Most of the time we visited this restaurant was in the late evening and you can tell they have great food from the amount of people eating there. Usually the owners son took care of us and every meal was just fantastic. Once you eat here, you will always come back and we guarantee that.

I have been going to this restaurant for years and I took two Americans with me and they LOVED the Chicken Tostadas (tostadas de pollo)..............great Mexican food. And for those Americans that don't eat Mexican food, they have hamburgers and French fries for you!

Visited their place years ago and it was very good. This time was during "high season" and was not up to my standards, service little slow and did not have an English menu.

This is as ordinary a dive as you can find. We visit Mexico a lot and my fiancee is Mexican, and this place just is not good enough to be in any discussion of where to eat. It is open air, but it has plastic chairs and no ambiance. The service is ok and the food is edible, but that... More

Usually when a cab driver recommends a place to tourists I am very cautious because they usually just recommend an expensive restaurant. We took his word because we asked for good local food. He said this place had great green pozole. Served with all the sides. What a disappointment! It had no flavor at all. Insipid would be a compliment.... More

Food and service was good. Had the chili rellenos as I heard they were good. Sauce a little runny but OK

The salsas and guacamole are great but the main dishes are just ok. Good atmosphere and service though.

We stayed near el zorrito and it was way better than number 81. The staff was freindly, the food was good and plentiful and the assorted tacos was awesome with the chips, salsa and beans. The atmosphere was also quite lively at 7pm which most places were empty at that time of day, not this one.

We enjoyed this place 3 times during our short stay because the food was authentic and good. The place is cute and had great service. The waiter even helped us catch a cab at a "non-American" price.
