Maria is so sweet and her food feels very authentic straight from her home kitchen. Chips are free while you wait and you can also buy to take home. My husband loves the tortas (Mexican sandwiches filled with choice of meat and toppings) and I like their soft tacos.

Did I spell that right? Anyway, casual place, easy to find. Just off I-80 at Foresthill, by the bowling alley. I love the barbacoa tacos, but I've also had their fish tacos, both excellent. They have chips and salsa 'gratis' when you eat there, and their salsa is very good, as is the beer on tap. I've never had to wait long. They also sell misc. mexican items, ie. pinatas, candles, soap, etc. I feel very authentic. Great place.

Took my granddaughter for lunch and ordered tamales- a favorite dish . After a very long wait, we each received one along with some hard rice and dried refried beans. The tamale, when sliced, showed a meat content approximately the size of a pencil lead.. Never again- ever!

Restaurant is good, but but the ambience is excellent. They just expanded and now have a beautiful outside patio. I'd recommend the marinated chicken salad. Margaritas are good as well.
