Had a dinner there, carnitas were dry the lamb was tough. The service was slow. The wine was expensive compared to other restaurants and was of a poorer quality.

You have to try cazuelita, it is a citric fruit drink with your preferred tequila, I ussually don't mix tequila with anything but this combination is really great. Service is good and fast, despite of the crowd.
