Enjoy stopping here to take dinner home on occasion. Owner is very friendly and cooks many of the items right in front of you. Guacamole is made fresh when you order. Portions are large and prices are low. Love the El Gordo burrito. Salsa is home made. Don't let the fact that it is tucked in the back of a... More

I went there for the first time today,despite looking at it for over two years. I just didn't know what the food would be like inside a gas station. After living in AZ for 12 years, I had become used to having access to good Mexican food. This is it! Great food in Waupaca. All made fresh. Will be going... More

What a great little place!! Fresh ingredients, delicious tacos and super friendly service. Don't let the location fool you as it's located inside the BP. The owner is so nice too and there daily with his family.

Don't be fooled by its location: in a gas station/convenience store, the food is good and the service is fast

Awesome homemade fresh food daily,amazing Mexican quality food for a financial bargain. The owners are there every day all day themselves. Hard to believe the quality of food you get in the back corner of a filling station .

Authentic Mexican food. Homemade, delicious, fast and friendly. The gas station location may be peculiar but the food is good.

Mexican food at a reasonable price. Their fried taco shells are addicting. The place is tucked away in the BP gas station but it is by far the best mexican in town. We keep a carry out menu at home and call ahead, order, and by time we get there it is done. It takes less time here than going... More

Ordered the specials and it was great! Food was fresh and flavorful. Prices are very reasonable. The burrito we ordered was big enough for two meals! Meat was perfectly seasoned! We will eat here more often

As far as I know this is the only place in Waupaca to get real Gyros. Yum! I've had some of their other food and it is good. Some of it is just sort of there but even those items have fresh ingredients. The biggest down side is the fact it is in a gas station. Oh well, I will... More
