This place is reasonably priced and the breakfast specials are great. The breakfast tacos are always stuffed full. The wait staff is very friendly and they do not rush you. Coffe cup always stays full. Great place to eat and meet friends.

We were here for breakfast and have also had lunch. Both are delicious. From the barbacoa to the green chicken enchiladas taste amazing. Prices are very reasonable and plates have generous servings. A must go try.

The food here is really tasty and delicious. The wait staff are mostly Mexican and Central American nationals who have limited ability to speak English. I had to translate for my English speaking guests because they could not communicate with the waitress. The prices are below average.

This place has improved in their service and food. The breakfast tacos are plentiful and their barbacoa is very good. The flour tortillas are good size. Good wait staff. They don't rush you out.

We love this little hole in the wall. Ask about the daily special (tons of food for a little money). The Jalisco burrito is enormous and super cheap. They have great food at low prices for breakfast lunch and dinner!

this is the place where locals know to go for a great meal. The food is consistently good and they have great lunch specials for a great price. Try this place! It is better than most more expensive Mexican restaurants.

We wanted a simple Mexican dinner after a Saturday Vigil and found this restaurant through Google. We've never been here before but we were feeling a little bit adventurous. The place looked dark from the outside because of the tinted window, we're not sure if there were people inside. We saw a person coming out and so went in. There... More
