Food is very good for an excellent price. Count about $4 to $5 a dish, and about $4 for a margarita. Service is fast and good. The restaurant was redone in the last year and is larger and very colorful.

The best part of this evening was the service, the staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was fair at best. The food arrived lukewarm, the tacos were SO dry and tasteless. This is my second visit and will be my last

We tried the new location for this restaurant on Presidente Cordova. The food ranged from average to dry and not very good. The service was average. Restrooms were dirty and lacked supplies. Atmosphere is nothing special. Would not return.

Our family and friends love the food here. Lot's of things to choose from and very consistent quality. I always enjoy the Suiza Chicken Burrito. We generally go a couple of times a month at least.

I am not sure which is closer--may be about the same distance. The original is at Calle Huacus Y Ave. de las Americas. But they are closed today and a bit difficult to find if you are new here. The other is at Milenium... More
