Last Thursday two friends and I went to this restaurant to take diner and have a nice chat. The waiter suggested "the special dish" it wasn't in the menu and he convinced us to take it. It was a big dish to share ( thanks that we are sure the sea food was the one that made us sick). The... More

ate here once and got the variety platter, and everything tasted so good! I came back another day so I could order the chili relleno.

We love the chilis rellenos and the fish with garlic. The lemonade is great and so is the beer. The salsa and chips on the house to start are excellent. We are never disappointed.

We had lunch here before heading to the airport and wished we'd stopped in sooner. The breakfast menu looked great, and my quesadilla was delicious.

Came across this place by accident looking for something else. It was busy so it had to be good, right? Food and service were excellent. Best tasting breakfast on this visit and they actually had authentic cafe de olla which seems hard to find! I saw it brewing in a clay pot over the stove. Can't get more authentic than... More
