So good! Visiting for the concert, trying to fill up on the cheap...carb action. I was really surprised at the quality and authenticity of the food. I was so good. I had the cheese enchilada and beef taco combo with black beans and rice for $13.95. First of all, I love that black beans were an option, and second of... More

Good service and ceviche was really good. Didn't blow my socks off, food was average. Visited because so many raving reviews on another website. Its good, just maybe not as good as I wanted to think. I'd go again -

First of all, the decor is worth the trip. Everything is about the legend of Montezuma. I had the shrimp tacos, each $3.50, big juicy shrimp, great sauce, crunchy cabbage, fantastic. My friend had a taco al pastor, and a chile relleno, both very good. Loved this spot, will be back,

Had lunch yesterday with my wife in this little Mexican Restaurant. Food was very tasty! green Chilaquiles with eggs were terrific. a bit spicy but very good. my wife's chicken enchiladas were also good. The place is nicely decorated with photos of the Teotihuacan culture (a pre-Columbian city located in the State of Mexico) and vivid colors. I was surprised... More

After reading the reviews, this place sounded just like we wanted - casual with good food. So I dragged my dad and brother here for dinner. When we got there some ladies were walking out and said there was a better Mexican place down the street. I convinced my family to stay here. I’m glad we did. We had a... More

Had a carnitas taco. Good service. Carnitas a bit fatty. But pretty good. In a strip mall behind the USA gas station

I had beef tongue, al pastor, and pork stomach . Great fish tacos. Wonderful salsas. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but well... More

A wonderful evening. Visiting from Austin, Texas I took a chance on this smaller restaurant based on reviews on tripadviser. It's located in a strip shopping center and a little hard to locate. Don't let the store front fool you. They advertise a take out taco bar but connected is the quaint restaurant nicely decorated with Aztec art. The salsa... More
