Review is strictly on their tacos!

We had 4 different types...
+ground beef (good)
+fish (good)
+carne asada (good)
+shredded beef (the best) very moist, meat had a lot of flavor. Tacos contained lots of onions & cilantro...perfect!

Their salsa was also good!

Service:
Friendly staff.

*Note
They have every type of taco you can imagine:
Tongue, cabeza, birria, pastor, carnitas amongst others.

The staff are very friendly and they serve up excellent mexican food at great prices!! Large menu, lots to choose from, the salsa is excellent. Seems like alot of locals eat here. Located in a strip mall close to the airport, this is a simply decorated restaurant with not a lot of ambience. However, they more than make up for this with their friendly service and great food. We will eat here again on our next trip to Palm Springs.

A local "joint" staffed with very nice people who take great care of you. The food is inexpensive and delicious. Great variety with some unusual choices. Try the Torta Ahogada, which is a Mexican sandwich dipped in enchilada sauce. The burritos are huge and you can get them covered with enchilada sauce or cheese. I enjoy the chilaquiles for breakfast, but they are terrific any time of the day.

The food is made to order and does not come of a steam table like the food in the large restaurant chains.

Tired of mediocre and overpriced Mexican food on the main drag, we got into our car and a couple of miles to a strip mall near the airport. We tried this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. While the inside of the restaurant is nothing fancy, it is clean and bright.

Even though the restaurant was full (mainly locals), we were served almost immediately. Our drinks were accompanied by chips and good spicy salsa. Main courses were large, tasty and very well priced. Wait staff kept coming over to make sure we had everything we needed. All in all, a very satisfying experience for about $20 a couple. We will likely return before we leave PS.
