So glad we stopped at this place while walking around the area. The food was amazing, so fresh and flavorful! Tried their Margarita which did not have any tequila in it (some sort of wine), and it was very good, interesting combination! If you love...More

This place has slowly deteriorated over the years. I had some food yesterday that had the 'tostada' portion thrown separately as tortilla (small) shells into a the brown takeout bag - no cover, no nothing. The soft taco looked like it was wrapped in a...More

It's not gourmet food, but the fish tacos are excellent and inexpensive. The shrimp dishes are also good. Nice predictable good Mexican food.

Mexican dishes. Plain but good fare. Carne asade (grilled steak, chopped) was good and comes with choice of flour or corn tortillas, rice and beans. Others tried enchiladas, tacos, etc... Enjoyable.

Came here for takeout for family dinner. I am a huge fan of their #2, a cheese enchilada, rice and beans. Spouse loves the carne asada burritos. Food was hot and ready when we arrived. Delicious chips and salsa. Service with a smile. Reasonable prices....More

I go here on ocassion. The food is okay, and is popular with workers and locals. Very casual, close seating. Nothing special.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
