Tiny restaurant with BIG flavors! The salsa here is known all over! Tucked away in a small location in Hayward it is family food at reasonable prices!

Consistent food quality and service. Good menu. The only problem is the salsa is so good, you'll over eat the chips. Plan on taking food home. If Mexican food was my favorite food, this would be one of my favorite local spots.
