“Wonderful Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

Very good Mexican food, resonable prices. Enjoyed their breakfasts of Mexican eggs and tortillas. Soups at lunch such as Lime Soup are wonderful. The locals eat here also, a good sign.

“Quick, attentive service and good local food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

We've eaten here a few times (we live here). Last week I ordered chilaquilles, which came with a side of beans and rice. A generous plate I couldn't finish, and very tasty. My partner ordered huevos rancheros and he said they were very good as well.

I've also had enchiladas and a few other dishes - always served quickly and always hot.

Very reasonable prices, great family-run loncheria.

“Ham & cheese with Disney type plastic tablecloths”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2011

I picked this place as it was the only place without any customers of the four loncherias at the market. Senora Carmen and Dona Perfecta are lovely ladies!

I had a coffee and a ham & cheese sandwich with mayo, tomato and red onion for 32 pesos. It was very amusing to sit amongst the red plastic table and chairs with the Disney type plastic tablecloths with Sleeping Beauty etc.

While my breakfast was nothing that I couldn't make myself at home, the atmosphere was worth everything!

I'd go again! :-)

At the Public market. Inexpensive good food. They even ran to the market for a poblano chili when I wanted chili relleno.
