“Great Mexican food”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

If you like Mexican food, be sure and visit this little gem when you are in lake Tahoe. The food was fantastic. We ordered taquitos combo plate, chicken quesadilla, beef tacos, etc. They were awesome. Service was totally awesome. I spilled some stuff as I was tossing trash in their garbage and they were so kind about it. We will certainly come back!

“Low key place but GREAT food”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Not fancy. Don't let the outside keep you from trying this place. Food was super. Very friendly owners and a place that we will come back to each time in this area now that we found it! As the other reviews state - its not easy but worth the effort. Just off the main road at the back of a variety plaza. Value for your dollar for sure. Fish taco and veggie tostada was very good. Fast service with hot and fresh food.

“Inexpensive Mexican- Great Value on a Budget”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Classic hole in the wall with quite affordable Mexican. Party of five. Very small restaurant (no table service) with about 8 tables. Late lunch. Order at the counter and food brought to your table. We all had the chicken tacos. Quite good for the bargain prices, especially considering Lake Tahoe hefty prices. Recommended.

“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.
