Had a nice dinner. Started off with warm chips and spicy salsa. Our server was very friendly and welcoming. Food came out piping hot and portions were more than ample. I ordered a taco and chile relleno with rice and beans. I ate about half of my dinner but only because I had eaten quite a few chips beforehand. Restaurant... More

Was pleasantly surprised to see tongue offered on menu. I love tongue and will order it wherever offered. The tongue was very tender and cilantro and onions were offered as well. My aunt lived nearby and wanted mexican food instead of her usual assisted living fare. Chips and various salsas available as well.

OK for typical Mexican food. Great tortilla chips and fresh salsas, good Fresca drinks. Typical burritos, other entree dishes with rice and beans. Nothing stands out much, but people are really nice who run this place. TV for futboll fans.

When I used to live in San Mateo this was my favorite place to get Mexican food. I still dream about the wet burritos smothered in green chili sauce. The portion sizes were huge and the costs very reasonable.

We have been going to this place for many many years.... The food is great, clean, prices are reasonable, the place is truly authentic, all Mexican personnel, family owned and operated. The decor is non-existent, of course, many people just use it for a takeout, but the food itself is great!
