Teotihuacan is another Hole-in-the-wall restaurant that has great food (tex-Mex), but you wouldn't know it just passing by without hearing it from a patron. They serve great Mexican breakfasts with the best tamales in town (tamales only served with breakfast)... Enchiladas Verdes (chicken) are my favorite. There's a reason this joint is always packed.

...you really can't go wrong here. It's authentic Mexican food complimented by some dangerously good margaritas. Extremely cost effective way to enjoy a night out with friends.

What a gem of a place! Had lunch with a friend. Hadn't ever eaten there before - I now regret that! Nothing bad on the menu unless you don't like Mexican food... Prices are great! Fast, friendly service. What else is there to say?

You get unlimited free fresh tortilla chips with salsa to start. My cousin and I ordered Parillada "la chaparra" platter for US $28.99 - 4 different types of meat: shrimp, beef, chicken and sausage. The menu stated it was a meal for two however its more like a platter for four. Could not finish it but the food was great. If you are a meat lover this definitely something you want to try.

Would have given "five" stars, but they lost our order.

Took over 30 minutes to bring out our food and that is after we said something to the server. People coming in after us were getting served and we were still waiting.

Beef and chicken fajitas -- YUMMY!!

Onions very sweet and tender and rice was delicious too!

Will definitely return as prices were very reasonable for everything that you got!
