Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We discovered this tiny shack a few years ago after trying many other "authentic" places in the area.

They make absolutely great food with nice portions for a reasonable price!

The shack is in a corner of a parking lot about the size of a coffee stand. Don't let the size deter you or the need to wait 5-10 minutes to order due to the line of cars.

We love their soft tacos with lengua (beef tongue) and their large burritos with pastor (spicy pork). We have also tried their beef fajitas which were also excellent. They have a green and a red hot sauce (appear to be home made) that are both great but we prefer the red since it is hotter. Their refried beans, often a telltale measure of a good Mexican place, are really, really good.

You will often see mostly latino customers (which is a good sign!) but even us gringos appreciate the real deal when it comes to Mexican food.

If you are in the area (Snohomish, Woodinville or Mill Creek) it is worth the effort to check this place out.

BTW, they have a couple of picnic tables under a cover if you want to eat and watch the cars go by on Hwy 9.
