The tacos dorados plate was terrible! Hardly any picadillo and chicken and had no sides! Not a happy camper besides waiting over an hour for our food.

A mexican restaurant with autentic mexican food, the special is the mole sauce witch is made like in the past, an artesian mole that takes over a week to prepare, unique texture and a chocolate taste at the end. A very house warming atmosphere, and always a good service taken by the owners themself.
