Ok, where to begin? I tossed and turned whether to rate this place 3 or 4 stars. As far as the food is concerned, it is good. It's not the best but certainly above average (hence 4 stars). It's not like I don't like the place but would I come here with family and friends for a night of Mexican... More

The locals know to head over to "the Avenue" (Ventura Ave) away from Main street for the best authentic Sonoran style Mexican food in town. The staff are lovely, the kitchen fast and the food excellent.

The very best in Mexican food at a spot recommended to us by a local. The service is exceptionally friendly, which was icing on the cake for a great meal. Located in a nondescript building (you can easily miss it!), this is a hidden gem of culinary delight. Very good shrimp tacos, salsa and the refried beans are some of... More

Really good. Authentic Mexican food. The place was a little old and dive barish, but great food. I will be back

I had the Chile Relleno burrito. It was good but not one of the best. The service was good for a lunch rush.

I've been in Ventura for 18 years, this place has been here longer. We've heard murmurs as to how good it was throughout the years. Finally, we took the plunge...and it was well worth it. I had Huevos Rancheros and my wife and friend had the carnitas and carne asada tacos. Then we shared the flan. All were great and... More

Thi s is the place to go for excellent and authentic Mexican food in Ventura. They have two India Pale Ales on tap and the normal Mexican beers too. I had the Ruben ' s Burrito chili verde........awesome. My wife had the fish tacos, grilled not deep fried. Very good guacamole. Perfect for lunch or a casual dinner.

Been there 4 times now. (Because friends wanted to try it.) A friend and I shared the $14 frajitas. Thinking it would be too much to eat. We both received a plate with tasteless beans & rice. The frajitas consisted of 1 small sliver of over cooked onion, 1 small sliver of a green pepper that had been cooking all... More
