Foursquare Tips

  • The best cheese and green chile tamales, as well as tacos de carnitas (order with everything!). They also sell their spongy hand-made corn tortillas to go.
  • If you like Tamales....you will LOVE this place!
  • Opened in 1967. Boyle Heights market and authentic carniceria specializing in homemade tortillas and Mexican food served take-out counter style.
  • Their 8 dollar super burrito is more than enough for two people to split.
  • The sheep's head meat taco is a go-to. The secret is in the dried corn of the tortilla, which imparts a slightly acidic tang. And god forbid you make any changes to this taco by adding hot sauce.
  • good food and good services
