    Small place. Might have to wait. Nachos are best,plz dont try burritos and not a good 'to go' service. Still place worth to visit.

    Great food, main complain is the tortillas, i don't like white tortillas, they should do them corn.

    Tacos El Salvador style. Typically crowded inside so get take out and head over to Christie Park.

    Technically not a Mexican place, authentic and delicious food from El Salvador! This place is always packed, get takeout and eat in the park.

    Guacomole is good but it should be cheaper than nachos, not the same price since the portions are less. The chips are good. I am inclined to eat here even though it is in Koreatown (as a Korean).

    Use great caution when applying the free salsa to your tacos. It's quite fiesty, like your mom.

    You cannot go wrong with the crispy taco variety. Shells made in house. Don't forget to spice it up with the jalapeños served on the side

    El Salvadorian treasure. Table gets jalapeño/onion mixture & homemade hot sauce. Get soup, tacos, chips and guacamole, or nachos. Burritos are simple: beans, rice, meat + queso fresco. Cash only.

    Guacamole fans: Pony up the $6.50 and get the guac side with chips. Delicious, and a fair size.

    Their one failing is how they wrap their burritos. It is physically impossible to eat without unrolling the tortilla.

    The "Best" Tacos in Town ( ! ). Order extra hot sauce and ask for the bag of spice. Includes lime, coriander, lettuce and other mixed vegetables, all with a huge kick of spice. Delicious but *hot*
