This was the best quesadilla I ate. Fresh, smokey and affordable cost. Coffee espresso was great too, very balanced taste. Highly recommended!

Good, authentic Mexican food for decent prices. My only gripe was that no one came to see how the food was once it was served or if I wanted another beer. I was by myself and it would have been easy to check on me as they made their rounds through the tables. Small place and cheesy ambience but good... More

Long time beach resident who just discovered this Mexican whole in the wall on the recommendation of a friend. The place in cute, clean and tidy. The food was delicious and fresh BUT they serve the bulk of everything on paper plates; perhaps they think it is kitsch or funky, but it's just cheap.

The decor is cafe style dia de Muertos with a pop art vibe and extra friendly service combined with great food that made South Beach worth the trip! The chile relleno was a cheesy slice of heaven with just the right amount of spice for great flavor and yumminess. The margaritas were tangy with a kick and the mini tacos... More

Great local Mexican Hole in the Wall in South Beach! The food was above and beyond our expectations. All dishes were great with large portion sizes, filling, fresh and tasty. The menu is versatile and vegetarian friendly. The roasted jalapeno is a must for spic food lovers. The smothered burrito, nachos, chili rellenos and bean and cheese burrito are a... More

Very impressed with this place. Authentic Mexican food. I had a steak burrito with refried beans and rice ($14?). My wife had the fajitas ($16). She asked for a couple of extra tortillas and was charged for them though. They do offer you salsas and a fantastically hot chili sauce at no charge. Margs are $8. Coronas are $4.50. Great... More

Went here for breakfast and the service and food were excellent. Inexpensive, particularly but South Beach standards. Small place with only enough seating for maybe 15-20. To be upfront, I love burritos, particularly breakfast burritos. I travel a lot and got hooked on them during my stays in San Diego. Different parts of the country have wildly varying concepts of...

My partner loves Mexican food so we came here and were so disappointed. The service was terrible and the food was boring and bland. The guacamole and the chicken burrito had no flavour. I had the tacos and they were the same. Would not recommend this place

Thank Becky C
