Diamond in the ruff, authentic mexican, well worth the trip off the main drag! My 10 year old thought it was the best mexican he's ever had. Don't let the bars on the windows scare you off, the inside is clean and everyone is very friendly. Prices are very reasonable too.

On our way home from the airport decided to try a new Mexican place...wow were we in for an awesome surprise. Clean restaurant, nice servers. I LOVED the salsa platter that came for FREE...what an fun and delicious treat. I had the green enchiladas in chicken and my fiancé had 3 tacos...beef, chicken, and pork. I loved mine and he said his were fantastic. Reasonable prices, and just love that they brought fresh limes and radishes with our meal...can't wait to return!

The caldo de pollo is excellent for curing illness and tastes yummy on a cold Winter night. However, their sopes de carne asada are the best in Omaha. Friendly atmosphere. Always families enjoying a meal. Jukebox available. Quick friendly staff that has worked there for more than 10+ years! Completely worth the money!

This is real Mexican food. We arrived about 11:30 a.m. Sunday morning. By noon every table was taken and we were the only gringos in the place. When you come in they will bring a bowl of tortilla chips and five different kinds of salsa. The orange and red ones are hot and both are good. We both got the bistec a la mexicana and weren't disappointed. Noticed that a lot of the customers were ordering shrimp cocktail so I suspect that is another good choice.

Don't be put off by outside appearance of restaurant...it is hidden gem. The chip/relish tray they serve complimentary is unbelievable...beer glass is Frosted for the Victoria beer that is already ice cold! Food was delicious...reasonable prices...
