Nice little restaurant on Avenida Quinta. They are open early for a great breakfast and stay open until late. It is a mix of Mexican and regulare food. The portions are large and the staff is always friendly and efficient.

There are a couple Vagabundas in town , both on 5th Ave. The menu selection is decent as are the prices. I typically stop there for a quick lunch when I am running errands.

Ate there several times for different meals, never had a bad one. Staff friendly and quick; Beer Cold and Food Hot! Plus they take credit cards which is a plus so you don't have to deal with conversions. Highly recommended!!! Muy Bueno!

Saw this dish land on the next table, had to order it. It's a few small chimichanga's landed on top of an unusual fajita mix, covered with some sauce that was unique (to us). Good dish, served with tortillas. Fachanga, doesn't that just make you smile?

Me and my friend just visit Mexico and this restaurant was the first we visited. The food was awesome, really great service, thank you to Alejandro and other people. The prices are pretty good compare to other places at 5th av. so far that one of the best restaurant on my list even thought from outside doesn't looks like it... More

Consistently great, fresh juices, Steaming coffee, fresh hot entrees, fast service, atmosphere of people watching on the street. Yucateca divorciados always a favorite. The chilaquiles are also great

We were passing, so had a look at the menu. None of the usual pressure to go in. Nice food, excellent cocktails, and even the post-meal double espresso was well above standard. And it was very reasonable. Recommended.

We stopped for lunch because the place looked fun with all the drawings and thoughts and lyrics on the wall. There was Latino music and the waitress was smiling. I ordered the Vagabunda margarita (with cranberry juice) and received a drink so big I called it an aquarium. It wasn't too tart and I had a buzz after finishing it!... More
