My favorite dish is theie sopes. A Masa small bowl,filled with your choice of seafood guacamole or chicken. That or another labor of love, Chile relleno. Full bar and good salsa makes for a fun filled evening.

First time trying real Mexican food and had enchiladas and choke rellano. Really tasty and seemed like it was the real deal. Very good value at less than 10 dollars. Would definitely recommend this one. Service was excellent and we were looked after very well.
