Food and service was disappointing. A fast food chain for basic dishes like fajitas is a better option.

This place has good Mexican food and their salsa is good but my favorite is the chicken soup (xlolchi) with fresh avacado slices and fresh cilantro. The young staff is always cheerful and friendly. It's a good local place and families welcome too.

I find their cooking style to my liking, being starved of Tex-Mex in Australia. This place is handy being close to LAX on Sepulveda and there is easy parking within walking distance.

This is a very small uninviting restaurant BUT the food is great!! We ate there two nights in a row. I had the mahi mahi was my choice both nights. I loved it. Make sure you ask to have jalapeno peppers added.

The service was great, fast and efficient. The food just left a lot to be desired. The chips were okay, not restaurant tortilla chips though. The salsa wasn't bad and they give you lots. The guacamole was cut with something and had little to no...More
