Great food and service. Real down home Mexican cooking, with wonderful charred meats of all types, including organs. Fresh sides and condiments and smiling servers.

This place was recommended to me by a colleague who had not actually eaten there. The place had pictures of the food on the walls. In my experience that means the food isn't going to be good and that was the case with this place too. The food was mediocre at best. I had the Chicken Fajitas. They served them... More

Tacos, burritos, chips and salsa are excellent and the portions are large. Very friendly staff. Living in Florida -... More

We had Margaritas here as they offered a coupon buy one and get one free. The hostess was very nice and helpful in telling us a little about Reno as she lived there all her life.

The burrito was very tasty. We didn't stay and eat there. We opted to go back to our hotel. Unfortunately since we had no fridge or microwave in our room we only ate half of our food. We were unable to put salsa in fridge to keep for our chips. There was ice but you can't be too careful eating... More

After 9 trips to Reno, we wanted to try something different in Reno. This little restaurant is worth the stop. I had (2) steak tacos. The tacos were so stuffed that I ended up using a knife and fork to eat them. Very tender steak pieces and lots of fixin's for the top.

I was skeptical at first then I saw the salsa bar, and all the food coming out to the tables. This place is great, we ordered some carne asada street tacos. They pack the meat in the taco, too much for me I had to remove about half. I love the self serve chips and salsa bar. The flavor was... More
