My boyfriend and I went here last night on a friend's recommendation! We were glad we are here. We ordered the sampler, the quesadilla and the poppers were delicious! We ordered a casaer salad, that was just ok, nothing special. I ordered ground beef tacos and those were so tasty. He ordered the shrimp street tacos, which he enjoyed. The... More

This place has been on my bucket list for some time now. After shopping on Rodeo Drive we headed here for dinner on a Sunday night. Parking is tough to find in this area but they offer valet parking for $3.50, it's better than pulling your hair out looking for a free parking spot. We drove up to the valet... More

I've been visiting for decades. The margaritas are really good and the menu is interesting. I like their original tostada which packed with veggies. Imagine beets and peas in a tostada with thousand island dressing, and it tastes great. The waitresses dress in traditional Mexican garb, and the place is very colorful and has lots of booths and outdoor seating.... More

This place is a must if you are in Los Angeles. We have been coming here for 40 years. It's about time I wrote a review of it. We were there for lunch today, and as usual it was very busy. I ordered the Albondigas soup to start out and The Carnitas Plate as my main course. We waited and... More

The old school decor makes it feel as authentic as it is. The fajita's were plentiful and delicious! Our waitress was efficient and friendly. And we had a fun time drinking the margarita's!

Being from Texas we were craving Mexican food .... a friend recommended this place & hands down I approve. Another great recommendation was Don Cucos. We didn't have a chance to try it but if it's in your area it was highly recommended as well.

Wonderful service and great good. What else can you ask for. Large, no huge portions. We had chicken burrito s, great. Enough for 2-3 people.

Incredible authentic atmosphere with plenty of seating space. Staff is very friendly and attentive. The menu has a great variety of Mexican food. When it came to the actual food, it was poorly presented, greasy and cheap-looking and tasted basic. Could improve on that to make it 5 star!
