This place is great! Another item on their menu Ive discovered is fantastic. Again I had my Lengua Tacos- delicious! A hot tea, cuz its cold outside.

I went with a friend of mine, (some might remeber her for "No fried chicken!") She had chicken wings and a Lime Margarita. I had Guacamole w/chips, Lengua Tacos and a Horchata. It was awsome!! The tacos taste so fresh, and the dip tasted like I went back there and made it myself. My drink was yummy with a dash... More

Great authentic mexican restaurant near the hotel. Prices were right and the portions were huge. We went during the happy hour and got some good Mexican beers along with the meals. One plate should be enough for two but we ordered two entrees. They were both delicious.

Stopped by the bar/restaurant next to my hotel. Sat at bar and ordered a beer and fish tacos. Great service by the bartender. The atmosphere was awesome. A soccer game on and the food was very good. Beer was very cold and love the lime slice on the bottle. Great staff and was a fun place for a tired traveler.

I've eaten in this restaurant on numerous occasions, and I've never been disappointed. The food always comes out hot, and service is what I expect, but I can't really say that it has ever exceeded my expectations. The portions are fairly large, and my favorite drink is the horchata, which is rice juice. This restaurant has live entertainment in the... More
