Simply put, this evening I had the best burrito I’ve ever had. Absolutely delicious. The best. Reasonable prices and a smiling and totally approachable young waiter who was patient with my pathetic attempts at speaking his language. The margarita was excellent - and at 20Q...More

This is a solid place to eat. The prices are cheaper than touristy traps, but the quantity is slightly less than I've seen at local spots. I would eat here again. Q22 for a veggie quesadilla, simple salad, and a small glass of jamaica.

Good Mexican food with generous portions. A bit more expensive than other places in town but with the quality and portion size it was worth it. Small dining area - expect to be close to others. Cash only - be prepared.

Tried to go to Cactus but they weren't open yet. Walked in here and pleasantly surprised. Had a combo burrito and and a margarita. Burrito was delicious and margarita was ok. Two young waitresses were nice.

We were on our way to another restaurant but were so hungry, we went in here. The menu was in Spanish, which we don't speak, so we both ordered the vegetarian burrito (which was easy enough to decipher.) It was fantastic! Homemade tortilla and all!

food was fine, atmosphere was a little lacking. PERFECT for a lunch place, or casual dinner. We enjoyed the burrito with three types of meat

Coming here made me happy...simple, good and inexpensive. I was here on a quiet Sunday lunch and the service was nice (although missing some skills on knowledge of menu) and the food was fresh. Nothing fancy, but a good option for affordable mexican in town.

A Guatemalan friend took us here for our first dinner in Antigua - truly some of the best quesadillas that I've ever eaten. The servings were large and the burrito my friend ordered was hanging over the plate. I enjoyed it so much that I...More
