Reviewed May 14, 2012

The food is freshly made and you can watch the tortillas being made in the heart of the restaurant. I love the cheese soup and my friend almost always has the special of the day. The local strolling guitars know this is a good place to hang out - hope you're lucky to be there when they are. We keep going back again and again and we take visitors to get the flavor of South Tucson.

Bought a groupon and decided to try it out. Service was good and ordered off the menu. Didn't know there was a buffet for lunch that most regulars were eating. Ordered machaca plate which was made with dried seasoned beef. I personally found it to dry. The chips and salsa came first and was too spicy for my wife and a little to peppery for my taste. The restauant itself has interesting decor and was warm and friendly. I think that if I had a Mexican background I would have enjoyed what people around were eating - real traditional food.
