Cuisines: Mexican

Really liked this place, with very good tortillas (tasty fish burritos!) and Hot salsa bar. It's certainly nothing fancy, so just go for the food and ignore the lack of ambiance.

A couple blocks from State Street, it was worth the walk for us.

I found this place based on the great reviews. The food is tasty, the service is friendly and the price is right. I will be back for sure.

After every business trip I have to go back and get the Huevos Rancheros. The best flavor combination I have ever experienced. I can also highly recommend their super burrito with a nicely marinated chicken. If you are really hungry go for their beef soup, lots of meat, half a corn on the cob, potatoes, and tortillas. It doesn't look like much but it is! Really nice salsas and a good Horchata. Unfortunately cash only!

You could walk right past and not even know. Dingy building, off path neighborhood. Seemed safe enough. Interior like a prison cafeteria but super clean. Here's where it gets good. Amazing food! We ate gringo style and got pork chile verde and chicken enchiladas. But they had tripe, chorizo and a lot more. Flavorful ruce and beans and many fresh condiments. large portions. Will be more adventurous next time and choose something unique. $25 bucks for two big plates and Mexican Cokes. Walkup service was efficient and barely friendly. Awesome salsa bar. Was fairly busy at lunch. Just a couple blocks off State street. Go now!

If you enjoy REAL Mexican this little out of the way place is just what you are looking for. Great lunch!
