The whole family enjoyed eating here, even my son that has sensory issues enjoyed it. The tostada was so delicious and the hot sauce was spicy but not burning. If Authentic Mexican food is what you are looking for, this is the place!

This locally family owned is undoubtedly the favorite of us locals and visitors. A good indication is the fact it usually hard to find parking. It is worth any wait. To be able to order a smaller sized breakfast taco is a real plus. Delicious.

A gppd friend of mine reccommended this place and I am definitely glad we stopped by. It is a very small and quaint family owned business. The food was fresh and home made. I was reminded of my mom's and aunt's home made flour tortillas.
