This is a small restaurant with real Mexican fare. From jalapeno cheese tamales to ceviche tostadas....from machaca to albondigas. I had taquitos which were a really good size and filled with shredded beef and chicken. The burritos were huge and prices were generally around $7-13....More

Yummy and quick Margarita and two cheese enchiladas on the side for $16 with delicious homemade salsa. Out of the way from typical touristy spots, for locals and those who like a hole-in-the wall Mex place with sports on TVs to watch.

We just noticed this place and decided to give it a try. The atmosphere is okay but the food was excellent. The burrito was giant and I should have split it with my wife. We both agreed it was excellent and will return.
