Excellent chicken tortilla soup with pollo asada and big chunks of avocado. They also make homemade tortillas for $1! Cheap kids' meals and great atmosphere - very authentic feeling. Reasonable prices too!

We had beef and carnita dishes and we found the meat a bit tasteless with not much seasoning. The side of rice was good but the beans tasted like a cast iron skillet.
