Nice people, great prices and huge portions. Kids meals are around $3 and good selection. Worth the diversion off of the 101 into Fortuna. Very popular with the locals. Casual and fast.

This restaurant is super-fast, and has delicious and quality food. Meals are inexpensive. The restaurant can be very loud and noisy at lunch time or during community events on Main Street.

Our hostess, Angeles, was absolutely wonderful and took the time to guide us Brits to the most delicious food on the menu. She listened to what we liked and recommended incredible and well-priced options for us both to enjoy. Traveller tip - look at the combos. These are really well priced and incredibly filling!

This is a surprisingly good Mexican restaurant - family run, friendly and inexpensive. Best Horchata I've ever had (homemade there) and the sauce on the enchilada used a kind of chile that gave it a delicious warm, smokey flavor. Atmosphere is just a regular lunch place.

This little hole in the wall received rave reviews via TripAdvisor, so why not give it a try. When you walk in you place your order at the counter and they bring the food out to you. No problem. When we received the food, which was a little pricey for Mexican food, it was good portions. I had a Chimichanga... More

The food was great and in abundant portions. They do not skimp on the quality of ingredients. Salsa and chips were great as well.

I have loved this place for 20 years plus!!!! Everything is excellent....the only thing I yhink they are a bit pricey, I don't like paying 10 bucks for my favorite burrito, so sadly I don't go there much anymore. They have steadily increased prices to the point that I think it's just too much. But I do still love there... More

Good food, friendly staff, fast service. Nothing real fancy with counter service for ordering. Fish tacos with deep-fried catfish are a favorite. Everything I tried was good. Also offer beer and Margaritas (not blended).
