Alejo's looks like nothing from the outside. It is a total hole in the wall. Even when you walk inside it's not impressive. But once you sit down and they bring you bread and garlic oil it starts to get better. Hopefully you got the tip that you can bring in your own wine and there is no corkage fee. They have the most amazing chopped salad I have ever tasted and all of the pastas and meat dishes are wonderful. It's like you went to your friend's house for dinner and his grandmother prepared a feast!
