“A hidden gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Authentic Mexican food (I am from Veracruz, MEX originally). The guacamole is freshly made and is just as good as mine. The entree portions are generous, be sure to come with a healthy appetite. The staff will go out of their way to please. Be sure to order the flan for desert as you will find non better anywhere.

The ambiance is nothing special, very casual, don't expect white glove service. Restaurant is small with limited seating. Good take out service.

This restaurant is a hidden treasure, if you're in Milford be sure to visit you won't be disappointed.

“Nachos and a Burritos California!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Excellent and authentic Mexican food. Great flavors and fresh ingredients. Helpful and friendly waitstaff. The chef comes out to ask how the food is. Intimate dining experience in a small and charming cafe atmosphere. I am looking forward to the warmer weather when the outside seating looks most inviting. A good selection of cold beverages. There is a very wide selection of both Mexican and other choices. Portion size is large. I will be back, as soon as possible!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Delicious Mexican food and more. They have other things besides Mexican food. They have great panini's. I have had the crab cakes, too. My entire family loves this place. Besides the great food, the prices are great, too. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Best Mexican food I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

It's easy to drive by this place and not even notice it's there, but if you take a seat and try this food, it will blow you away. Everything we ate was delicious. We had potato spinach soup, chimichangas, nachos, and dessert! It was all delicious! The portions are huge, so expect to take some home with you. I will definitely be coming back here again.

“Authentic Mexican in Milford!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

This is one of the best authentic Mexican food I had in a long time, especially for this area.

Family owned restaurant providing excellent service with a nice variety menu.

I sampled the Cuban sandwich, chimichanga, enchiladas, and the Chile rillenos. I am a green sauce fan, and their sauce was excellent. Large portions and prices are reasonable. Very flavorful and not too spicy.

Good for kids...do not worry about the heat/spice content. You can always ask for it to be extra spicy.

They do many takeout orders, but you may also dine in too.

Highly recommend. I will definitely be back! Enjoy!
