The title of this review comes from their business card, and is the main reason we went. The restaurant is busy, an excellent sign, but we were seated promptly and given the time we needed to make up our minds. First, try the imported soft drinks (especially the cream soda) -- sweet but satisfying. The pupusas were recommended as was the hot tamale. This restaurant is one of few at which I have eaten that offers goat as one of the meat fillings. And you should satisfy your curiosity, because here it's cooked properly. We recommend the guacamole, the enchiladas and the tacos. Everything tasty and with a dynamite hot sauce if you like adventure. Our server had a wry sense of humour, which added to the enjoyment. HEADS UP; this is a cash-only eatery, not a problem for us.

Our neighborhood go to for all Mexican food if we are getting a fast and cheap meal. This family-run restaurant has been a staple of neighborhood Mexican food for over 20 years. The newest addition to their menu, fish tacos are the best new thing that they have. Always try there array of soups as they have at least three or four on the menu every night. Their signature dish is of course there all day breakfast and if you haven't had it you should definitely try it . Viva Los Tacos

South American craving again and it’s Salvadorian fare for us tonight. The Salvadorian-Style Chicharrón though personally I find it a tad salty this time but it is still a yummy pupusas and crispy beef tacos and pulled pork are just the right spice ... love their in house ajiStaff are always amazing, the washrooms are clean a plus

I've been here a few times. This restaurant used to be across the street, and now they are in a larger space. Tacos are my favourite. I've tried tamales but they were too bland. They only take cash though.

This is one of the hidden gems of Toronto. It started as an unassuming tiny place with limited seating and has now moved to larger digs almost across the street. The address at the time of writing this review is wrong.

Everything on the menu is fantastic. In particular, the tacos, burritos and papusas.
