“Great find!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

Very nice. We were walking around and noticed the place. Stopped and talked to Oscar, Paula, Miguel. Decided to eat there. First night we had soft tacos. Very good. Absolutely no complaints. Went back a couple of days later and had molcajete machete on the recommendation of Paula. Excellent choice. Very friendly, very convenient, and very good food. The beer is cold too. Highly recommend you eat here. We have to leave in a few days but plan to eat here one more time before we go. We will be back in October and will definitely eat here again.

“Great food, wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

We discovered this gem of a restaurant coming back from another restaurant and decided to give them a try. WOW. We sat down at lovely outside table and were immediately served by Miguel. Since the menu was in Spanish we had to ask for assistance in ordering. After asking for Miguel's recommendation - molcajete machete - we decided to try it. It came out in a Mexican pot and was filled with chorizo sausage, steak, chicken, shrimp, cheese, onion and cactus. It was heaven. Just enough for two light eaters to try something new and well worth the experiment. We will definitely be back.

“Good food, fast service, low prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Who could ask for anything more? Was nearby on a Friday night listening to mariachis play there - they were very good. Went back to eat there the following night. Good margaritas - had choirqueso and nopales. Choriqueso was very good. Nopales were grilled with tomato, onion, and cilantro and served with 3 salsas - habanero, jalapeno, and chilpotle. The habanero was so hot I had to buy a bottle of water on my way back to the house. Will go again.

“Check out the Molcajete”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Stopped by for some food and really enjoyed the Molcajete. It is served piping hot with some great food in it. A real Mexican treat. I gave it a 4 because I left hungry. But overall good food and great service near the square.
