This is a no frills super authentic Mexican place on Broad Street in Hartford. The neighborhood is not the best but the food makes it well worth it. They have very limited vegetarian options so if you aren't a meat eater you might be disappointed...More

Even ordering it, you might want to speak Spanish. It is very small and not fancy at all but food is great. The area is not great, so you want to go in daytime.

Hi sramanan- This is Denih55- you may need to call them. There are typical non-meat dishes served there, but I'm not sure if they are vegetarian or vegan approved. All I can say is when you go, you are in for a treat. Enjoy!
