Absolutely delish! Been looking for a Mexican restaurant in Nopo, that was well above basic burritos but didn't get all infused with "North West Cuisine" crap. This place is perfect, great empanadas and flautus! And a very fair price!!! Top marks!

Went in for happy hour. Food was very good. We had enchiladas and empanadas. Both were tasty. Drinks were good. Everything had a nice presentation. Our server was friendly and polite. The staff works as a team.

Everything was super flavorful. My husband and I had the cauliflower as an appetizer. The fajitas and tamales for our entrees. Lots of sauces and they were all really good.

I ordered HONGOS Y ESPINACAS QUESADILLA. I was very pleased with my meal. It was a spinach tortilla filled with gooey cheese, yum. Be adventurous. My husband got chicken tacos -- boring.
