The beef tacos are very good. Also I love the chicharrones that they give you while you are waiting for your food to be served. Salsas are tasty. Just beware of the waiting times to be seated, the restaurant itself even though it is 2 stories high it is still very small on the inside, there are very few tables... More

20 minute walk from the santa fe bridge. One block away from Mercado Juarez. I felt safe doing the walk during the day. Would probably not do it after dark. Little whole in the wall. But the place was packed...My T-bone was about 1/2 - 3/4 inch thick, beautiful char, and amazing flavor. With dinner you receive a bowl of... More

Delicious steak cuts at very affordable prices. It is one of the oldest restaurants in town, a favorite with the locals for decades. Small and out of the way. Great value.

The meat is tender without spices, the problem is test the place too small and sometimes have to wait long time for a table. Other problem is that they do y accept credit cards. :(

I first reviewed this place in 2011 and my opinion has ha not changed, if your in the town this is the place to eat steaks. Besides the great rib eye, arrachera and t-bone you will love their hand made corn tortillas and beans. If you are really hungry ask for one 'chorizo' or 'rajas' cheese gordita for appetizer, they...
