Food is very fresh. Definitely not your typical "Taco Bell" style restaurant. Do not expect to receive chips and cheese dip. It's not that type of Mexican restaurant. I have many favorites to include the Avocado sandwich, Tortilla Soup, Chicken enchiladas, Cheese and chorizo quesidilia....More

My favorite place for Mexican food, period. Nothing else comes close. Queso fundido and elote con mavonesa v cotija are incredible. Do not leave without trying the tesote tea. Perfect drink on a hot day.

Everything on the menu is superb. My favorite is the chicken soup with fresh avocado. The space is small and the clientele is still willing to wait in line to order and find a seat - it is THAT good.

Over priced for what you get. Save your money and go elsewhere. We ate there and then had to go elsewhere because the portions were so small. Unimpressed.

Ate here with friend. As in the past the food is fresh and delicious-fish tacos are the bomb. Family owned and usually busy but worth the wait.

Pepe wrote the book on Fresh & Healthy. No Commissary Truck with frozen or packaged products has ever graced this Parking Lot. I was about to write “The Homemade Chicken Tortilla Soup ($7.95) is to die for!” But considering that I’ve just come from the...More

The Mexican Deli is a fixture in Memphis and you can get all kinds of great things there -- the torta sandwiches are really popular but so are the tacos! I'm a fan of the later and the tacos al pastor here are authentic and...More
