Great authentic menu. I had a hard time choosing what I wanted and felt like none of the choices would've been a bad one. Loved the quiet atmosphere and great service. Sopes de carne asada were to die for.

Since the place doesn't accept reservations, the approx wait to have a table is 1 hour, and then it took us about 30mn to get our food. The food was okay, nothing spectacular.
