Came here and got a wet Pastor burrito with red sauce. Burrito was pretty big and had good flavor. The rice was fluffy and the beans weren't too runny. The pastor tasted good as well and the red sauce tied it all together well. I enjoyed the chips with beans and green salsa they give you before your meal. Good quality Mexican food and doesn't break the bank at all. Dine in is sit down service and they have some tables inside and out in front.

well worth a visit for some good food

Taco combo and seafood soup. No drinks. Cost was $27.70. But now they decide to charge $0.50 for a credit card charge so the slip came back showing $28.20 - which is offensive. And the owner expected a tip on top of that! He wants it all - high prices, credit card surcharge, and a gratuity - FOR WHAT? It's Mexican food folks. There are other places.
The atmosphere is zilch. Food is competitive, but the soup had two shrimp, a little fish, and was loaded up with octopus. The broth was nice. I'm not keen on sour tasting shrimp and octopus. The crab was imitation.
I left unhappy. Really, the soup was not up to scratch, and regardless, $28.30 for a soup and a taco plate (no drinks) is very high, especially for a hole in the wall Mexican restaurant.

This is a very small strip mall restaurant and we are usually the only ones speaking English in the place but the food is great and the prices are low. I usually have lunch the next day with the left overs! Plan on watch soccer on the TV while there!

This is a small hole in the wall place, which made me think this would be top-notch. The food was mediocre, we had to send two of our orders back because the chicken was overdone. Please do not waste your time and going here.

Only locals and Latinos in know have the info on this little gem. Located in a strip mall in the corner of oso and Moulton La Rana is the place to go for authentico Mexican food around here. Taco Tuesdays delight with cheap tacos and ice cold draft beer. Beware: They close at 5 on Mondays. Come Sunday for Menudo if you're into that kind of thing.
