we have been going here since they first opened. Felipe is just a fantastic host and owner. He remembers what you drink and is so appreciative of your visit. Food is excellent and so affordable given that it is the hotel zone . A must have experience

I missed this place the first time I walked by. It was only on the way back that I realized this.

We visited on Saturday Feb 4, 2017 for dinner. Filipe, the owner, is so friendly! I had steak fajitas and my wife had chicken quesadillas. Large portions, well seasoned and perfect temperature. Good prices, great value!

The food and service were great at this little restaurant. The location is also easy to get to. My husband, my two kiddos (6yo and 8yo) and I were happy with the food and drink options.

The trip isn't complete without visiting Felipe. Good time and great cheap food and beer. Mexico is already great!
