We've been coming here for about 6 years and always find the food to be fresh and the prices great. The owner is very friendly and seems to be there all the time. We are from San Diego, originally, so need our Mexican food fix frequently and choose this place over all the rest. It's closest to what we like in Mexican food. The building is old and the seats are not all the best, but we go there to have good Mexican, so as long as it's clean, fancy doesn't matter. We love the reasonable prices, too. They have dollar tacos to go on Tues or Wed. We live too far to take out, so don't take advantage of the deal, but a lot of folks do. So many people frequent fancy places that have pre-made taco shells. That's not for us. We like original. Plus, on the combo meal you get a choice of soup or salad and the soup is albondigas. Delish!
