I had a business lunch here. The place is obviously well known as most of the tables were taken but luckily we got a table even though it was just before noon. My business partner told me I wouldn't be disappointed with the food, and he was right, my pork carnitas plate did taste good. And unlike other chain type restaurants, it didn't "stay" with me all day. If in the area, this is a good place to try.

Little place with tight parking ( more parking nearby), but the good Mexican food is here. Nice combos and cute, quaint surroundings.
