My favorite place for Mexican food, period. Nothing else comes close. Queso fundido and elote con mavonesa v cotija are incredible. Do not leave without trying the tesote tea. Perfect drink on a hot day.

Everything on the menu is superb. My favorite is the chicken soup with fresh avocado. The space is small and the clientele is still willing to wait in line to order and find a seat - it is THAT good.

Ate here with friend. As in the past the food is fresh and delicious-fish tacos are the bomb. Family owned and usually busy but worth the wait.

Authentic, beyond yummy but be willing to pay for it. No regrets. Come here when I want to spoil myself. I can easily spend $25-30 on lunch and it is entirely worth it.

Followed advice of several friends and dined there. I was not disappointed. Gentleman who took our order explained about the restaurant's beginning and menu. My Quesedilla Choriqueso was very good - fresh tasting. Loved the presentation. My husband enjoyed his De Huevo con Chorizo. We...More

The fish tacos did not have a lot of flavor. It has been a while since I have visited. I will be back. To try something new.

I was in the area for a doctor appointment and searched restaurants near me, as I was famished after fasting. Low and behold, could it be true? A 4.5 rated Mexican restaurant in Germantown, TN? I decided to give it a shot. I arrive at...More
