This restaurant is complete Mexican, I truly recommend this restaurant for its food and price. If you wanna eat some typical Mexican food this is the best place to go in the mornings.

The food here is great, local, and well priced! I remember eating here as a child and the food did not disappoint. We ordered Gorditas, Picadas, empandas, and enfrijoladas. They were the best gorditas (dulce) that I have ever had.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite places to enjoy breakfast, the food is amazing and you have many options on the menu. Normally the restaurant is packed and it is more likely to wait for 15 or 20 minutes once...More
