We were there for Sunday Brunch, most items were for breakfast but they did have a taco selection. We had the pork tacos and the guacamole. Everything was very good. Better than most Mexican restaurants. I would go back if in the area.

La Calaca is our go-to place for Mexican food. We thought we wouldn’t find any decent Mexican when we moved here from California but La Calaca surprised us. Brunch is a must, the Huevos Benedicto are awesome!

I wouldn't classify the cuisine as what you would find in Mexico since it caters to US tastes, but it has very tasty options. The chips are amazing, definitely not enough of them in one serving for two people! The dishes are decent-sized and there...More
