It was not busy but we waited so long for food that I was on the verge of leaving when the food arrived. Also they added a 10 % gratuity on the bill without even asking. Will not go back.

I had the Veracruzana and really enjoyed it. Everything was fresh, the portions were generous and the tortillas were the best out of the other restaurants I visited on the street. This has a great local vibe and prices were very reasonable.
