“Tough to find, worth it”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

We've visited SLT many times and fancied trying something new one night during our recent trip. My wife found this place on Yelp, I love Mexican food...off we went. It's not that easy to find in American terms - in reality it's just off Tahoe Boulevard, turn at Rojos(don't go in there) and its just round the back, adjacent to the martial arts club. It's quite dark, not well lit. Once you find it, the entrance is full of chillers that have real Mexican beer brands that you wouldn't find in a regular Mexican place. Menu is small and easy to understand - we were v.hungry, decided on burritos. They turned out to be huge, delicious and at only $6 each were a ridiculous bargain when compared to almost anywhere else in Tahoe. Beers are (I think) only $3, a great deal - fill yer boots. Chips are authentic and salsas are too(green is quite hot) both are complementary. Staff are super friendly, decor is basic but homely - its not too warm, bring a coat...or two. Although we only tried Burritos we can say that this place is totally awesome - its a locals secret, very reasonable prices, tasty as hell. My new fave Tahoe spot.

“Excellent, authentic Mexican food”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

This is the real deal if you want real Mexican food. Everything was homemade, served quickly, and the food was amazing. It may look like a dive, but the food was great.
