I was really looking forward to a hearty, cheesy, yummy burito. Instead I got a tiny burito, filled only with ground beef. Nothing else. Likewise for the taco- soggy with ground beef. No cheese, sour cream or pico. Very disappointing

When you first walk into this restaurant, you look around, inhale, and are immediately questioning your decision to try a new Mexican place. Then you sit down and take a look at the menu. THeir salsa is amazing (which they bring with chips immediately), the Margaritas are very well priced and strong to boot ($39 for a large pitcher which can get 3-4 people tipsy). We made the mistake of only ordering a bunch of appetizers... although they were all amazing, just as we were finishing up, the waiter brought out a steaming chicken enchilada plate for someone else and it smelled spectacular. The food is amazing, the drinks are strong (and can be made stronger if you ask), and the atmosphere grows on you. This place is one example of how you can remold a first impression. An amazing hole in the wall for anyone looking for well priced, authentic, and great tasting Mexican.

First of all, (since the restaurant was empty) we asked if we could move to a bigger table. The seater said "No" explaining that when bigger parties came in they'd need the larger tables. OK... But not one person came in from the time we sat down until the time we left... The food was just ok. I've lived in TX so I definitely disagree with the previous reviewers. But it wasn't bad. The quality was lacking, and it was over priced for what it was but about as good as you'll do for the area. Where it shined: the margaritas. While others have not been pleased, we were extremely happy. Maybe a bit too happy, if you know what I mean... The waiter even asked if it was strong enough and offered more tequilla. We did not need it. And we're no lightweights....

Simple, cheap and very good. Stay away from the shrimp dishes . Everything else rocks!

Being from the west coast, I have had a really hard time finding Mexican food that lives up to my standards. It seems you can't find any authentic Mexican around here and it's all really bad Tex-Mex. This place is by far the best I've had. It's a total hole in the wall, but the margaritas were great (asked for mine strong and the bartender obliged). The queso is enough to feed a small army and when my picky friend and I gave the waiter special instructions for our food, they were more than happy to accomodate us. I have eaten there twice and both times were great, and you really can't beat the price! This place is a MUST if you want great food and a kitchy hole-in-the-wall atmosphere.

I am have gone to this restaurant for the past 8 years, and the food there reminds me of Texas. The drinks are so good, they give me a memory of the Rio Grande. Go to this food joint. Mexico awaits in every bite.

The place is a tiny, uncomfortable hole in the wall with an overpowering mildew smell. Although service was prompt, the food was very bland and lacking ingredients. Probably the most tastless mexican food I've ever had. Dirt cheap, but still not worth it. I would never go back.
