We came here just attracted by the atmosphere and The design of The place. At The beginning everything was fine but, after taking 2 enchilladas we found The meat really bad: The beaf's was Hard to eat and The pork's really really too fat. At The end we paid 540ars$ for 2 enchilladas each, 2 Millers 600cl and 1 french fries with cheese: too much for The quality.

Just spent USD 40 on two beers, some nachos and a "quesadilla."

The beer was Belgian, as no Mexican beer was on offer

The "quesadillas" were in fact just tacos: not grilled, just folded

Only redeeming feature was the service: staff friendly and helpful

A typical Tijuana food and drinks restaurant and bar. Specially good drinks, and recommended food, if you like the Mexican style.. could be a little bit more spicy, but you can ask for additional sauce (the homemade one).

Prices are ok, unless you wan't to try all the different tequilas.

Closed on Mondays.

...switch to Margaritas, of course. Neat little Mexican resto with excellent food and drinks. Don't expect Tex-Mex. Much more varied menu. I had langoustines, my wife had Fajitas Pollo. Great sauces including a very good guacamole. Chips were home made.

Service was good. Great décor for what it is, a Mexican restaurant. Very little English spoken but a little Spanglish will get you by.

Had fun, good food, great margaritas. Real honest place.

Has been the first mexican restaurant in Buenos Aires that I certainly approve!!
It has good margaritas, it gets really close to a real taco and the plates are really abundant (I shared a nachos entrance and a dessert and it was more than okay for the 3 of us). It's a bit expensive but worth for its quantity and good taste. The place is big and nicely decorated. I recommend it and I'll probably visit it once more.
