In kind of a gritty location and the table was quite sticky to the touch. Once I got the table relatively squared away, my server was quite competent and the generously sized servings were quite acceptable. Not sure I'd go out of my way to...More

A busy restaurant at a freeway intersection. Adequate Mexican food, but nothing remarkable. Atmosphere was OK, if a bit noisy.

Good value food in generous portions and a nice friendly atmosphere. They had a band on the night we were there but only saw the start due to jet lag. Looked like good fun.

The place is right off the 101 @ Market. Food is good and inexpensive, the wait staffs are friendly and live music on Saturday night. Can't beat that! You know you hit the jackpot when the place has a lot of Hispanics eating there!
