    Everything is absolutely delicious and it's authentic Mexican food. Try the chicken fajita, easily sharable for two people and they even give you rice, beans, etc. The horchata water is a must!

    Tacos are authentic and great. I had carnitas and pastor.... Pastor wins if your in the mood for pork. Nice BIG glass of watermelon water was refreshing break from August heat. Highly recommended!

    This place is 100% authentic. It truly is Orlando's Best Kept Secret. The service is great, the food is exceptional, as well as the environment. Try the "California" and then some sopapillas!

    Go with the chips, guac and queso as a starter and then go with the Pastor Chimichangas for the main course! Awesome food for a great price

    Try the Chicago Style burrito, it is excellent! I had the one with shredded beef. Topped with the habenero slices. Real authentic Mexican food! The prices can't be beat. Very friendly staff.

    Hole in the wall, but the food and service was great! They have wonderful fresh soup, beer, and they do not rush you out the door. Highly recommended!

    The chimichungas are great and very fulling. Great prices. Authentic Mexican food. I went on a Friday night around 8pm, the place was packed. Small venue. Limited parking

    Ordered a bunch of food to go. Pork tamales, pili and carnita quesadillas, and the 4 different pork tacos, and Jamaica drink. Everything was superb. And great price for excellent quality food.

    Cheap, fast, authentic and most of all delicious food. From the outside it looks a bit dodgy

    This is the real deal. Affordable and authentic. Al pastor is the best. Don't be afraid that they call queso "cheese dip" it's still amazing.

    The owners are from Mexico City, the food they serve is pretty close to what you would expect from a Mexican restaurant. The tacos are a must.

    The mall between Carrabbas and the fire station; the store between the Thai place and the cell phone repair place. Just go in already.

    Had the Chicken Fajitas and they pile it high and was the best I’ve had in a while. Didn’t like paying for Tostito chips and salsa though.
