this place is incredible, it's a small grocery store, meat market and they run a takeout or eat in restaurant -- the food is AMAZING, everything is made from scratch right there, absolutely unbelievable -- great prices, friendly people -- very insider, in fact, i regret even writing this review

I went here initially because I knew it was opened by local business owners and wanted to show support. The food is ordered at the counter cafeteria style and then brought to your table - or there is a drive-thru option. The best description I can think of for the food is that it is similar to a good food truck. Everything is served as individual orders so you basically make your own meal and it is served in baskets. The sauces are very spicy and the food is authentic Mexican.

The dining area isn't anything special, but it is a comfortable space. Lots of room. The menu has a good balance between authentic and Tex-Mex. I ordered their Suiza burrito with lengua. The lengua was perfectly cooked and had that hearty beefy flavor that is pot roast like. The burrito was massive and chalked full with lots of goodies. The chips and chunky pico/salsa were awesome. The pico/salsa is fresh and packs some heat from the fresh chilies. Service was fine, nothing special. It isn't my favorite Mexican restaurant in the QC, but it is pretty darn good.

As I was walking around Rock Island district, waiting for friends to pick me up, I stumbled across this place that serves Mexi-Terranian food and drinks. I had no intentions of eating Mexican food since I'm visiting from El Paso and can get it any time, but I was intrigued. I'm so glad I went in! I had the posole verde and an amazing side salad of fresh Romaine lettuce, pear slices, walnuts and shredded parmesan in a delectable peppery vinaigrette dressing. The posole was the perfect flavor with shredded chicken and crisp sliced radish. The chips included were crisp, appropriately salted and not the least bit greasy. That combo was an easy $7! I paired it with a tasty margarita and had sangria for dessert. I highly recommend this place and wish I knew about it earlier during my trip!
