This family owned restaurant has been in Half Moon Bay for many years. They expanded their location years ago to accommodate the long lines and faster service. I have eaten here many times and have always been happy with the quality of their food. The prices are very reasonable ($5 - $12). I would highly recommend that you pass up... More

As a matter of act, I am eating at this restaurant today for lunch. It is always a definitely on our list of Mexican restaurants in HMB. The chips and salsa are free at this restaurant and it is a place I would definitely bring out of town guests.

We often go here for diner. The food is great. It is a very busy popular restaurant. It is noisy inside if you are there during a crowded time. I love the burrito's, they use a nice tortilla which can make or break your food.

Went there with my wife today. The place was packed. I had a shrimp super burrito and my wife had a shrimp cocktail. Both were pretty good.

No frills straight forward Mexican food. Better than Taco Hell down the street. Nice service and awesome salsa bar

The parking lot is always full; the service is always prompt and the food is simple and good. This is great place to bring the kids after the soccer match.

We usually stop to eat here when passing through. Simple taqueria, order at counter and they will bring it to your table, inside or out.

We stopped here for a quick bite before heading from half moon bay to Napa. The food was AMAZING! I love Mexican food and this was definitely top notch. The price can't be beat. My husband and I both ate for under $20. Ingredients were fresh and the food came out HOT! I want to go back !

Visiting from out of town and asked our driver for a recommendation on a great Mexican restaurant for lunch. He sent us to Tres Amigos. The parking lot was jammed packed when we arrived, which is a great sign. The clientele was an eclectic mix of people, which is another good sign. The food was really delicious.

Stopped here for lunch while driving down PCH and found a crowded restaurant with a line at the order counter. But that's a sign of good food at an economical price- and the line to order moved fairly quickly. After ordering, you serve yourself chips with a variety of salsas and sauces. I found the salsa and sauces to be... More
