There are several very good restaurants that lie just west of the freeway. Also nearby, are several shops that offer interesting merchandise. If You travel beyond the tourist part of Mexicantown, there is a vibrant community, although the people are poor, they are very proud. I was quite humbled, when I took a friend, who is blind, through the neighborhood.... More

I have yet to find anyone who doesn't like the food and service. I take people here and they rave about it. This is just one of many great Mexican restaurants in the area and it's one of the consistently good places to eat.

I was expecting a better experience than i actually had. The carne asada was pretty good but the enchiladas were sub par.

Not a very big neighborhood but we managed to get fantastic Mexican food in the area. Worth a trip for lunch or dinner. The bakery smelled fantastic.

I've only been to this restaurant twice, and both times, they were excellent. I hope to go back many times in the future. They are close to the Canadian border, so if you are using a GPS, the restaurant is difficult to find because the GPS signal gets jammed.
