    Solid, workmanlike tacos. A small hill of tender, grilled steak lay on the doubled-up corn tortillas. Dressed simply with diced onion, cilantro, fiery red salsa, and a generous squeeze of lime. Read more

    This place is a hidden gem for Mexican food! The dishes were great and the prices were very reasonable. Just make sure to ask for chips when you grab your order – which they don't tell you to do.

    Still love this place but prices have gone up in recent years. Way cheaper options on Lincoln in Ocean Park. Still, veggie burrito here is a great deal and the salsa bar is wonderful.

    Such a hole-in-the-wall gem and It's clean! I'm all about crunchy tacos and hands down, one of the best crunchy fried fish tacos I've had in awhile.

    The menu is massive - from huevos rancheros to mole to birria to tacos to plates like chile verde or chicken diablo. Read more

    Really good tacos with healthy options. All of the fish taco choices will make you smile. Bring quarters for street parking or go around the block and park on 14th.

    One of the best Mexican places in LA. Don't get fooled by the low prices; the food is fantastic. Try the Californian burrito

    Breakfast burritos w sausage comes with free side of tortillas. Put the salad & limes in the plastic bag, not the containers. Lol.

    Lovely tacos. No frills though. Just tacos straight up and down. Go for the Mahi Mahi tacos. You won't be disappointed.

    The chorizo with cheese and fried fish tacos are the ones to order. Amazing. Hated the California burrito which I got based on someone's reco. Very bland.

    Carnitas burrito and a chorizo taco is my standard. Top notch auga fresca, and a solid make your own salsa bar.

    The grilled chicken on the Caesar salad is amazing! The Caesar dressing is light and citrusy. My "lite" lunch favorite.

    Very delicious food. They're also very stingy with the napkins, so my tip is to bring your own.

    Great spinach breakfast burrito and their salsa bar is perfect. Crappy plastic silverware is my only complaint. I bring my own bamboo ware.

    Call for advance order or delivery other than lunch rush hour (12-2)! Otherwise you will be put on hold for a VERY long time.

    as an option for the burritos they have flavored tortillas, like jalapeño or tomato and basil, for an extra buck

    Low carb fare: Asada plate, black beans, no rice, extra beans, no sour cream, add guacamole. Go!
    Nachos not so good...hard tacos and chorizo and egg burrito are great

    TPV! Carnitas are amazing. Watch out not to go when the school across the street gets out if you don't want to battle them in line.
