This place is like a second home to me. I always order the same dish...grilled chicken burrito. Each and every time I've had it, it is always the same - Delicious!

No-frills Mexican restaurant with great, cheap margaritas. You order at the counter, grab your drinks from the bar and pots of salsa from the sideboard. Portions are enormous and tasty and around the $10 mark. Service is a bit haphazard and you have to "bus" your own table (ie: clear your own plates) but it's super-relaxed and great for a... More

I had the Burrito De Lucy and it was delicious! They were friendly and accomodating and the service was quick! The Price wasn't too bad either

We ate here after a long day out and this really hit the spot :) Food was good with a lot of vegetarian options (beans and rice are all vegetarian) and they have tofu too! The waitress even let me know that although those are all vegetarian- the sour cream is made with gelatin. Super helpful. Portion sizes are big... More

We split the poke tostada and the al pastor tacos. Both were fantastic. My margarita was excellent as well. The food is very reasonably priced. Like the others state, bus your own table. I would go once a week if I lived here.

Very inexpensive restaurant with great food and service and nice atmosphere . The place is always very busy. They can keep their prices reasonable as the restaurant is basically self- serve (e.g. you order at the counter, bus your own table). They also have a play station for kids, though the service was pretty quick. They are closed on Tuesdays.

If you're 21 - head right to the bar & grab menus on the way in. We got the tacos (3 small ones) and taquitos (3 nice-sized) and 2 fresh made (not that fake sour mix) margaritas for $21. We live in NYC and visit LA often for work and these were some of the best tacos we've ever had.... More

You order at the counter. Menu is extensive. I had the enchiladas de Lucy. They were easily enough food for two, especially with a side of guacamole. House-made chips were really good. I wasn't wild about their salsas but combined diced onions and cilantro with the medium, green salsa and it was great.
