Cheap, yummy Mexican food. Several choices of ingredients. When we went we were the only gringos in the place. Staff only spoke Spanish but were very kind and efficient.

We highly recommend this little restaurant. It isn't fancy but the food is so tasty. The staff are so nice and very efficient. It is always busy with dining in customers and take out. They have a nice variety of food on their menu.

When staying in a hotel one of the staff suggested Sandra's. It was a wonderful surprise just pure local food, great flavours & great staff. Oh did I mention great prices. We eat here on our way to the beach about 3 times a week....More

We ate here a couple of times, and we still remember the food! Oh my! So delicious... It is a place where locals go, so don't expect AC, but it has great food. Always busy. Cheap. Totally recommend it.

This place has a lot of great local food to enjoy and is frequented mainly by locals. That being said the food here is absolutely delicious. We had panuchos, sopes, empanadas, gringas, and tortas. The prices are awesome too. The staff are friendly.

Cheap tacos (less than a dollar each) and various other little bits and pieces. Busy place with a mix of locals and tourists. Its near where the collectivos pick up and drop off.
