Went in with a party of 8. We were received by a waiter who was just impolite and grumpy. He decided to give us a table for 4 when clearly we were 8. After telling a female waiter (we wanted to change service and table) we were going to move he then promptly moved us (he would lose the tip if another waiter would serve us). After finally ordering the food (long waiting time and the waiter forgetting the orders) when it arrived the quality and taste was just bad. Most of us just decided to leave more than half our plates. Not only our waiter was rude even the other female waiter since she had to eventually help him take our orders. To make things worse the bill came in and surprisingly it was really expensive for the type of food and service. Overall our night was ruined. Thankfully we decided to go into another rest. (you find several amazing restaurants around so don't choose this one). Bottom line is there are a lot of good restaurants with amazing food, service and even prices. If you have been to Mexico and have experience their food this restaurant is just and insult to that amazing cuisine.

RESUMEN EN ESPANOL = NO IR ! El servicio es malo , la comida mejor dejarla y lo peor es que sale caro.

Average Mexican food.
No effort made to speak or communicate with English speaking guests.
The place was somewhat empty, I understand why.

Not where gringos should come if they're looking for an authentic Tex-Mex fix. However: It's hard to go wrong with a pile of pastor, bacon and cheese, liberally doused in hot sauce and washed down with cold beer. Service was attentive on our visit and chatty with the kids, bringing the crayons, fruit drinks with lids and straws, etc. Looked to be popular with local margarita-hunting ladies. We wanted a somewhat lively place where we could take the kids and still have a beer and decent meal, without taking them to a bar or upscale restaurant, and we got it. Very laid back.

Not recommended. Even though in the menu they list different types of tacos, they are all the same. Food is ok. Service awful.
