Tucked away and out of site. We stumbled upon this amazing Mexican restaurant. We had a fantastic fried burrito with enough left over for a second meal! Yumm

Very hard to find. Our waiter was not helpful nor did he seem to care about what we wanted on our dish. The tortillas are marginally good. The service was terrible and the food was mediocre at best. Better places to dine for the same price

I also can't have onions, which can be a bit difficult in the mexican arena. However, they recently changed their menu to have... More

We had the tacos here. The steak and fish tacos were wonderful, but the waiter was busy and stressed out and showed it by being very curt and throwing things around in the little kitchen upstairs.

The goat-cheese and beet empanada was superb, and the house-made jamaica drink is not to be missed. No one serves; go back downstairs and get your plate when called.
