Had a breakfast quesadilla and a beef soup after a morning run- the food was good but the bathroom was not very clean.

The goodness is real. Tacos al pastor were tasty enough that I went twice and I was thrilled to find chicharrones on the menu. The staff was super patient as I practiced my terrible Spanish. Great spot to hang out and enjoy a meal.

I was thrilled to find a place that served a good barbacoa with beef! In this area of Mexico, that's a rarer find. Their tacos are delicious, juicy and tender. Quesadillas are made with the thicker masa and are not to be missed.

We came here for dinner, was mostly empty. Service was nice, the server tried his best explaining the entrees in English. We had the chorizo tacos and pollo alambres, and both were very flavorful and yummy. We ran out of days, but would have loved...to visit them again.More

My partner and I read some excellent reviews about this place and they were true! It's a very unassuming restaurant with tasty quality food, reasonably priced, and marvellous staff. Our waiter was Carlos and although he spoke little English and we spoke little Spanish he...guided to us to two awesome dishes to order. We had the Alambra arachera and the costra arachera. If you like cheese they are not shy with it in their meals. We were so happy with this find and we will be back with friends and family. Gracious Carlos, the rest of the staff and the chef!!!!!More

The place offers authentic Mexican food, like the type you'll find in Mexican Homes. Loved the guacalome sauce and the Consome de Barbacoa. Very Affordable!

Good place to get some informal food in an interesting setting under the entrance to the Plaza de Toros bullfighting ring. Nice open air tables, handmade tacos, cochinita pibil, good aguas frescas - we had jamaica (hibiscus) which seemed very natural without added sugar.

Watched our food cooked in front of us on the griddle. Felt almost Japanese. Arachera a favorite. Not much English, but we muddled through.
