“Best shrimp burrito ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

The shrimp was spiced to perfection, the tortilla tasted amazingly fresh, and, even though I love salsa, I didn't want to add it because it just tasted so perfect in its simplicity! This is some quality Mexican food. Our friends ordered tacos and they went back and ordered more. This place is small but very clean and the woman at the register was so friendly and patient as we kept adding to our order. I keep thinking about this place and I would love to go back ASAP but I live 3 hours away!

“Very Nice Neighborhood Eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

This place has on site hand made tortillas and they make a real difference. Good quality beef, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, and guacamole made for a real treat. Taurey - the cashier - even tossed in a Seniors’ discount without being asked. The only negative was the taco sauce on the table may have been spoiled. Don’t use the on-table taco sauce and the tacos (though bland if eaten without sauce) are great.
