Really good, you should try the machito. Good for a couple and family friendly. It is a must to visit, since saltillo is not a big city.

Loved the food. Salsa was one of the best in my life. Delicious!!!! Cabrito was great. A little bit pricey but it is worth for the good food.

I liked the restaurant as a whole, the decoration, the space, obviously the food, the waitress style, etc. The baby Got is the best but the meat is of a high quality.

If you are up to regional food, this is the place, excellent service and fast service. Price is good for what you get and leave room for regional deserts as well.
