The food is what sets this place apart from other restaurants. It is absolutely marvelous! The complimentary salsa is made at your table in a molcajete... More

The salsa at this place is prepared at your table. There are some interesting drinks and all the food is great. The Molcajetes are the literally the best in town. Non pretentious nice place to eat centrally located
