Stopped in with wife and a couple of friends. Don’t let the rustic appearance fool you, the food here in fantastic. The pickled vegetables and chips with various sauces are great. Couple with a ice cold beer and enjoy the street scene passing by.
The owners Gustavo and Rufino stopped by to check on us and to answer dinner questions. They both were fluent in English. We had the garlic shrimp and they brought us some wonderful guacamole.
Rufino prepared us a custom dessert with coconut ice milk.
This place is like visiting a relative, we were treated so special.
I would eat here every night! Give it a try , you won’t be disappointed!

I could not wait to bring my boyfriend and friends here first off to meet Gustavo and Ruffino and also for them to experience the warm and welcoming feeling you get when you arrive and throughout your whole meal. The food was really good from the guacamole to garlic shrimp and the chicken enchiladas. Unfortunately there will be no more coconut ice cream. Ruffino made up for it though he bought a couple coconut and cream popsicles and chopped it up into a couple glasses and added some kahlua soooo good and refreshing! Thank you both, everyone enjoyed their meal and meeting you. Hoping we can get back before we leave.

Returned again and it was a wonderful dining experience. Gustavo and Rufino make you feel like you are back at home. Tamales and Chili’s this visit and they were excellent.
