Authentic, delicious Mexican food. The chorizo came highly recommended from my El Salvadoran friend, and she was right (it’s the best I’ve ever had). They have a huge complimentary self-service condiment bar of veggies and sauces that is great too.

Worth the wait. Extremely authentic and delicious food, don't let appearances deter a visit. The building may be a bit dilapidated but the staff is extremely friendly and it has a family owned feel. They have a bit of a slow pace so don't expect a super quick stop. Gets very busy around meal times.

Tacos are good! So much meat and double tortillaed, each taco is pretty much 2 regular sized ones.

Food is absolutely delicious. There is a slight wait. Customer service is good.Make sure you finish with a cup of coffee and excellent conversation. I hope they spice it up a little (the decor). I really like it though

Fantastic food! A must visit in the area as food is made fresh to order. Place should so a better job of cleaning bathrooms but plenty of light and friendly staff.

Thankfully, I read reviews prior to stopping by the restaurant. For someone only fluent in one language, I was definitely out of my element. The staff here are not limited to such, perfect English (don't worry if you need assistance they can communicate better than your chain tex-mex joints) house-made Horchata... On point! I will definitely be back.

Service can be slow but other than that, this is my favorite authentic Mexican take out. Tortillas are hand made, the Spanish rice is sublime, and the salsa bar is extensive. Highly recommend!!!

The food here is consistently delicious. It's very authentic and portions are generous. Staff is very friendly too. It can be crowded and since everything is made to order, a bit slow. Worth the wait though!

Have been here a few times and food was great every time! There's a condiment bar with salsa and other toppings so you can get as much as you want. The wait can get crazy long for dinner on Saturdays.

Their tacos are so good! They are not skimpy with the meats. They are very nice and I will be back.

The BEST in Durham. Being residents in Az we missed our good Mexican food. This place is legit and never disappoints.

Delicious authentic Mexican food! This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. It reminds me a lot of my mothers cooking. However, be prepared to wait, the waiting can get quite long but some things are worth waiting for. 😋

The food was fresh, tasty, and fast! Staff was friendly. No ambience, but who cares when the food is this good.

Best restaurant in Durham. I'm visiting from the west coast and this place has kept me fed. Incredible flavors, authentic food, spicy salsa (giant salsa bar), and friendly & timely service. I would 100% recommend. I'll be coming back until it's time for me to fly home.

This is TRULY an authentic Mexican restaurant with dishes from the state of Mexico. I am very picky about my Mexican food and this here left me talking numerous times about how delicious things were. Also with every dish each person gets their own homemade corn tortillas (5-6) so you have enough to eat with your food! You don't have to share!! It is extremely affordable and the quantity of food you get is enormous. I kid you not. Everything is freshly prepared and served hot! I will always come back here to eat. Note- a local told us that the wait times to be seated are loooong so a lot of people call in to order food and enjoy at home.

Everything was delicious, and they had an English menu which helped speed things up since we don't speak a lot of Spanish. They were busy so it took a while to get our food, but the lady who brought it was very nice.

Ordered the Lengua, Cabeza, and Carnitas tacos. Affordable and good. It wasn't to busy on a Monday at noon.

I could eat here every day. In fact, I did for a week and still wasn't burned out on the food. I like their papusas, tacos, gorditas, menudo (although not as good as mine), etc. I haven't tried a lot on the menu because I'm happy with the things I normally order. The only thing I would steer you away from is the liver. I thought it might be different but it wasn't. Fried until hard and tough like the sole of my shoe. Otherwise, take a chance and try it.

Great place with a LOT of options. Super friendly wait staff that is following COVID protocols, even sanitizing the menus between customers. I had the veggie enchilada and it was full of great veggies (carrots, broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash).
