I wanted some chilaquiles. We looked this place up. It is a popular spot for a good reason. It is still what I call Americanized food, but good. I ate my chilaquiles very happily.

I've heard people say this place has won awards for their food. Seriously I don't know how! Small place, poor service and terrible food. I didn't care for it at all. We won't be going back there.

I love the food at this restaurant. Every dish that my family and I have ordered has been delicious, authentic and beautifully presented. Another reason to visit is their "aguas" which are made fresh each day.

We were with business associates that have dined here before, and upon first impression, the décor was inviting. We were promptly greeted and served two types of salsas. One was a green roasted chili salsa...delicious! However, the tasteless chips accompanying the salsas were thick and...More
