Just a small Taqueria, with a few tables inside and a few more on the patio, but the authentic Mexican food they prepare on-site is great! It's prepared in the traditional Mexican style and never fatty or overcooked. The guacamole is fantastic, too! Try a Carnitas burrito or grab a dozen fresh tortillas and order a half pound of Carnitas to go.

I'd rate it higher if they would add some more tables and another cashier.

Just a small place off El Camino Real. Named after it's reputation for being a good place to pick up a day laborer (back when it shared a parking lot with the local hardware store. A family run restaurant offering authentic Mexican food at a very reasonable price. Beer by the bottle, glass or pitcher, too.

They are also well known for the fish & chips, Yep it??s a local favorite!

We usually sit outside on the patio. It??s small but open and friendly. Try a Carnitas plate or a carne asada taco.
