Not Tex-Mex but authentic (yes--often colorless) Mexican food. Very (very) friendly staff and great menu. We had chips and a mix of different salsas from their salsa bar, chicken enchilada and tacos. Everything was great. Not fancy buy any means (you get your own soda in a styrofoam cup from the dispenser) but a great neighborhood go-to restaurant for just good food.
You order at the counter and then they deliver to the table. There are 15 or so 4-tops around the restaurant---nothing fancy. Just focus on some real authentic, really good, Mexican home-cooked meals.
I'm sure that we'll be back again soon..

Wonderful food in a clean environment with great service. I love the chicken tacos in a corn tortilla.

I've eaten a lot of Mexican food but this is authenic Mexican Street food. The food is all freshly made to order. I had the beef tacos (cubed and roasted beef) not ground in homemade tortillas, and a chicken quesadilla. The salsa bar is an added feature that contains all kinds of condiments to add to your food. this is a definite must try in the area.

Best tacos in central Florida, possibly the universe. The server Jessica is great and the owner Amador is superb!

This is a fantastic small Mexican restaurant. If you are looking for standard "Tex-Mex" fare, then this is not what you get here.

I have been to Mexico several times in the past, and this is darn close. Great chips and their salsa bar is simply delish. Their beans and rice are great as well.

Yes, it is a "hole-in-wall" but the best places usually are.
