Easy walking distance from six motels on Indio Blvd. Friendly, really delightful waitress. Went in at 4 p.m. and was the only customer. They said they get busy for lunch and later in the evening, and I have no doubt. I was really hungry and...More

We went to lunch here and it was the best Mexican food I've ever eaten! (and I've eaten alot) The service was real slow so allow enough time because it is worth it. Very reasonable prices too.

We tried La Tarasca last night for dinner. Although skeptical because the restaurant was empty when we arrived, we still decided to give it a try---after all, it was only 5:30 pm. Right decision. The server, Eduardo, is the son of the owners. What a...More

If you like real Mexican food this place is awesome! My wife and I are in town for Stagecoach, ate here twice and will be going back. The homemade tortillas are insane. Prices are cheap and everything we've had was good. CHECK IT OUT!
