    Delicious, authentic, somewhat heavy tacos, tamales, pinto beans and chorizo in the hood. The standalone fresh tortillas, almost like Indian breads, are the star

    This place is a hidden gem! Don't let the line scare you away. It's cafeteria style, so you'll be served immediately. Grab a couple tacos and some huevos con chorizo (add rice)! You won't regret it!

    Everything is so fresh and authentic tasting. The long lines go by quickly because you need that much time to decide what to order. Chorizo and rolled!!!

    The food and the menu are pretty basic, definitely nourishing and very barrio. Downtown lunch crowd go there; it's the kind of place that I'd recommend an out-of-towner check out just to go local. Read more

    Gut busting Mexican food served old school. Get there early for lunch because the line goes down the block. In Barrio Logan but just don't squint your eyebrowns at Mosca and you'll be cool.
