We had juevos, enchilada and the fried fish. All were good. Salsa was very good. Prices very good too.

“Best Mexican Food in Simi Valley”
Reviewed 9 October 2012 via mobile

I've tried several Mexican restaraunts in Simi Valley and this one is the best by far. It's small and right next to a Subway sandwich shop, but don't let that bother you. Once inside, you will be warmly greated, seated, and served chips & salsa. The margaritas are big and tasty. I always get fish or street tacos. The fish is fresh and grilled perfectly. You need to get there well before 9 pm, but you'll usually get seated after 9 if other people are still eating.

“Have the Mango Margarita!!”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Little hole in the wall place near Vons. Great value and food pretty good! My girlfriend and I come for their mango margarita which is huge and share! They make it with mango purée and it is WAY good! Their fish tacos are pretty good. Overall, good Mexican food for a great value!
