Read the raves about their tacos and decided to give them a try, but I like crispy and theirs are all soft. Went with nachos instead for the crunch and was not disappointed!
My husband got the burrito and thought it was too heavy on the rice.
Cute place and handy to the Yryp hotel.

This place is simple but cool and very friendly and the food is fresh, tasty, and authentic. Excellent Al Pastor and the beans and rice in the combo was good and also very much like what you get in Mexico and Southern California. The margaritas were also great and a really good deal. I did not see the back room as many reviewers have described but as I was by myself and just there for dinner I didn't mind. Next time.

It's like the classic "hole in the wall" which everyone loves. The food was great. We sat at the counter and watched the cooks. And what a show it was. There was also a hidden room in the back like a speak easy. Well worth the visit.

I love this place! I come to Panama every month, and make it a point to come here each time. One of the owners, Rafael, used to make and sell tacos out of a taco stand and food truck, and his food is still as authentic and delicious! The best part is the speakeasy bar in the back, which serves draft beer from Tres Gatos, a local brewery, and specializes in mezcal creations. The staff is super friendly and attentive - they speak English and Spanish - and it's fun when there's a lot of people in the bar (it's a small room). Spread the word about this hidden gem!

Doesn't look like a lot from the outside, but once inside the small front dining area they'll invite you out the back. Type the code into the payphone on the wall and the door swings open revealing a phenomenal little mezcal bar serving excellent genuine mexican food. Don't miss it
