Even though the food is really tasty and the service super fast I believe there are better places to try typical food. I found it very expensive and the portions not so big considering the prices.

Decadent cabrito but way too pricey. For a small portion of cabrito it set us back almost 350 MXN pesos which for Mexico is very steep. Admittedly the cabrito was delicious and this is a specialty of Monterrey.
