Quick lunch today, a large burrito al pastor with rice and beans. choice of several salsas, bottle of Coke. Menudo rico on weekends, usually lengua. They don't pretend to be fancy, it is just good food for a reasonable price.

Don't judge the book by it's cover!! After reading someone's review on Trip advisor, we decided to go to this restaurant. It looks worse for the wear on the outside..like a very neglected fast food place. the food is delicious and the selection is pretty amazing. There are two women working behind the counter. I can't imagine how they do... More

Went here with my gf just traveling through carson city on our tahoe trip and it was pretty pleasant. My girlfriend got a carnitas torta while i got the pescado ala diabla. I loved my fish!

Almost as good as being in Mexico. Authentic Mexican fare. Generous portions. One burrito is a meal in itself. Salsa made on site...not from a bottle. To experience Mexican food without going to Mexico, you've found the place.

I was pleasant, but the cook and the lady taking my order MADE A POINT to treat me rudely. I read people well, and I'd say this was race related. I was foolish to eat my meal, but I won't make the same mistake twice.

The Jumbo Carnitas Burrito-enough for two to share-is the best on the planet. Good assortment of sauces and stuff to put on yourself. It's five bucks, but weighs a ton. Ambiance is akin to roadside restaurants in rural Mexico. Service is fast and friendly. Se toma Cervesa

The burritos are great here. My son's favorite place for burritos. You can eat in or take out. We prefer to take out because the burritos are wrapped very hot in foil which gives the tortilla time to get really soft and yummy.

I wanted to try some mexican food for a change. I ordered a chicken soup which wasn't that bad, but too much tomatoes in it. The burrito was just another average oily one, and the tacos not bad either.

Was a old Taco Bell building, but now a real Mexican restaurant. Indoor seating,. You go up to the counter and order your food, and bring it to your table. The real thing! We love their burittos and everything is priced right. Recomended!
