“Should I be selfish?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

I almost hate to review this restaurant and spread the word. Trying not to be selfish here, as I really like the relatively short lines at lunch time, but this place is awesome!! It's authentic, friendly, small, and you can watch your food being prepared! The food is fresh, flavorful, original, and attractive!

Seating is limited and most of their business seems to be takeout. Hours are also limited (lunchtime Monday-Thursday, and lunch-dinner Friday and Saturday). They have daily specials like Chile Rellenos, street tacos, and Horchata to name a few. I have to be honest (but I hate to) - this place is a must visit for lovers of Mexican food!
