Authentic Mexican food and a menu that has it all including Menudo. Go early for Lunch or Dinner as they are always busy. The food is so good that you think you are in Mexico. Great service with a smile and fast service too.

Okay, I am from the east coast, but sometimes work in San Diego and family in Ventura! I make. Point to go here every time I am within a couple of hours ride. Even the horribly bumpy interstate to LA! The food is that good!...More

Really cool decor and atmosphere. Server wasn't that interested in providing good service. Food was very tasty, portions generous.
