Great tasting food with average price. Portion size has decreased BUT this may be due the pandemic causing a strain to the restaurant industry. I will be back!

I have went to this location several times as it is closer to my house. Each time the food has been horrible. The Cal city location always have excellent food and customer service. Don't waste your time with the Lansing location it's terrible!

From the moment we got there we were greeted by a staff member that was VERY friendly! We ordered the Mariachi nachos (no meat) that have refried beans, nacho chips, pieces of cut up avocado and melted muenster cheese! Muy Delicioso! They also offer nachos with the "soupy" like nacho cheese (as I call it, lol). Then I ordered the cheese and onion enchiladas suits. That also was great! It's an intimate dining experience and I will DEFINITELY be going back and I think you should go and check them out!

Love this place. Authentic traditional mexican food. Never a disappointment. Never crowded. Truly a underrated gem in the Lansing area. Customer service is always a priority here. They've also recently started serving margaritas! If you're in the area they're definitely worth a stop.

Review №36

Used to order from this place all the time..but i stopped because i ordered a beef enchilada and it had a long piece of plastic inside the enchilada and when i called immediately to tell them about it the lady at the front did nothing she just kept asking what kind of plastic was it..its sad because they know my face from how much i order with them i worked and lived off of ridge rd and patronized this place often..even had all my co-workers going over all the other restaurants in the area but not anymore..they also have delivery but never a delivery person..no bueno

Was a disappointment, used to love the flautas, oil was old, flautas were reheated, salsa tasted like pizza sauce Nd the waitress couldn't get off her phone to actually do her damn job

Very happy and upbeat staff. The food is wonderfully generous, tasty, and presented well. Being an ex-waitress/cocktail waitress/bartender I am very critical about service and taste in the food industry. So, 5 stars to me is a place you will be happy with.

Steak tacos was really good

An
Review №47

I gave 2 stars because the steak and chicken tacos are good and the guacamole is great! But seriously, they are over-priced and portions are small. The buy 3 get 1 free is a joke if you want steak--you'll have to pay $1.50 more and the steak they put in the tacos is very minimal. So for 4 steak tacos and a side of sour cream--$12.00! Though that's not a lot of money but you will still be hungry after you eat them! Try Burrito Express in Lansing on Burnham instead.

Service was fine but the burrito was a little too greasy and it was overpriced. I'll stick to my places in Chicago but it got the job done.

Review №53

The service was not too bad but the food could've been better... From the street it seemed like a busy restaurant but inside was another story. It was EMPTY and food wasn't good. I would choose McDonald's over this.

Review №84

I honestly wish there was a 0 star option. Food sucked, service was horrible, got charged FOUR DOLLARS to add cilantro. Our bill for 2 taco dinners and waters was $30, when the menu says 8.37 per meal. What? How is that even possible? Wouldn't even budge or explain that. Never going here again. You shouldn't, either.
