Went to this restaurant with local friends that recommended it because of its real Mexican dishes and good value. It was no disappointment for sure, their frozen Margaritas excellent, their tacos variaron broad and delicious and their dessert options if you have space sweet. Worth going no doubt

Good mexican food, not fantastic but as good as it gets, not too expensive, arrachera tacos are very good, same as sopa de tortilla.

OK, let's start. This is a restaurant for picky eaters or people that don't like assertive flavors or spice. The salsas are bland, no heat at all but good tasting. Everything was ok but lacked the flavor that should have been there. The Chile Rellenos were edible, the cheese filling had a very bland cheese so hard to tell it's even there and the tomato sauce they're topped with was just light tomato, nothing spectacular, I expected more. The Sweet Mole Enchiladas were sooo sweet you couldn't eat them, yuck. Their refried beans (they don't use lard at all) were made in a blender sort of and lacked the punch they should have. The fried panela was ok for someone on a diet or with health issues. Ordered a Cafe Lechero and they used regular coffee instead of an infusion so with the heated milk added made it super bland, I didn't drink it. Ugh made me mad. So even though the place is nice, it has NO noise cancelling materials and you can hear everyone's conversations, the silverware and the children crying!!!! Super noisy place, badly designed so waiters have to keep circling tables to reach you, hard to navigate within the place. All in all it was a failed visit since we were expecting good Mexican food and all we got was passable food. Fail

I will not bother you with my long story, I will just let you now that the food in this place is mediocre, fatty, cold and expensive. You may get a better local taste in other authentic and smaller places for a much better and reasonable price.

Very good food, and absolutely exceptional service. A very good option to enjoy with the family. I would say that even though the food is very good, the price is somewhat expensive.
