Ordered takeout and it was ready promptly. Their menu is online & food is always good! Enjoyed tlacoyo & cemitas with chicken this time. It is always great to talk with Lucy, the owner, too!

Great mexican food in Lancaster. Small, family run restaurant very close to Central Market we often go after shopping on saturdays. Delicious mexican food with very reasonable prices. Service may be a bit slow but food is cooked fresh so it is worth the wait....More

A great place to get good Mexican food in Lancaster. A bit small so getting a seat is not guaranteed. Very good food at reasonable prices. Torta Pastor always a winner. Been there many times and never disappointed. Give it a try.
