“Best Place in Santa Elena”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We were in Santa Elena for 3 days and ate there twice. Would have been more if we found it earlier. Worth your time.

“Brilliant tex-mex”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Don't let the long lunchtime queues put you off - this is the best place to eat in Santa Elena. It's not quite up to my high standards but the ingredients are good and the choices are broad. Great veggie options too!

“Eat here!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This is a perfect lunch spot. The vegetarian and pork tacos were excellent, and for a great price! We also got a side of chips and guac, which was very good too.

“Not Bad”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

It's not a traditional burrito or taco. I have had my share of Mexican food, in Mexico, and this is hardly like authentic Mexican food as other reviewers have claimed. It was good but it certainly wasn't the best burrito ever. I would say it's more like Tex-Mex. The burritos / tacos were reasonably priced. The other stuff was over-priced. The chips and guacamole was $4!

For those with young kids, it's not ideal. The seating is right on the street. The seats and tables are quite wobbly and my kids were a bit unstable.

“Best tacos I've ever had”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The title is pretty much how I feel about this place. Cheap, great service and the food is as tasty as in any expensive restaurant in Santa Elena. The portions are big, lots of options for vegetarians and meat-eaters. The guacamole was the best I've ever had, ask for extra!
