This is more than a sit down place. Cops, truckers, office workers also stop in to buy/take away their excellent breakfast burritos. Their signature dish is their tamales. Again, you can eat in or take out, and they have a variety so that if you are a non-meat eater you are still satisfied. The staff are so friendly and personable it feels often like you are in your mom's kitchen. Parking on the street or across the street--and yes it is safe. They open at 6 am in general, so it is easy to stop in on the way to work. Eat in area is a reasonable size, not real big though (bigger than Lupita's but smaller than Xochimilco's.)
