I'm glad I found this place, just down the street from my business meeting. Arriving a little early for the lunch hour we were seated immediately and not a moment too soon. Before we finished our meal, the place was packed. Always a good sign.
The menu is simple and is printed on the table tops. The waiter hands you a ticket and a pen and leaves while you take your time perusing the choices and jotting down your order. When ready, the waiter returns, quickly verifies what you've ordered and is off again.
Our beverages came quickly, as did a variety of salsas accompanied with tostadas. Before we knew it, the waiter reappeared with our food. Since the menu is basically made up of a la carte choices, it took several trips to bring all our dishes. The portions are huge and the food is tasty. Others have called it "Mexican comfort food" and I agree. At our table we enjoyed 3 different pozoles, flautas, quesadillas, tacos, and finished off with two kinds of flan. All our plates left the table empty!
The only negative that I would mention, and it's a minor one, was that the restaurant got so busy that we had a little trouble flagging down our waiter to order dessert and then to ask for the check. But even that was not because of poor service, that young man was almost running from table to table, as were the other myriad of waiters.
All in all, a very positive experience and a super value. Lunch for 4 persons, including all the food, beverages, desserts, and tip was about what I'd pay for 2 people at many restaurants. I'll be back!
