A great hole in the wall joint with awesome, authentic Mexican food. The food is fresh and not expensive at all. Staff is extremely friendly. You have to time your arrival because limited seating and THERE WILL BE a wait for tables if you arrive at peak times. Well worth it!

First time I've ever had a sopes... Think tostada but with a friend cornbread like base... Really good. All food has authentic feel and taste. Family operation...Husband was cooking while wife waited on us. Super friendly. No alcohol, but good Mexican bottled drinks. Don't expect fancy, but very relaxed atmosphere. Prices are awesome... We'll be back, to their other closer... More

We had steak Burrito, steak tacos, chicken tacos, sopes, huaraches, everything was excellent. They are so nice when you go there and they do a lot of carry out. They are working hard on the remodel.

Good, fast Mexican food. Excellent lunch spot. Portions are large. They provide two sauces for chips, the red is quite hot but it keeps me coming back for more. Quesadilla is more than enough, filled with rice, meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream. Much like a taco but hot and tasty. Add the red for real bite! Lunch with a... More

What a nice find. This is a small restaurant that serves authentic Mexican food. I had the tacos and they were the same as you would get in Mexico. I tried the Carne Asada and Steak tacos. Pries are incredibly reasonable and employees are friendly. I would definitely go back and try some of their other menu items.

After having heard for several years from various sources, that this place served authentic Mexican food, I finally had the opportunity to stop in for a carry out order. I got a steak burrito, and a chorizo soft shell taco. The taco, although not so large, was very tasty with their mild sauce on it. The steak burrito was quite... More

This restaurant is not a good choice for catering. We used them two separate times for a large order for events, but each time we showed up to get the food, they claimed they did not get our order. We called them twice the first time to make sure they had it, and on the second time, we even dropped... More

Visited here for lunch with my 9 month old, family and friends. Very good authentic food plus I felt great taking my baby there. The owner brought out a small bowl of finger food for my baby un-prompted. Overall very pleased.
