"I recently ordered some homemade tacos, and I must say, they exceeded my expectations. The use of homemade ingredients really made a noticeable difference in the overall flavor and quality of the tacos. The standout for me was the salsa, which had a unique and vibrant taste thanks to the homemade ingredients. It perfectly balanced the flavors of the other components and added a delightful kick to every bite.The tortillas were soft and had a wonderful texture that enhanced the taco-eating experience. They were the perfect vessel for the flavorful fillings and didn't overpower the taste with excessive doughiness. I appreciated the attention to detail in making sure the tortillas were just right.Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with the homemade ingredients used in these tacos. The flavors were well-balanced, and the tacos were satisfying without being too heavy. If you're looking for a truly authentic and delicious taco experience, I highly recommend trying these homemade tacos. You won't be disappointed!"

Visited them during Dixon's Christmas Celebration for dinner. They had a few set meals for that evening. On the basis of that burrito I would not visit again. I'm sure they're capable of doing better. Will they?

We ordered carry-out on a Friday afternoon. Ready in minutes. Staff was personable and helpful.We chose #17, (cheese) Enchiladas Rojas. The meal comes with three enchiladas; we added a fourth in order to split the meal. Refried pinto beans were a little liquid; rice was ok. The meal comes with a few tortilla chips + salsa. The chips were fresh and crisp; mild salsa was thick and tasty.The white cheese on enchiladas and refried beans is a common Mexican cheese (Chihuahua cheese, used by many Mexican restaurants). It's NOT parmesan cheese.Our main issue is that carry-out food is in styrofoam containers. And order is packaged in a one-time-use plastic bag.We wish for black beans rather than pinto beans. But maybe that's not a factor for their main clientele.

Barley got any chips and salsa. Ordered nacho cheese for our chips too and didn't come till our chips were already gone. Beans were practically water. Ordered a burrito and it tasted like dish soap. Would have loved to wash it down with a drink but never once got a refill. Never once got asked how the food was. Would have loved extra sour cream but couldn't get the waitresses to stop talking to each other at the counter. Seems like you only get good service if you know the people working.

Food really is good but I man, portion size is WAY too small for the price. I usually have left overs but here, I could eat 2 dinners and still have room for more. They literally gave me 5 chips with the salsa.

Bad food, bad service. Do not recommend at all. Was easy to tell the frier oil was old and everything was way overcooked. The chips were burned, the flautas were rock hard and the chimichanga was soaked in a green sauce that made it soggy. The sign says masters of salsa but it was terrible too - it was basically water with some spices in it. We could not eat any of it. We were the only customers the service was still terrible. The staff was not friendly at all. Find somewhere else to eat!
