Get their breakfast burritos. You won't have to eat the rest of the day! Conveniently located in strip mall on McDonald Rd, near 101.

Been here many times ( once out twice a month for 6 yrs)! My favorite taco shop hands down. Best beans, guacamole, chips, everything! Carne asada is my go to burrito, you won't be disappointed! Rolled tacos are awesome too. Love the hand grated cheese they top everything with and the sauces add an extra hint of flavor.

No surprises or unique items here...just an outstanding spot for quick, but homemade Mexican fare. My family sampled tacos and burritos filled with chicken, pork and beef. All were fresh and tasty. Their chips were warm and crunchy, with excellent guacamole to accompany them. Make sure to ask for extras of their homemade hot sauces before you walk out the... More

I love this place so much. And everyone who visits me (and I end up taking) loves it too. Best breakfast burritos that will last you until dinner, but also best rice and beans, chorizo, enchiladas, you name it. Try out the red and green salsa's too! Enjoy!

If you are looking for fast, inexpensive, and good tasting Mexican food place, this is your spot. I had the enchiladas and super nachos, both were fresh as well as good tasting. Great little spot.

Maybe thats an exaggeration because the taco shells were home made. The amount of grease and terrible feeling after eating one were overwhelming. I do not recommend trying this place. Just let it die as I thought I might while trying to digest what they served. Uggggh!

Previous reviewers are right about locals eating here. We saw a collection of Hispanic workers as well as Caucasian white collar office workers stop in. Although in a very nice strip mall the interior resembles a diner from the 60s. We had the daily special of 3 beef taquitos covered in very good guacamole, rice and beans. I saw a... More

This food was flavored with dish water. Flavorless flavorless flavorless. Asked for grilled chicken taco but received boiled nasty chicken. The carne asada was cremated. Do yourself a favor and unfavorito this place forever. Go to the local grocery store next door for a delicious frozen pizza instead.

This is a surprising little place in strip mall. I had the sausage breakfast burrito for lunch and enjoyed it tremendously. It was probably the best breakfast burrito I have ever had.There are a lot of traditional Mexican dishes on the menu and the prices are very reasonable.

I really wanted this place to be above average. It wasn't bad but it could have been much more. The $8.50 burrito was slim and the rice and beans just barely filled the little Styrofoam sections. There was plenty of traffic in and out and the service was very fast. If you have time Los Betos a few miles south.... More
