Hand Made From Authentic Ingredients

All our food is handmade and authentic from the finest ingredients available. Here's what one of our customers recently said -

"The Carnitas is probably something they are known most for. They are great however if you order them crispy, be prepared, they are very very crispy. I like them the way they come. The fish tacos are also very good. They taste great. They come with the fish, cabbage and white sauce, nice and simple. The tamales are good as are the chile relleno is great, it is traditional and not an egg bake like some places serve."
