Big portions of delicious Mexican fare. Wine and beer available, but no liquor license (so no Margaritas). Service is quite efficient. Not fancy, but a quaint friendly atmosphere. All in all, a good choice for Mexican food in downtown SB.

This little place has quite a following, and we were not disappointed! Order at the counter, collect your salsas & drinks, find a table in the first-come-first-sit dining area, and enjoy your company as you wait for your fresh food to be served. There's a...More
