Is my first time here and for sure I won't come back again! Very poor brunch, no flavour at all....everything needs more salt, bad quality of meat! The pozole and the menudo very watering; nothing to recommend! Only the service was good!

We enjoyed this place. Very few people were working so it took awhile for service, but the waiter was pleasant and helpful. The place was clean and nicely decorated. The chicken tostada was large and very tasty. We would stop here again.
