I love the food. It’s tasty and not over seasoned. The pozole and burro are my favorites! If the tree leche cake is available, have some. Delicious! Service is friendly and fast.

Friendly staff, good variety on menu. Wait time for food is long but they warn you. Good chips and salsa to hold you while you wait. Burritos are huge!! Very popular with locals.

No little burritos here - they are the real deal - full burros...enough for two or two meals. Friendly waitstaff and generous tasty portions of authentic Mexican fare.

This is a frequent stop for lunch in neighborhood Baywood in Los Osos. The food is always good and can be counted on for quality. Mostly comida casera, especially the white corn tortillas which are almost pastry. Enchiladas are excellent and the fajitas can be...More
