Food is decent, prices are fine. Many many other nearby choices that are the same quality or better for the same price or cheaper. Fried tacos are pretty original though and very tasty!! I like their tamales, not the best. Beans and rice are OK....More

All good solid choice but the enchiladas and fajitas are my favorites. Great margaritas. Plenty of space and any type of seating you might want. In the big dining room, the more secluded, or outside depending on how you feel.

We enjoyed a quick lunch of bean toastadas, beef tacos, and cheese enchiladas. The enchilada sauce was rich and flavorful. The tostadas and tacos were tasty. The fresh salsa and jalepanos added a bit of spice. Definitely a nehigborhood favorite! We will be back.
