This is one of those places that's kind of hidden with just few tables but the food is good. The nachos with mole and carnitas (it's huge) and the salmon tacos are great.

Can’t just call it food...too good. We had Sunday Brunch—chile relleno stuffed with egg and bacon, shrimp enchiladas in a fabulous green chili, huevos rancheros and a luscious key lime pie popsicle for dessert. Totally delicious. If you like shrimp, you MUST try these enchiladas.
