The food here is authentic Mexican good food. The service can be spotty if they are really busy. The neighborhood is very close to downtown, but the area is sketchy. I rated four-stars because the food is SO GOOD!

This place is nothing to look at from outside but the food is truly good and incredible value for money. I usually go for a wet burrito. They also have Mexican Coke.
