    Tacos are huge , don't do tostaco as it isn't easy to eat. The Baka fried fish is the best thing here . Pictured is the Baja fish taco and chicken taco

    Great authentic Mexican food! After you order, they serve and bus your table! (They have a four car parking lot so it's best to parallel park on the street.)

    Tilapia tacos - not too fishy, just right. Each taco is a decent size, so if you are not too hungry, one should be enough. Skip the Mayan chocolate mousse, very ordinary.

    The Chicken Enchiladas with Rice and Beans are delicioso! Both the Tomatillo and Mole sauces are great. The Avocado Tomatillo salsa is awesome, too!

    Great authentic food (so I've been told) and good value. Seafood tacos and chile rellenos rock.

    Eat the relleno enchiladas. They're delicious. Margaritas are from a mix but still tasty.

    The look of the restaurant is a little goofy, but the food is great!

    Saw the reviews and was hoping for some good authentic food but didn't experience that. Four of us tried different meals and none of us were satisfied. It's okay but not going to visit again.

    Chicken is wonderfully flavored so try anything chicken. Rice and beans are good too.
