We are locals & our "go-to" restaurant is here. Renamed "jalepeno crab" and now with Asian food too, it is still the best Mexican food in the Baltimore area! If you want good food, this is the place.

Fantastic Mexican food at a great value. Location in a strip mall in Glen Burnie doesn't make you expect much, but prepare to be pleasantly surprised! Carnitas, Carne Asada, and authentic tacos are all excellent. To be honest, I haven't found anything here that hasn't...More

$5.95 combo plates and $2.50 Coronas?!! What's not to like?! Authentic Mexican; recommend trying the Pupusas. They're flat deep-fried dough patties filled w. ground pork. Their homeade salsa is good, just needs a little heat and a litle more cilantro. Homeade chips are perfect.

Real Mexican food, about $10/entre. Get the carne asada. Friendly and good service, just point to what you want on the menu if the waitress doesn't understand every word you say. Amazingly good singer there on Saturday nights who takes requests, worth going for that....More
