Food is Navajo/Mexican food and you gotta love the flavors to eat here. Most dishes are spicy and very large. The small plates are basically 2 appetizers, so definitely value for your money. The food was average and so was the service.

I had a Navajo pizza there, it was really quite tasty. There are several unique foods on the menu, plus it's in Telaquepaque Center, so the atmosphere is pretty nice.
