Stopped there before a show at Rascals Live. Good local place with decent authentic Mexican food. Quantities are sufficient and prices are realistic. Service was quick and efficient, we will be back

A local place that has better food than it's looks would indicate. I love the dishes made with eggs. They have tacos with eggs and potatoes or eggs, potatoes, and refried beans. The tortillas taste homemade. Or my favorite - eggs a la Mexicana - eggs, peppers, onions, beans with flour tortillas. Very reasonable.
