If you like tacos and burritos you will like this place. I went there for Chili Rellenos and they did taste good. But they looked something that would come out of Mom's kitchen.

This is a Mexican restaurant. It is good and fast. They offer many particular dishes, like cow tongue and the insides of the cow as well. The food is good, if you like to try new foods.
