My wife (Mexican) stopped by for lunch and were delighted with food. The tacos, the ochata, the pozole and the guac were simply delicious and truly authentic. Bring cash as they were not taking cards at the time!

The food wasn't that great, and with so many Mexican options in our area it isn't worth a return trip.
