If you want a tasty, steady and quick lunch at a really good price this is the place. SUPER! By the way the chicken burrito was smashing.

They had our favourite tacos while in Santa Teresa. Not a big place, but we always found a couple of chairs to sit. Probably the cheapest eats we had while in this town. Tacos are between 1200-1500 C . We loved the fish, stewed beef & pork tacos the best. (Fist was our favourite) Highly recommend it if you need... More

This is the most tasty and inexpensive fast food place in Santa Teresa! Get one burrito to get by most of the day, definitely order two tacos if you're going for that!

Excellent food and great service. I had the burrito pescado. Huge. Definitely enough for one person even if you're starving. The server was kind enough to tell me I didn't need to order anything else. Many places here felt a bit overpriced but this wasn't one of them. Excellent value.

This place serves some great fast food. We had the guacamole as a starter, which we saw being prepared on the spot. It was incredibly good! The service was great and they recommended us having two tacos each. We had a taco with shrimp, fish, chicken and beef, and all were delicious. Also the freshly made iced tea with ginger... More

We tried this place in 2013 and fell in love with the tacos and home made sauces. We couldn't wait to come back again and feed our craving after 3 years of looking for another place in Calif that would compare, but we were unsuccessful. We were in the area again for 2 1/2 weeks and had several visits during... More
