This place is awesome. It has great food. The food is made to order, so it takes a little time, but the tacos are great. It is old school, so you eat outside or takeaway. There is extra parking around the building, so even if it looks full you can probably find a place to park.

The shrimp ceviche is fantastic. I haven't had better Mexican food in Durham. You probably will have to wait for walk up, but you can order ahead.

Good food but expect to wait in line. Took about 15 minutes from line to table. Had a good time with those Lengua tacos...while they lasted 😁

Pretty good tacos, I was surprised how generous the amount of meet was. They have a big menu with a variety of mexican dishes. This place is more a take-out kind of thing. Seating is outside, small, and can get pretty hot during the summer. Plus when we were there, a couple of impolite guys started putting loud music in their cellphone (they were like drunk or somethin). Definitely would buy food from this place again.

This place has delicious tacos. For less then $10.00 you get rice and beans and your chose of three different tacos. That's cheap! Whenever I pass by I always get myself an order. They're very nice and I never had an issue with parking.

I moved here from California and it’s difficult to find good Mexican food in NC. Most of the places here don’t even compare and shouldn’t call themselves authentic.. but this place is pretty good! It taste a lot like home.. not exactly the same but pretty close. Their horchata is definitely the same! It’s really good. My only complaint is that the portions are kind of small for the price. Paid close to $30 for 2 meals but they skimped out on the portions.

Awesome taco spot. Picnic tables for seating. Veggie options. There is an increase in price for non cash purchases, there is a sign on wall.

The quality of their food is good but the quantity is pretty skimped. If you live close to them then I get the rave. If you’re a Durham local, then you definitely know that there are better places in Durham with better prices. I spent $8.50 on two small tacos and a small quesadilla. I can go to other places and pay the same price and get bigger portions.

That's some dang good Mexican. Outdoor seating is covered which is nice on a drizzly day. Loved the tacos, especially the Carnitas and the lengua. Not fancy, not expensive.

This place is wonderful and has a couple vegetarian options too. Great place to carry away a quick meal.
