great place to dine.

Flavour filled tacos with good value for money, but don't expect service with a smile and sitting options are limited. If the weather is warm, beware of seats by the dustbins as they attract flies

Nice lunch place, quick and tasty food. Taco taco has some nice outside tables and it is really tasty Mexican style food. The portions are big and it is a busy place.
