This place is great for dinner, breakfast is okay not my personal favorite. Small restaurant, sometimes the wait is a little long but the homemade tortillas are to die for !! Not great for big families.

I come here every Sunday morning for menudo with pata. This menudo does not have hominy. The corn tortillas are hand pressed and bomb. I rrally.like the beans here,too.

We were invited to have dinner at this place last night and it was wonderful. It's authentic mexican food from the state of Jalisco at its best. Looking forward to go back soon. Best fajitas I have had ever.

This restaurant is a fair representation of Mexican food from Jalisco a southern state of Mexico.

Like the title it does match since Pico Rivera is 99.9% mexican. But anyway, the food is great here. Not into mexican? Theres burgers...like me im not much of a mexican food fan but my parents are. The atmostphere is old. Such a lil place and it gets crowded on weekends. Waiters are sometimes slow. Yet a place to recommend

The food is very good but the restaurant is a little run down. Imagine a converted Denny's from the 1980, modest, unassuming but it you can overlook the furniture, it is definately a place to take the family. We just ate there last Sunday and it was pretty good. My mom (100% Mexicana) liked it so it had to be... More
