Really enjoyed our Date Night with an unpretentious, quaint, and delicious authentic meal. Our Server was friendly, the food was nicely prepared, and our total bill was under $20. We will go back (probably pretty frequently as one of our new go-to's). Add to all...More

A great place to get good Mexican food in Lancaster. A bit small so getting a seat is not guaranteed. Very good food at reasonable prices. Torta Pastor always a winner. Been there many times and never disappointed. Give it a try.

This is a tiny Mexican Restaurant across from the Fulton theater. It is frequently quite crowded but the food is of good quality, the service is good, and it is BYOB if you are so inclined. Check the board in front for current specials.

We arrived for dinner minutes before they were closing (8 pm) but they still were happy to serve us. The restaurant is quite small and they have one or two tables outside. Service was fast and friendly. The tortillas are hand made and quite flavorful....More
