Friendly atmosphere with Latin music at a volume that allows you to chat with people around the table. The food was very good. Glad we stopped in! Would dine here again.

Visited with friends. Good friendly service, nice choice of toppings for tacos - recommend the "al pastor" (pork) and the "camerones" (shrimp). Fast, simple, fresh food, reasonably priced. Also the pineapple juice is actually a pineapple smoothie and is delicious!! Would visit again.

They have the best tacos al pastor, I always visit this restaurant when in Guatemala City. The chicharron de queso with chorizo and pineapple is also delicious.

Went here with a large group. Most of my companions enjoyed the food. I, however, ordered 2 chicken tacos, which were just ok. The salsa condiments served were good. Service was adequate. The place is really loud, making it impossible to converse.

We stopped here because we were in the mood for the type of Latin food mainstream in California: tacos, enchiladas, and that sort of thing. The tables on the sidewalk were appealing to us in the early evening, and the area seemed upbeat. Our server...More

Fun place for good food -- and to hang out with friends. Fun ambiance -- not fancy, but nice. Food was great, and prices are very reasonable
