Have to have the Corona with the works! Great place for lunch or just a snack. Great tacos, burritos and seafood. Friendly staff and easy to find on Blackstone Ave the Boulevard of dreams.

The place is nice and small, and the tacos are tasty, although mildly expensive. This is the closest you can get to real Mexican tacos on Fresno. Good eats for a decent price.

Very good food for a very good price! My husband wishes he got another Super Quesadilla with Assada to go! He loved it! I had a chalupa and it was good too! Very busy place, the only gringos in the place so we knew it was the real thing. We visit Mazatlan a lot and it made us feel like... More

Best fish tacos I've ever had and I've had a lot of fish tacos! Shrimp tacos were equally amazing...very large shrimps and perfectly cooked.

Nothing special on the outside nor the inside and AC was having a tough day. But the food was really legit authentic Mexican food. Large flavorful portions and a nice staff.

My experience with the Al Pastor and fish tacos was great. The al pastor was perfectly cooked, crispy with a little pineapple! Even on Sunday night there was a line of customers so long they were coming out the door. The word must be out that this is one of the best Mexican food spots around!

We had a large selection of tacos. Most of the components were excellent. However, the salsa which is the soul of Mexican food lacked that zing of freshness that distinguishes the great salsa. Otherwise great authentic food with friendly service.

We went during lunch. The place was full. You place your order at the counter and they bring it to your table. You fill your drink (they use Styrofoam cups), get your salsa and select the table. We ordered enchiladas and the shrimp botano. Neither was good. Plus, the food was lukewarm and the shrimp was tough from being overcooked.... More

And all I can say is wow! It was fantastic! I had the shrimp cocktail, it had about a dozen shrimp in it! It was so delicious! Also had the shrimp tostado it was just as wonderful. The nachos are also amazing! A must try!

Excellent menu! Even though the building is nothing to speak of, what comes out of the kitchen is superb! Try the shrimp botana and jamaica! Super fast service! Bilingual!
