We both had a great meal, and a special mention for the Brisket Torta , the service was perfect. This restaurant is close to the Barrymore Theater which was our ultimate destination, we will be back.

Very nice ambiance and food. The service was correct and fast, and the food was served on big plates, we ordered 2 plates only for the 3 of us. Not very expensive 45$ / 3 people.

Best tacos and tortas in the area. Service was very good. Would go back there in a heartbeat. Their fresh made margaritas add the finishing touch to a splendid meal.
