Visited here twice in our short 3 days in Cambria and I can't recommend it enough! Small and simple place but the food speaks for it self! One of the best homemade salsas I've ever had, would have brought it all the way back to Australia with me if I could! The staff were super friendly and great quick service!

Very friendly staff. Affordable prices. That's the best part. Otherwise, we found the food mediocre. Noticed the place is lacking in cleanliness:(. We do not recommend this restaurant.

We had the simplest meal, two been and beef burrito and I have horchata to drink. It was lunch time and there's only three customer. The server or owner is very nice.

My wife usually goes for the soup, menudo on Saturdays or Albondigas on most other days. I like the enchiladas with the red sauce. Mexican sodas available

My girlfriend really enjoyed her tostada (huge) and I like, but didn't love, the tacos I had. It's not a really authentic Mexican style restaurant, but pretty good and the service was very friendly.

Delicious and generous portions. Very authentic dishes served by friendly people. The restaurant is very small with only 5 tables so seating could be an issue. No frills but good food. The burrito supreme and seafood enchiladas are pictured here.

We had the butternut squash enchiladas & the veggie burrito. Both were outstanding. Very fresh and the tortillas are home made and so light! It's a very small place and doesn't look like much from the outside or when you walk in but the food "esta muy bueno!"

Stopped here pretty much in pure desperation after a long drive down the PCH and overestimating the options for a meal. The place looked ok although a bit unkempt and dirty in the areas around the dining area, and the service was fine. The food was mediocre not much flavor for what is hyped as authentic Mexican. The reason for... More

Great, honest Mexican food - obviously freshly prepared in house, you can practically taste the love. They had me with the hot, freshly fried tortilla chips and salsa on arrival, but continued to impress. They have a extensive menu of all of your Mexican favorites, and a 'heat' meter to please all tastebuds. Burritos are spectacular! Great option for take-out,... More
