I know there were a lot of tourists there but it felt like we were eating with the locals in the heart of the town. Food was exceptional. Prices were good. Unique "Aztec" decor.

We were told by locals that this place had the best pizza - they were absolutely correct. Not only was the thin crust pizza excellent, the staff were willing to allow us to add toppings (seafood) not included as options on the menu. Timely, efficient service, fair pricing.
