We ordered both dishes, the chicken was the best, it came with plenty of baby garlic potatoes and guacamole and tortillas and hibiscus tea, very yummy. the cost of a meal here s 30Q about $6 NZ. There may be... More

Had my first ever meal in Guatemala here. this was recommended by one of the staff at three monkeys and im glad i went here. Their chicken plate is so tasty with a side of salad, fresh tortillas and horchata. Very cheap at 35q's and the place is just filled with locals. This is probably one of the hidden gems... More

We spent 4 weeks in Antigua and ate our main meal here at least half of the time. The specialty is wood roasted chicken which is served with wonderful little, creamy roasted potatoes and either a cabbage salad or guacamole (I guess depending on what's in the market?). The meal includes hand made tortillas! There are also specials and I... More

The four stars is just for the great value ... because of the fact you can get a full meal for Q$25. We found the chicken to be a bit dry -- worthy of only three stars. But, the great value won.

Wonderful local restaurant. Very simple menu and you will love the price. People were friendly and the food was just great. We planned to return but ran out of time.

Good food but NOT if you are vegan or vegetarian. They still charge you the flat price of 30Q despite the fact that your dish won't come with any meat. The plate I got had rice and 2 types of salad, both of which were smothered in mayo (I'm not vegan but if you are, you better ask), and some... More

This was cheap, delicious, simple.roasted chicken, pots and mashed avocado. The tortillas were thick and delicious, made by hand at the front door. Definitely a local experience!

This place is a must for a cheap, fast and amazing tipico lunch. At 30q the price can not be beat and it is hard to pass by without being steered inside by the fresh tortillas on the grill. The menu is limited but have the standards and what they do they do right.

Very good local food,they had 4 different meals of which we tried two and they were both very good. Getting free tortillas and tamarind juice with the meal for such a price just makes you come back.

I came here right before closing. They were almost empty but served me promptly. Just as others describe, they only offer two or three set plates: usually a different kind of meat with rice, beans, and either potatoes or salad, and a beer for a set price of 45Q. The food was great, fast, and a great value given the... More
