Back in California for the first time in 2 years and totally craving GOOD Mexican food. I was on the hunt specifically for good tacos....they're just hard to find on the east coast! So I pull of the 101 and find this place. It's the middle of the afternoon on a Tuesday and the place is almost empty but the... More

Like walking into the perfect hole in the wall. Great Street food, quick and reasonable price. Great little salsa bar...don't let it fool you, flavor trumps size!

Very unappealing cheap taco cart food. Just isn't very good. However, it's cheap and it's Camarillo, so...

My wife, son, and I used to go here on a regular basis, especially on taco Tuesdays. The $1.00 tacos along with the chips and salsa bar made it a good value.

I always go for the carnitas burrito - ask them to grill the meat extra crisp. While waiting i have a bowl of the pickled carrots. They also have pickled potatoes. But the carrots are best. There is nothing fancy about this place. Its a mix of anglos and mexicans at the counter. Just good mexican food.

The Mexicans eat here. This small and hidden restaurant will surprise you with the quality of its Mexican food. No luxury, no alcohol for the moment but very Mexican . Tortillas,tacos and tostadas prepared as you like.

I have been to this place a few times now. Solid burritos and tacos at good prices. It is located in the corner of a mall and is usually bustling at lunch time. You order at the register then sit at a table or counter. They bring the food out to you in a plastic basket. You can grab some... More
