At one time this was one of my favorite places in San Jose. But time has not been good to it. The food and service have both gone downhill a bit. Sad.

Came here once and was so not a fan I haven't been back. There is much better Mexican food out there. Maybe not in this general neighborhood but it is out there. I had a simple Carne Asada burrito. Nothing tough and it still didn't seem right. IDK if I hit them up on a bad day or what. Regardless... More
