This place is closed - not sure why. The food was good and a lot to choose from. Bummer. Sign in the window says possibly a soon to be pizza restaurant

This is a perfect spot for large groups, great prices and awesome food. The $2 street tacos are awesome and hard to beat. Lots of meat options but the carnitas is hard to beat. Great staff, amazing prices and perfect for après ski burrito / tacos.

I have had good tacos and burritos in the past. This place has neither. The ingredients sit uncovered all day long. Walk in and the only employee in sight is staring at her cell phone. I ordered a "regular burrito", beef and asked for no rice or beans. She looked at me like I had two heads! No beans or... More

Great place at the west end of Truckee. Kind of a locals hangout. Good fish, good burritos. Worth a visit.

Had a great taco salad with carne asada, lots of it and lots of supporting veggies and salsa. This is definitely not your taco bell!

This is a small place with counter ordering. We ordered a burrito, taco's, and guacamole. While the chips were good, we kept pouring salsa onto our meals to give them some flavor. The guacamole was salty. While the place was cheap enuf, the food was just a little below average and bland. Would I go back?? I don't think so.

On my way to I-80 for the drive back to San Francisco, I happened upon this place by the side of the road. They had a pretty extensive menu but from what I saw didn't have much in the way of combo meals, or plates with rice and beans. Everything was ala carte. There's only one type of burrito, 8.75...

After a beautiful day hike outside of Donner Lake we 4 drove into Truckee for something to eat. Mexican is always a crowd pleaser - not this time. The "carnitas" were not slow cooked, seasoned, or carnitas. The average to poor tasting meat was the consistency and color of a pork chop. The adabado was lackluster. The mahi mahi taco... More

Stopped by and had some Tacos and Burritos. The Burrito is HUGE. The Tacos are nice and tasty with lots of condiments you can add. The chips are fresh and have a nice corn flavor. Nice outdoor seating area with umbrellas. Great find in Truckee.

They assemble your tacos burritos etc to your specifications, and are generous in doing so! My fave is the fish tacos! Picnic benches outside for a nice casual meal! Away from bustling downtown so you can always find a place to park!
