The staff is always friendly. The food is always great. I always place my order 15 minutes before I get there and then sit down to eat. When I finish eating the best tacos in town I buy bread and pastries and meat to take home. Great home like place to eat. Nothing fancy but great food.

I can't say enough about how delicious the food is here! No fancy restaurant - there is a food counter and a few tables in the back of a mexican convenience/bakery/meat store. Everything is good and their salsa makes it even more delicious! It is also very reasonably priced (4 tacos for $7). The bakery items are cheap but super... More

Amazingly good Mexican food. I ordered the asada tacos and chicken flautas. Huge portion sizes, good prices, very fresh. I was a little intimidated by the ordering process since I don't speak spanish, but the cashier assisted me in making sure I got the correct order after it was completed. I purchased some delicious chorizo from the meat counter to... More

A little place with a small deli counter, unassuming especially in North Carolina, but go eat their food. You will not regret it. You can't go wrong with anything here, although knowing a little Spanish can be helpful as not many people working there speak English. That being said they are very nice and will help you out in ordering!... More

This is a most unusual establishment. Set in a new brick building is a butcher shop, grocery store, bakery, and eatery, and the most often spoken word is in Spanish. As my title states, the business is enjoyed by persons of a wide variety of ethnicity and income levels. Our granddaughter took us out to lunch there. We ordered the... More

My Mexican friend introduced me to this establishment and I am very impressed. The prices are ridiculously low and the meat is all fresh from the butcher shop on the premise. The portions are enormous. Excellent chorizo!

I was taken here by a friend from work and I would never have found it if not taken there. The restaurant is actually in the back of a Hispanic market. Be aware that it gets VERY crowded for lunch so go early also brush up on your spanish numbers because you get a number with your number and they... More

The food is delicious! You can't get a more authentic taco or torta any where else! Their sweet bread is delicious as well and they have a good variety.

There are some outstanding food choices at this combination butcher shop/grocery store/bakery/Mexican grill or taqueria. There is fresh meat(some cuts and varieties a little off main stream) and cheeses, baked goods, canned goods, and at the back, the grill which offers some excellent items - sopas, stews, mexican shrimp cocktail, roasted chicken Mexican style, gorditas, flautas, tortas (sandwiches), pig skins...
