“Great empanadas, tortillas and breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This place still makes their own empanadas and tortillas. Great breakfast burritos, chorizo is nice and spicy, beans are delicious. The place is small and packed on saturdays for breakfast, not open on Sunday. My favorite is their pineapple empanada. You always get chips and salsa with your breakfast, warning salsa is addicting. Just an FYI, they do close early.

“Holy Cow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

Fantastic Mexican food. I love this place. Service is very friendly and the food is as good as can be found. The shrimp burrito is fantastic. The sauces and tortillas are the best. GET THERE!

“Say It With Me... Chilaquiles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

Wow, we rolled up for breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised. My wife ordered a breakfast style burro with their green chile, and I asked if they had chilaquiles... WHICH THEY DID!

Yeah, its not on their menu, but the chef will whip an order up for you. Their enchilada sauce perfectly complemented this dish. Their chips and salsa were tasty, and my wife's burro was delectable. Really, it was delectable. I'm not just repetitiously writing the word delectable for the hell of it.

I'll be bringing the familia back to check them out for lunch, or maybe dinner fare. And if Shakira happens to be in the neighborhood, she can come too.
