But if you go on the weekend get there before 8am or expect a loooooong wait. This is a traditional Mexican restaurant with probably the best chilaquiles in town (especially if you order them crispy, with little sauce and with queso fresco instead of melted...More

I had been wanting to try La Espadana for some time and was not let down whatsoever. We enjoyed Sunday breakfast but I do recommend arriving earlier rather than later. Upon us leaving it was clear there was a significant wait outside towards later lunch/brunch...More

I had the chilaquiles with mole- it was too sweet for my taste. I have had great mole elsewhere. My dad liked the Machaca Ranchera he ordered. The menu is fairly limited. I'm surprised at how popular this place is.
