Food was great! Served fresh and hot. Lots of options. Good value for the cost. Walk up window service with outdoor seating only. Ample parking.

Food was okay... It was a little highly priced for this to be an outdoor takeout place. I had the mole, which was pretty good and my friend ordered the enchiladas in red sauce. She loved it. I don't think I'll be back. The order took a while and it's only outside seating and the parking is Very limited!

Nice corner restaurant with picnic tables. Food was okay but I’m super critical of Mexican food as I am from México. The cow on the roof of the place was really cute.

Pretty authentic street tacos. Minimal, but classic and tasty. Parking is a little difficult and the staff wasn’t super friendly; still enjoyed my meal and will probably return for takeout. Looks like there’s also a nice patio for a fun meal with friends.

Incredible, authentic food. Challenging because you want to try everything on the menu but have your favorites too. The cheese mole enchiladas and babacoa tacos are drool worthy. No indoor seating and walk up to the counter to order. There are tables outside, partially covered and enclosed. This is a gem of a foodie find. Look for the cow on the roof.

We ordered the Birria tacos and veggie burrito. They were both delicious and the Birria tacos were full of flavor. We will be coming back

Tacos (chorizo, pollo, barbacoa, asada) were delicious—savory, tender, fragrant with some freshness added thru a variety of garnish. Quesadilla, added barbacoa, was also very good, really liked the cheese. Tamales were soft, moist, comforting.

It's a window service restaraunt, both order and pickup windows with an enclosed patio seating area just so you're aware. Service was surprisingly quick for the sheer volume of orders rolling through this place at dinner time. The food was perfect, one of the best if not the best Mexican place in the triangle. Flavors on point, even the beans and rice were impressive.

Been going here for something like a decade, never, never been disappointed. Fresh, delicious, reasonably priced. It’s a drive from my house, many other Mexican options closer, but this place is worth the drive, every single time.

This place is the real deal. The menu is a little overwhelming due to how many different plates and tacos are available, so I just stepped out of line and took my time looking through everything before ordering. I’m not super familiar with more traditional Mexican food, so I just picked a few tacos I’d never had before, including lengua (beef tongue). Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly. I can’t wait to go back over and over and try new things every time!

This place is amazing and has some of the best food in the area. Our body shop eats here at least 2-3 times a week. There are tons of different things on the menu and they are all delicious.

Solid choice for good tacos. The rice here is flavorful. I was disappointed in the amount of rice and beans I received. It was maybe 3 spoons of each. I have tried the burrito based on the Indy Week best burrito in Durham rating. It's pretty good however I'll probably stick to the tacos.

My family and I eat here frequently and the food is always consistent and delicious. We have enjoyed everything from the tacos, tamales, and enchiladas to the horchata. The barbacoa is unbelievably soft and flavorful and one of our favorites. The chorizo queso is a must have, although it is a bit pricey for the portion size, it is packed with chorizo and flavor. This is by far one of our favorite places to enjoy authentic Latin food. Great staff and great food.
