Authenticity is king here, a lot of Mexicans customers are a great indication that this place is he real deal.... and it is! Lots of flavor and reasonable price, if you like Mexican food this is a great option. The entrance is not very appealing, parking is rough with a car wash in the back and steel fences, but once...

Don't bypass this place. Authentic Mexican food with great flavor! I'm happy to find a margarita that doesn't have too much sour mix. The best horchata. The chips and salsa are very good as well. This is one of my favorite spots!

The prices are reasonable and the food is phenomenal! You can definitly find something here for everyone in the family, including the kids.

Ate here on the last night of our honeymoon in Orlando and was NOT disappointed by anything. Waited roughly 5-10 minutes on a Saturday night. Hands down the best Mexican food we've ever eaten. The guacamole was fresh (would love the recipe) along with the pico, the queso dip was creamy with just the right amount of spice, and the... More

Easy to miss from the outside, and don't let the exterior scare you off. It might not look like much, but I think it's the best Mexican restaurant in the Kissimmee/Orlando area. You know it's good when you see all the locals inside. The staff is courteous, attentive, and friendly, and the food is delicious with good-size portions. Very reasonable... More

I always visit while vacationing from Tennessee. This is simply the best you can get. Delicious food & Frescas. When 90%of the patrons are Hispanic. ... you know it's gotta be great....worth an hours drive for just the cheese dip 😆😆😆

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. My husband and friend decided to eat here for dinner. The staff was excellent. There was a mariachi band playing on that evening. The experience was very enjoyable.
