While I haven't tried absolutely everything on the menu, this "hole in the wall" that is located in a former Del Taco building is probably some of the best Mexican food I've found since moving to the Truckee Meadows over four years ago from Lake Tahoe and over 10 years ago from Los Angeles. I've had the Carne Asada tacos and burritos. The best burrito I've had was made with Carnitas. The tamales (only available in Pork or Chicken) are as good as my mom ever made (sorry mom). Just the right texture and seasoning. You can have the tamales dry or with an Enchilada sauce. The best tacos I've had were made with Lengua (tounge). They also offer what some would consider more exotic ingredients like tripe and head but certainly more traditional meats are available. They offer breakfast (the Chorizo con Huevo is excellent), lunch specials, platters, desserts, and a drive-thru. The place may not look like much and the TV is a little loud sometimes, but overall I think anyone that visits will be throughly satisfied. Update: I just went by this place last night to try and get some food for work. The place is closed. There is a sign out front telling everyone that they had a fire. There is burnt insulation in front. They don't know when they will reopen. I'm sad. This is my favorite taqueria in Reno :(

I tried this place last week and i liked it alot. The salad was amazing, and we also ordered a tofu stir fry dish. Super healthy and the veggies and tofu were cooked perfectly. You can tell that lots of love goes into each dish made. On our way out we grabbed a white chocolate and blueberry coffee cake that was to die for. I recomend for an intimate evening out with some healthy grub.
Terrific meal we ordered the shrimp enchiladas and the chile rellenos and both of the dishes were very tasty. We think that the sauces and the service were excellent. The only downer of the meal was this sopapillas dessert which was not that good but since it only costs $0.25 with your meal it wasn't that important. We would definitely recommend going there for a good Mexican meal.
