We stopped at this whole in the wall place as we were driving through town for business. Food is really cheap and good. It does taste authentic. Only complaint is waitress was crazy fast, too fast. Barely sat down and rushing to get order when we hadn't even looked at menu. Also my beans/rice were cold. Would try again.

Found this place on TripAdvisor. What a find !! Our waitress was also the manager and owner, Denise. She was fabulous -- so honest and polite. Her suggestions were right on, especially the fajitas and the weekday $5 taco special. First thing she asked us was did we want the free margarita, even before we ordered !! To our surprise, she brought out a mug -- not a small glass. She even refilled our drinks. Now to the food -- awesome !! Homemade everything !! We don't know which we liked better. Went back to our hotel and told the front desk to send patrons this way when they are asked for recommendations. I don't recommend places unless I firmly believe they deserve it. This one does without a shadow of doubt !!

Thanks to reviews, stopped by here to try our their tacos. Can't beat the price: 3 tacos with rice and beans for $5. We have the pastor and fajita tacos. Really good Mexican food (not Tex-Mex). My favorite was the fajita. Ask for the green sauce (it's not automatically brought out, we saw someone else use it, so asked our waitress). They still offer 1 free beer per person! 6 tacos, 2 beers, chips, salsa, rice and beans for $10!!

we stop for breakfast, food was good, it was a rainy day so the restaurant was not really cleaned. I was expecting "home made tortillas" but it did not happened.

We had the fajitas which were fantastic! Free beer or margaritas with a $5.00 meal. Noon lunch is $5.00, wow how reasonable, the portions are huge! It's authentic Mexican food don't be scared of the looks of the building! Staff was friendly! I would give it a try!
