Good place for lunch or dinner

Very busy locale. One of the most popular places in this part of town. Owners are very nice, gave has spots on Spanish TV shows showing techniques. Different from regular taco places. More eclectic. Recommend getting there early for lunch or dinner.

I was hoping that the food would be as good as all the reviews and bloggers said it was. It was a bit of a drive from where we were, but it was worth it. Try not to be dismayed by the location at it is not exactly a high-end area. The actual restaurant is a stark contrast to the... More

Most Europeans tend to think Mexican food is just nachos and tacos. What a great discovery this was. Just fantastic!!! Everyone was very friendly and the food was amazing. Thank you!!!

Surprised how great this was. Not your typical taco shop. This is a nice restaurant complemented by excellent and freshly prepared food with staff that are happy you are there. They are helpful and quite nice. Both our dishes were well prepared, served at the right temperature and we only waited a short time to be served. The chips with... More

By far one of the best Mexican restaurants in the country. Haven't had meals this amazing outside of Mexico. It rivals Marta Ortiz's Dulce Patria. Was upset at waiter for taking empty plates that still had remnants of sauce on them. Wanted every drop. Before we left I was already planning my return. Not in Los Angeles proper, but well... More

I loved the restaurant! My friend and I randomly picked this place to have dinner and catch up but we couldn't stop eating and talking about how good our food was! We had the QUESO AZTECA., never had it before and it was amazing! Mostly because I love cheese. The mole on the chips was tasty too.

It's very Orange. The art is eclectic and authentic. There is a little store area to buy souvenirs. First comes chips with a trifecta of sauces on them. A spicy dark sauce, a cheesy sauce and a green guacamole (or verde) sauce. All were very good. Sopa (soup) comes with each meal. Today it was potato soup, which was very... More

The mole here is delicious! There are three different kinds to choose from. We also tried a very unique stuffed pepper (but I forgot the name of the dish) They have the most different michelada I've ever had, made with tamarindo. The place has a good vibe and great food, will be coming back.
