A bit of a walk away from the popular 5th Avenue, but very much worth it. Everything is delicious. We went around 6pm and were able to sit down immediately, it got busy later. This is worth the trip!

We ended up here accidentally. And I'm so happy we did. Its off of la Quinta as we were walking back to Calle 38. Had tacos al pastor and some quesadillas. Excellent service. The hostess was certainly more concerned about seating arrangements than us. Im...More

Came here on recommendation of someone who previously visited. Food was good, but not really any better quality than you’d find in a big city in the US. I didn’t taste the difference between these tacos and any I’ve had at a good Mexican restaurant...More

Sorry thought you were asking about another place. Here I had tacos I forget the Spanish word for what it was but it was first on the menu and we got a variety. We also got a burrito type thing and that was great as well.
