Friendly, quick service and good food keep us returning nearly every time we are in the area. Everything on the menu is very good. A San Cris tradition you should not miss.

Tacos were 14 pesos and tamales 20. I had three items for lunch and was contented. They also do takeaway meat, 60 for 1/4 kg, including tortillas and onions. Would highly recommend.

Great little restaurant with a funky, colourful interior. The menu is simple (Cochinita Pibil on a variety of bases - tacos, tortas, etc.). Served with a selection of salsas in cute wee jars. Great prices and friendly staff. Highly recommend!

Absolutely delicious food and lovely vibe. Very cheap - tacos and tostadas $14 pesos each, including lots of toppings. Horchata and Cocoa tea were also delicious. Total cost was $140 pesos for food and drinks for two people. Can't wait to go back!!

One of my favorite mexican plates is cochinita pibil and this place definitely nails it! The best is you can order one of each plate on the menu and they're all worth it. Specially the Gringa (made with green flour).
