This is surprisingly good Mexican food. My favorite dish, fish tacos. This is also the place I go to buy tortillas. The Chicharones are fresh, but something of a surprise if you are used to commercial 'cracklin's, as gringos call them.

We stopped for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Good food and fairly low prices. We had a spinach salad, fish tacos, and nachos. Good food all around
