Ate here on the last night of our honeymoon in Orlando and was NOT disappointed by anything. Waited roughly 5-10 minutes on a Saturday night. Hands down the best Mexican food we've ever eaten. The guacamole was fresh (would love the recipe) along with the pico, the queso dip was creamy with just the right amount of spice, and the... More

Easy to miss from the outside, and don't let the exterior scare you off. It might not look like much, but I think it's the best Mexican restaurant in the Kissimmee/Orlando area. You know it's good when you see all the locals inside. The staff is courteous, attentive, and friendly, and the food is delicious with good-size portions. Very reasonable... More

Vegetarian friendly, very good food! People are very nice and the service is quick. Don't let the outside appearance fool you! Go in! It will be a very nice experience!

I always visit while vacationing from Tennessee. This is simply the best you can get. Delicious food & Frescas. When 90%of the patrons are Hispanic. ... you know it's gotta be great....worth an hours drive for just the cheese dip 😆😆😆

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. My husband and friend decided to eat here for dinner. The staff was excellent. There was a mariachi band playing on that evening. The experience was very enjoyable.

Almost 200 reviews and this is one of the lowest I've ever given. Worst wine margarita any of us ever had! Could not drink them! Three of us did not like our food. The other had Chicken Fajitas. They are hard to mess up, as you know. Most of the food had a sour sauce on it. Awful. In fairness... More

This restaurant was suggested to me by a local in Kissimmee. It is next to a grocery store, and not easy to find. The outside does not look like a place I would have stopped at, and I was the only non-latino in the place. Some might call it a whole-in-the-wall restaurant. But once inside, what a change. This is... More
