Fantastic food. We got the lamb shank and the spinach quesadilla. Both were 5-stars. Fast, polite service too. The building is a casual little unassuming hole-in-the-wall space. Large menu with dinner and lunch options, apps, sides, and beverages including alcohol. Our waitress helpfully recommended the...lamb shank.More

Food was good as usual. But the waitress was very rude, when I would call her she ignored us. When another customer tried to tell her I needed her attention, she said she knew and kept walking. When I told the manager, she apologized, but...made no reparation. I was very disappointed. The restaurant was not crowded, nor did we demand a lot from her. She was just rude. This used to be one of my favorite places, but I wont be back!More

As a starter I had the cream of shrimp soup - great choice - I can also recommend the lamb chops - all 3 in our party had the lamb chops mine rear my cousins med and medium well - done to perfection. Wine selection...is limited but pricing was incredibly reasonable.More

I ordered the seafood paella on 5/14/20. When I got to my hotel I noticed there was only a handful of shrimp, small clams, muscles, small scallops and tiny pieces of squid. No chorizo as was advertised. This dish cost $28 and the average meal...costs about $14. What a ripoff!!More

Loved this mom and pop Mexican spot. Food was an abundance and super tasty. Support local not chains and get your burritos, taco, chimi, etc from here.

The food is excellent and the service is too. The Mexican combos are very good. Their tortilla soup is worth getting.

I REALLY liked this place. I had told my cousins that I wanted to have some good Mexican food while visiting the States and they brought me here. It doesn’t look like much from the outside and the interior is pretty basic as well, but...the food everyone ordered was delicious. I had guacamole and cheese enchiladas which were both tasty and filling, with a side salad. My lunch partners ordered a burrito (huge!) and some meat dish and everyone seemed more than satisfied with the quality and the portion size. The menu is comprehensive and has just about every type of Mexican food that I’ve ever heard of. We didn’t order drinks, so I can’t comment on their beverage selection. However I did notice that they have a happy hour Tuesday through Friday from 3 to 7 pm The service was friendly and fast. There’s a convenient parking lot. Prices were very reasonable. If you’re not looking for something fancy or romantic, I can’t think of a better place to go for authentic Mexican food.More

This is my go-to place for dinner with a friend. Interesting menu, good service, delicious food, decent prices, and they let us sit and talk as long as we like.

The Grouper with mix veggies and rice (you get two sides) a amazing and enough food for two. If I order to go, I usually get the mussels (with sausage) and put it over linguini or rice at home. The sauce that the mussels is...in is yummy. I put a little red pepper flack in it to give it some heat. The Ceviche is a great starter too. I have been dining here for over 10 years and truly enjoy Chef Luna's food.More

Chef Luna and his family make you at home with scratch dishes in a tiny space that decades ago was a Carvel ice cream stand. Now the bright place features creamy specialty guacs, fresh tiapila, paella, homemade salsas, and the best deal around - giant...burritos (the grilled shrimp or steak are our favorites) with guacamole, salad and salsas for just $14. Place is small, so get there early or pick up and enjoy at home.More

Just had a meal Here and I asked for medium rare steak and got a we’ll done steak. No service in about 20 minutes so I took a few bites rice and when I mentioned that the steak was over cooked, they say nothing can...be done as I already ate a portion of the rice so it doesn’t count. Consider nobody was in site for over 20 something minutes. How I wish I took a photo of the steak before they whisked the steak awayMore

From the outside, it's not very impressive and inside is small with about 20 tables. The patrons that were there were "regulars" and knew the staff - very friendly environment with delicious food.
