We decided to try this place over Plaza Azteca since we had went there before and it was nothing to rave over I fix better Mexican food at home. Service was great and the food came out pretty quickly

Food was pretty good. ACP dish was amazing, the tamales, not so much. Decent enchiladas. Staff was very friendly and the service was great. B+ minus the tamales.

We walked in as they were shutting down the kitchen for the night, but they quickly agreed to make a pizza for us. We took it back to the hotel and enjoyed it there.
