Authentic Mexican Dishes

What Our Customers Say

Laura G., Linthicum Heights, MD 

Super authentic & delicious. Incredibly cheap. Friendly service. It’s a hole in the wall, but one of my favorites. yum!!!

Don B., Summerville, SC  

Not your everyday restaurant for sure. It has some great open air qualities about it. I have no idea what some of the bad reviewers of this place were on the day they came here, but boy this was for sure some of the best Mexican food I ever had. Today’s experience makes me want to come back. You have to believe most Yelper’s know what they’re doing and this place proves it. You certainly wouldn’t come here for the ambiance.

Now back to the food. I had chicken fajitas and wow, wow is all I can say. Some of the best flavors rolling around in my mouth that I’ve had. The wife had a Shrimp Quesadilla and she finished everything on her plate. We both were quite impressed with the magic coming out of the kitchen. Service was equally as good. There were two servers and even though only one of them was waiting on us they both asked if we needed anything and was everything ok, what else could you want— wait we wouldn’t go there.

I regret not coming to this place sooner. I was told by someone I know that this place “was overrated.” After my experience, I completely disagree and also am completely satisfied with everything I ordered. I did have it to go but the entire order was done in 10 min which was awesome. My husband and I ordered the milanesa torta, 8 tacos, and one street corn. Every single thing was really delicious and had me satisfied and amazed that this place does really have authentic food I miss from my hometown in Southwest Texas.

The salsas they included also had a really good flavor and were SPICY but addicting. The torta was huge and I could only eat half but it was cooked and served up just right. Not only are the tacos cheap but the meat (carnitas and asada) inside were seasoned/cooked well and I didn’t feel like they were skimped or too small. And finally the street corn–definitely worth feeling overstuffed because if you love eloté then you’ll be glad this follows and tastes just like most places make them.

Overall: great place to get a quick bite and even a better choice if you’re craving legit tacos and Mexican street food.

Laine B., Summerville, SC 

First time at this location. I love the motif of everything and the inside of the dining area has air conditioning which is super nice you don’t have to sit outside where it’s hot like the Summerville/Goose Creek location, also they have margaritas and things like that not just cold beer, the menu was the same as it was at the other location in Goose Creek/ Summerville but the service here is really great, the servers were quick to respond when I sat down and overall it looks very clean and the tiki decor great and of course the food is always great at Tiki taco
