    Hi Mary, I was excited to find this place not long after my couple trips to Mexicali last year. The tacos didn’t quite measure up to the ones I had at asadero gran ocotlan but I’ve been meaning to come back and try a few more plates. the queso fundido looks quite a meal!!

      Hi Dennis – The queso fundido was quite good! The potato was good, too, but it needed some seasoning and love. We’ll be revisiting to try the other meats they’ve got as well. I think I’ll have to try a mulita next time for my cheese fix.

  2. This place looks legit, love the shot of that extra melty cheese. It reminds me of Tacos El Gordo in Chula Vista!

      Hi J.S. – I’m not sure if they use the same kind of cheese as they do at Tacos el Gordo (baby jack, I believe), but it has a similar texture and creaminess so I wouldn’t be surprised if they were the same (or had some of the same) cheese.
