Sadly this restaurant is no longer in business having been replaced by "Avenue Cafe". Sorry to see it go but hopefully the new place can fill its shoes.

These folks have it down. The meat is always done to perfection and you can't beat the prices. Remember to tip them. A nice place to have in the neighborhood.

The food was tasty, hot and prepared on the spot. Loved the chips and salsa that comes with it. Portions are huge for the burritos and tacos. Recommend the fish taco and the seafood burrito!

Basic American/Mexican smashed beans and rice fare. Shrimp Diablo was swimming in sauce - couldn't finish half my meal. Other meal was a fish taco which my dining partner enjoyed. NIce homemade salsa for chip dipping. Inexpensive, quick and funky.

This small and cozy Mexican restaurant has really good food. You order at the counter and they bring it to your table. I had the chicken enchiladas which were very tasty and my friend had the pork casadia. I will definitely eat here again soon.
