Delicious, cheap, appropriately surly service -- that is what you want in a little cafe like this. I feel guilty for not coming here sooner. I had the chilis relleno that were excellent - pungent chilis, good cheese, hot sauce. I will be coming back...More

I was in the neighborhood on an errand and went here for lunch. I was impressed with the authentic Mexican food. I got a combination plate and the tacos, & sopes were very tasty. I will definitely return!

I had the pork tamales combo, which was $5.99. It is hard to find a meal this good for this price. The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but the folks who took and handed me my order were very kind. They offered extra...More

They are at their third location since I moved to KC 13 years ago (not counting their sit-down restaurant) and this is the best combo platter you will ever have. I don't know what or how, but everything on the menu is fresh, flavorful and...More
