Good food, excellent service

We came here a Sunday afternoon by accident and we were pleased with tasty food and very attentive service. Nice atmosphere, Mexican/Spanish influenced food, and friendly service. A must!

The place is old, good service, most of the time you´ll find a table; they try to be courteous and prompt with the service, drinks are fair enough,period.

This place is on the side street next to the City Express Insurgentes Sur hotel, and across from the Fiesta Inn hotel. We had drinks only so can't report on the food. The service was excellent and very attentive. There is valet parking. There is live entertainment at certain times.
