  • “I was a little nervous when I saw the comments about the delivery but mine was earlier than the time frame they gave me (40-55 minutes). And this was the best Mexican delivery I've had in my 6 years of living in the city. The carne burrito and the chicken quesadilla are amazing. I will definitely be ordering from here again.”

  • “Pretty solid! Excellent delivery... Best authentic, house-made flour tortillas. I've seen the ladies making them by hand. I only order the Carne burrito but have to order something else that I don't really want just to get a delivery. Minimum delivery amount should be lowered. Other than that and my garlic breath after the delicious sauces, this place is great!”

  • “Awesome authentic Mexican, favorite any specialty on seamless and would give seven stars if went that high. Order from here regularly and favorites include: cecina tacos, camarron tacos, carnitas tacos and the BEST salsa verde I've ever tasted. Delish! And very quick delivery every time!”

  • “This place is amazing. Great fish tacos, great al pastor, good portions for the price, everything was amazing. I will definitely order again. I wish they did individual tacos though instead of orders of 3. Other than that, this place gets 5 stars from me.”

  • “Extremely poor quality of food and very inconsistent taste-wise. Had a severe stomach ache all night after eating their chicken burrito. Husband got grossed out by an unidentifiable, inedible chunk of something in his carne burrito and threw out the entire thing.”

  • “Ordered steak tacos, guacamole, soup, quesadillas and corn... The guacamole had a huge chunk of grey/brown avocado in it (my boyfriend tried to convince me it was a guacamole covered purple onion slice until I flattened it to prove the point), the tortillas around the quesadillas were soggy to the point of inedible (not to mention there was no visible cheese within) AND they had a pinky sized chicken bone still in them and finally, the soup tasted like water with vegetables in it. The steak tacos and corn were the only things edible, but how hard is it to put steak in a tortilla and top with cilantro or boil corn? Gross!”
