This was definitely one of the better eateries in the 5th ave area. It's a little warm inside the restaurant, but it is Mexico. The wait staff are pleasant but in a bit of a rush to get an order in. I'm not a huge...More

Its not my restaurant, i just eat there a lot. They will take US and Mexican pesos but always best to pay for anything in Mexico with Pesos because they will always give you a bad exchange rate if you use Dollars.
