We went for a late lunch and wanted a snack. I ordered marinated port nachos and they were amazing. The order was huge. They came out fast and hot. The staff was so kind and assisted me with my order as I was looking for a recommendation. Price was reasonable for the amount of food I got. Would eat here... More

We stopped in here to grab a quick bite when we got to town and it sure hit the spot! The tacos were great (I had the carnitas...yummy!) and the horchata was excellent. Their pico de gallo was very nice, unless you don't like spicy...there's a fair amount of jalapenos in there. It is a 'hole in the wall' kind... More

Hole in the wall mexican spot with one of the best tortas in town. Their adobada (marinated pork) is unparalleled.

You know a place is good when you see a steady line of people streaming in and... More

I was lucky to find a place with quick service and very delicious Mexican food. I got the tacos, which were plenty grande, and tasty. There is a simple salsa bar, but the verde salsa rocked in a major way. I also had Jaimaca which was refreshing. Nice friendly atmosphere. I went back the next day and ate there again... More

This is true Calif Mexican food. It is fresh, full of people who don't speak English, and cheap. Everything is great.
