This is where the locals eat. The place is packed, super inexpensive and sooooo delicious. The service is great, and the food is amazing. This is where you get to experience the real mexican food made from scratch. Don't hesitate and go!!!!!!

The atmosphere wasn't what we expected, real plain but the food was great. The price was excellent, very clean and the staff did understand our English.

Absolutely delicious pozole. The broth is rich and savory, everything on the menu is made in house and there is a reason why it's always full. Keep in mind they are closed on Mon and Tues.

This isn't the kind of place we'd normally drop into, but word of mouth and these good reviews sent us there last night and we'll definitely be back. Very simple, but delicious and cheap.
