This was a pleasant suprise and thanks to the reviews here. it would be easy to dismiss this place but so glad we didn't. It is a mexican food place in a food mart but it is so fresh and tasty. Give it a chance and you will not be disappointed.

Who knew that a gas station with attached market would also house a fantastic Mexican restaurant? This place is awesome. Open Thanksgiving (and other days when pretty much anything else would be closed). "Unassuming" would be an understatement. And they stock not just Mexican Coca Cola, but Mexican Pepsi too!

Don't let the location fool you, this is actually really good, authentic Mexican food. Definitely not what I was expecting when we drove up, but since it had good reviews we gave it a shot anyway. The grilled chicken quesadilla and burrito were both really good!

This place was recommended to me by a server in another restaurant and she was absolutely right. I had a vegetarian burrito there for breakfast two mornings in a row, along with a large french roast coffee and both items were delicious. Not the place for a romantic dinner...it's inside a gas station convenience store...but, yumster.

Great food, fresh and tasty! All you can eat chips and salsa bar. The ceviche could have used a bit more flavor, but besides that, everything was excellent and reasonably priced.

What great food. We hiked 5.5 miles in Butano and this was our reward. My husband had the fish tacos and I had the cerviche tostada. Both were excellent. We will definitely be back and recommend to others.

We were driving north on Highway 1 towards San Francisco from Santa Cruz, and stopped in Pescadero, a small historic town just 5 mins off the highway. This taco place was right in the middle of town, part of a grocery store. We had tacos, rice and beans, and it was absolutely excellent. The food was served quickly, hot and... More

Okay, so my wife and I read some of the reviews for this place and we were all ready to go. Walked down and saw that it looked to be a gas station with a small restaraunt inside. We passed at first. Mistake. Don't judge it from the outside. Later on in our trip we went in and the place... More

Service is fast - the meals arrive before I've even had more than a few chips. I haven't tried everything on the menu yet, but won't stop until I do! Always get the horchata. The sauces at the condiment bar are wonderful, especially the green. The pico de gallo has fresh cilantro. I always bring some sauces home for huevos... More
