“Not so bad...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

This was my first visit to a bar on my vacation in Los Angeles from Toronto Canada. Just arrived in Hollywood and was still jet lagged. Wanted something covenient. Found this place not far my hotel on Highland ave. It was pretty busy for a Tuesday night. Was greeted well by a hot brunette server. It was happy hour. Got 2 for 1 beer. Had the surf & turf tacos for $10. The place was lively. TV's all around. All pro sports were on TV. Didn't have to ask to put a game on. They even had Hockey NHL on! Yes sticky floors and tables. It's a bar. It's a Mexican American sports bar. Don't expect 5 star chic New York lounge and you'll be fine.

“Best Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is literary the best Mexican food in Los Angeles. I go there every week, several times I went with my Mexican friends. They said it is the best. The prices are low, the portions are big, Margaritas are huge and tasty. The service is good. You won't find cheaper and tastier food in the town.

“No Frills”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Certainly no fills here, but a good burger and huge portions for a quick cheap eat, we arrived at about 1am and wanted something small, so this was really good for something quick to eat and drink, but were suprised by the size of the portions.

“Great Tacos, great service, huge margaritas!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We went there yesterday and had a great lunch. The service was awesome our waitress was very friendly. The margaritas are huge and big enough for 4 people to share them. The tacos are awesome and the burritos are huge. It's very reasonably priced. We had a great time hanging out there drinking all afternoon. We will definitely be back.

“ok but a bit overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Food was just ok. Atmoshpere is fine and it's nice to have an outside seating area. Go for happy hour at least drinks are 2 for 1. Would be nice if the offer complimentary chips and salsa.
