We are locals and this is the local spot. The tortas are our fave thing here and order the "ranchero nachos (just cheese and sauce)".
I agree with most of the reviews, it's a great people watching spot however, tourists may find this place lacking. If you're looking for a cheezy tourist experience keep looking. We found the service to be hit and miss at this place. The drinks are delicious. This place is far from gourmet and far from yucky taco bell..it is be no means authentic either...it's just good inexpensive food.
