It is a small little place but cozy and the food is made right there in front of you. I like the menudo and the beef tacos are great. It has been in the same location since I was a child.

I LOVED the Huevos A La Mexicana, the dish was PERFECT and I left very fulfilled, however my husband did not care for the eggs and bacon. He felt the bacon was not cooked enough and the scrambled eggs cooked too much. One downside of an open kitchen is that you can see all...sometimes there are things I do not... More

Trying to start out on a good note, they are open 24/7. Food very up and down, one day had very good deshebrada tacos, the next a very tough bistek torta. The service is good and friendly but it may depend on the grill cook on that particular day. Cheap menu, cash only.

You never know who you might run into at this place after the bars close. Popular late night hangout. Good breakfast and ok Mexican food.

If you are wasted beyond belief, need a place that will feed you after the bars close down and do not mind bad slow service, then by all means go. It's just an awful little place, it's so bad that the transvestites that eat here are the only thing that give the place that extra special something. I mean the... More
