This is a tiny little restaurant in downtown Ephrata. We stopped here because we found good ratings in a Google search. I was born and raised in Southern California and have spent a lot of time in Mexico and the food here is legit. The Fresh homemade corn tortillas and a fresh salsa bar were great. Many traditional and authentic... More

I got the nacho macho. It came with liquid cheap cheese, and from the taste of it canned chicken. Won't ever go there again. Not impressed at all.

They have a salsa bar... Need I say more. Not only do they have a serve yourself salsa bar all the salsas are outstanding, and they touch on every taste spectrum. Hot, mild, medium, smokey, vinegary, etc. Just a great place that's isn't terribly expensive.

This place is kind of like a hole in the wall, AC dripping water at the entrance, tiny place, very basic. Good tacos thou! Stopped here on the way to camping just for a bite ( because of TA) had 2 tacos each and tried their about 10 different salsas (most of them spicy) . Great stop! Everyone liked it!... More

Met some family here for lunch. Food was okay. Carne Asada plate was decent, the pork tamales were tasty, half dozen to go please! Two big disappointments that will keep me from going back. The bathroom is two feet from my table, design flaw in the building, lack of forethought on the renovations, whatever the reason, the bathroom is 2... More

Four of us stopped in for lunch. I asked what was the best meal on the menu? The person told me two different dishes, she spoke a little fast, however I understood burrito so I ordered it. All of our orders were delivered in a timely manner and we were all very satisfied. My burrito was huge and very tasty.... More

If you want a genuine Mexican food, with real authentic salsas, it's here! They have about 8-12 salsas at one time varying in spiciness.

No Taco Bell here! Everything is good in this family run restaurant. I often eat here when I am at my property in Rimrock Meadows. Best Mexican food in Ephrata. Try to goat or the menudo. The horchata is huge.

Food was very good. Was a little dis appointed with the salsa bar as all items were hot no mild. Good but I've had better. Not a lot to drink but 2 items the rest was bottles or cans. Little place to dine but better if you take out. No chips.

I love this little place! I have traveled to Mexico and often find the Mexican cuisine in America fake and greasy in comparison. This tiny restaurant keeps it authentic, delicious, and basic. There is something for pretty much anyone to enjoy, and I love that they have a salsa bar where you can try a good variety of authentic delicious... More
