Oh. My. Goodness! This place! I have been singing their praises since I went there for a late lunch with my family on Friday. SO DELICIOUS. I have literally suggested it for every meal since I last ate it. It was a Friday like any other. We decided to try this place because, hey... tacos are delicious. We settled in and ordered our food. The menu was way more extensive than I had expected it to be. They have something called Molcajete that looked like a big ol' hodge podge of awesome served in a (you guessed it) molcajete. They also had ceviche tostados that almost swayed me, but I have a rule that when you visit a restaurant for the first time, you order the specialty of the house, which meant tacos. I got the 3 taco meal with rice and beans. They were out of beans, but that didn't matter at all. The rices was flavorful and good, but the tacos... THE TACOS!!!!! I had the Pastor (Pork w/ pineapple marinated in a red sauce), Birria (shredded beef in the house sauce) and Adobada (pork in red sauce). All were served on house made corn tortillas with onion, tomato, cilantro and lime and some red taco sauce and some green taco sauce all on the side. The heavens opened and the veil was lifted from my eyes upon the first bite! I will NEVER be able to go back to Americanized tacos. The flavors were so perfect, so simple, so delicious... and with a Modelo Especial... it was all a miracle in my mouth. It was all so good that my husband decided he wanted MORE tacos because the thought of ending this delicious spiritual journey into the land of taco was just too much to bear. He got the lengua tacos. I had never eaten tongue before, but after eating one lengua taco, I was ready to flip a table at my having been denied such magical meat for 32 years of life. If you can't tell, I really liked this place. Highly recommend it. — Anonymous Reviewer

This place is a hidden gem in Winchester. The food is excellent and the service is great! The tortas cubanas is a delicious sandwich that is nearly as large as a person's head! It's HUGE and delicious! The burritos, ceviche, quesadillas, etc are all good....even the coffee exceeded my expectation. The coffee is rich and dark yet not bitter at all like most dark roasts are. My family really enjoyed each dining experience here and look forward to try more menu items! — Anonymous Reviewer
