“THE REAL DEAL... CANTINA FOOD, MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

I grew up in Mexico City going to traditional cantinas and while many upscale restaurants have tried to mimic the experience, honestly it wasn't the same... until now. This is the first true Cantina look and feel with superb food and real ambience in a premium location. Try the gorditas de chicharron, camarones agua chile, chile morita relleno, tacos de chamorro, frijoles con veneno, panuchos,... and I could go on and on. Traditional flavors but somehow better. Now the ambience is truly unique and at night you have everything to continue the party... Trio Music that you can hire by the song, a lot of people at the bar and, of course... "El Toques"... don't wonder what it is, just ask for him and try it!
