SOUTH SIDE HIDDEN JEWEL! The tastiest unknown Mexican restaurant in the Metro. I have been eating here for years. I have always received courteous takeout orders. Prices are very reasonable, for the portions. This small restaurant offers a unique, savory experience. I appreciate it's simple, yet delicious, down-home Mexican style offerings. Their sides are nearly addictive. I have tried; beef fried tacos w/meal, taco salad, jalapeño poppers, burritos, funnel cake fries, tostadas,...read full review

I had the 2 taco dinner meal ($5 or $5.50) that came with beans, rice, and a small homemade salsa. Every component was fresh and although the tortilla is deep fried, it wasn't greasy! Very clean restaurant, friendly environment, and fresh food. I'm impressed and pleasantly surprised.

I came here and ordered the original tacos, fries and funnel cake straws. The tacos were okay, they were crispy and had a nice texture but the meat didn't have too much flavor. I remember the tacos being better, maybe it was just an off day. The food is priced to be very affordable and offers a quick lunch spot.
