The place is big and nice for a simple family lunch or dinner especially if you have kids with you. Very affordable and their tortilla is fresh and tasty.

If you're in the mood for a Sonoran hot dog, look no further than El Guero Canelo. The hot dog itself is delicious but the roll they serve it in is really soft and chewy. They also have a lovely condiments bar with all sorts...More
