This place is off the beaten path just a bit. About 1/2 mile or so south on Montezuma from historic Whiskey Row but well worth the short drive. This is a small "hole in the wall" place owned and run by Rosa; her husband is the cook. They have the best pork carnitas of any place around. And, this place is "cabaret style"; that is bring your own beer, wine, booze, etc; no charge; and they give you a glass and opener. If you need a mixer you pay for that. Chips are free; the place is a bit funky and small but it is awesome. The art on the walls is NOT for sale and has, for the most part, been donated by local artists; who knows what it is worth and who cares? This is a "flash back" place. SUGGESTION-- Tip well so they can stay in business; they don't charge enough. Oh,,, one last thing. The #2 or 3 rated hotel in the USA, the Motor Lodge, is right across the street. Stay here; eat here. You kidding me? This is great! Notice: If you want to eat in a chain restaurant, go! If what you want is a piece of Americana, go here! You will not regret it.
