Walked over to La Bruja for a mid day snack since reviews were so rave. Ordered the ceviche, limonadas and some chicken empanadas which were all larger portions than I imagined and delish. The chips were fresh and hot and the best I had on...More

Our family had lunch here. Very friendly service seating our large group together quickly. Best chips, guacamole, and pico de gallo! We had a marinade steak, chicken, shrimp or pork tacos served with fresh tortillas. Very good!

My daughter suggested this after a visit a year ago. It is not on a main street, and a bit off the beaten track, but worth the find. It was down to earth basic food that was just perfect. Not to make it seem less...More
