It was the first time my husband was visiting Mexico we met up with with my family for dinner. The place was great as you first walk in the ambience was very welcoming authentic decor real mariachi were playing music, cold beer they're salsa was delicious home made and warm. The food was delicious juicy cuts of steak. The tortillas homemade and warm. It was so good we decided to come again for brunch the next day. I was impressed they had a buffet and a lady making hand made tortillas and quesadillas made to order, posole, menudo. I can't wait to go back.

Its been about 25 yrs since I came last to Nuevo Laredo, my mum and grandma used to come here frequently, they kept talking about this place (their last visit about 5 yrs ago) so we went there, They kept talking about their fantastic norteño style cabrito, we settled in, the place was packed, therefore service was slow, they brought salsas and totopos, both salsas were absolutely flavorless and not spicy at all, we ordered some choriqueso, chicharron and guacamole with corn tortillas, the tortillas were good, fresh made, the chicharron was ok the guacamole was no guacamole, it was a simple mushed avocado again with no flavor what so ever.
Ordered our entries, I ordered the cabrito, The size of the portion was very nice, a nice piece of breast, it looked delicious, cooked to perfection, didn't even need a knife to cut it, when it reached my mouth, no flavor... looks nice, well cooked but no flavor.
The place is not worth it.

My wife and I visit frequently and have always enjoyed the food and the entertainment. Service is great and the beer is cold.

It's the place to go for breakfast in Nov Laredo on weekends. Also the best carnitas and chicharron in town.
