I had lunch here recently and the food was very good. I ordered the Carnitas which was a generous portion and well made. Came with my choice of corn or flour tortillas on the side.

I read great reviews of this restaurant but I found it bland, with really slow service (and we were there at 3pm). The house made tortillas were good, but nothing that went on them was good. Keep walking.

My wife had the Estofado de pollo and the chicken was tender with very nice sauce. She really loved it. I had the shrimp blanco also tasty and sauce well done. The hand made tortillas further complement the lunch.

We stopped for a bite to eat, and I ordered taco and enchilada. It was served cold and had no taste. Watching the men eating in the kitchen as they made the food was off putting as well. Too bad, because the chips were great.
