At first glance the place looks like an iffy diner, but once inside the atmosphere is casual but cool and the food is mighty tasty. They make much of their menu from scratch (proudly told to me by the bartender) and she was right. Homemade chips and salsa was a good start. I had 2 enchiladas, one with chicken, the... More

Mexico City restaurant is very popular and for good reason. It has a solid, pretty extensive Mexican cuisine menu with choices in every category. It's quaint and full of retro furniture, red vinyl seats and all. Parking exists in back of the restaurant but it is quite tight back there and only a few spaces marked for the restaurant, but...

Amazing food, company, and most of all ambience. The margaritas are insane. This epic establishment is a mix of mod and mex.

Wonderful little Mexican restaurant in Los Feliz! Great service, and excellent food. Lots of choices on their menu. Margaritas were delicious, and the steak fajitas are fantastic!

Been eating here for years and years, and it's normally very good. Sometimes it's hit or miss, but the staple items are always great. I love the stuffed peppers. The salsas are super tangy...you will want to drink them they're so good. And that will come in handy since the bar has a stingy pour.

Mexico City has so much to offer distant travelers like myself. The history of the city along with the friendly people and good weather make this one of my favorite cities to visit. The prices are cheap and the food and shopping are unique. Must visit
