We had gone here the year prior, and were so happy with this little place, sought it out again. Their carne asada is delicious, enchiladas great, presentations lovely. Ozzie, our waiter, recommended a special dessert made with ice cream, and it was wonderful! It was so pretty, I took a picture - can't remember doing that before.
Maybe the fact they're a block or two away from the really busy streets accounts for their amazingly low prices, but they are well worth the few extra steps.

Advertised in AAA tour book and in the heart of Cannery Row area. What did we expect for a last minute stop? The food was pretty good for the most part but we are spoiled with authentic Mexican food being from SoCal.
Red salsa was not hot or flavorful. Salsa verde much better. The Camarones, or shrimp was buttery and garlicy and very good and came with a very thin strip of carna asada for $16.
Our six diners were overall satisfied but not impressed.
