Ate here for breakfast twice when I visited Los Angeles. Restaurant seemed like an authentic Mexican restaurant with vibrant decor. Service was excellent and meals came quickly! The waiters were very polite. I had their Huevos Rancheros (which I highly recommend). However they also do French Toast (the best in the local area), goes best with sausages and bacon. I... More

Servings were most impressive and my carne asada was actually done "medium rare." My companion's chicken was a full half-chicken and equally generous serving size. Everything was truly "real Mexican" and a FAR, FAR cry from Taco Bell, though one still orders at the counter, but the food is brought to your table.

Had an amazing breakfast omelet, they gave me a lot of hash brown. And I enjoyed the free Pico de gallo.

Decent Mexican food but seemed a bit pricey. Perhaps due to the location close to downtown LA. Not particularly good or bad.

We stayed close to this restaurant, checked out the reviews, and gave it a try. The food was very good. My husband and I both had the Chile rellano and guacamole. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was friendly. The only down side was the fast food lay out. It would have been nice to have a server.

Friendly staff who cares. Quality meals at reasonable prices. Nice meat. Good cocktails. For a casual lunch or dinner, it is a nice place to eat.

I ordered the huevos rancheros. Top notch. I loved their condiment bar and the portion was huge. Great value for your money. We plan on returning.

Was in LA for an EXPO. Wanted some place close to the convention center. Checked this place out and it was worth it. It was fast, and the food was great. We knew we hit pay dirt when we realized this place was where all the locals go. It was packed, but we were still able to get a table,... More
