Came here with family on a Friday nite. There was a long wait. Popular places have that! Once seated we were waited on after a few minutes. I had a taco meal, that was ok, but the meat was quite dry. I tried a taste of some of the other dishes at the table and found them to be authentic... More

Have been here for breakfast and dinner, both of which were wonderful. Great selection of true Mexican specialties for breakfast. The mole is some of the best. I especially love the chilies en nowadays.

The only drawback I can see to this restaurant is the size! As a result the place is almost always full, just when you're hungry and ready to chow down. And so you are usually consigned to a small crowd of people on the sidewalk wishing the current diners would depart so you can take their place. Once in though,... More

Very nice, pleasant surroundings. This is not a hole-in-the-wall. We had to take street parking, no meter. We had one of the lunch specials, two tacos with rice and beans. They make their own tortillas. The corn are thick, soft and very good. The beef taco was served with just meat, so you could add some of your beans and/or... More

Our family's favorite Mexican restaurant in all of LA. The margaritas are great! Only need one to kick in. (Note: Wednesdays are $5 marg night.) As locals, we love the arrachero beef nachos heaped with guacamole and jalapanos. The caldo de pollo "chicken soup" is the best. The corn tortillas are handmade. Everything is so unique. No burritos or seafood... More

This place is great! The service and food are awesome. Great find, thanks to my Trip Advisor app. Yummy. ❤️ My friend and I both had the chicken soup and a taco. It was a lot of food. I just had the left overs for lunch today. The homemade corn tortillas are fantastic.

It's hard to find a good place to have breakfast that is a Mexican Restaurant. We finally found it. Dinner was great when we first went there a month ago and just finally made it there for breakfast. Great choices, friendly service

We love their nachos so we get the same thing all the time. Many friends swear by the food. Margaritas are ok. Service seems to be a bit disorganized. Too long of a delay between seating and service.
