It does seem like a bit of a stretch to expect to find good Mexican food in Catonsville, so our expectations were low. But overall, the dining experience was OK. Typical neighborhood bar/restaurant decor. The service was fine and the prices were reasonable. Our group...More

Food was nothing special and pretty bland. Salsa is, weird, tasteless, bland. Same with the other sauces that come with the tacos. The good thing is if you are on a diet, the street tacos are a good choice, not greasy and not huge portions....More

While the portions were fairly large, there wasn't anything interesting on the plate. I had the Al Pastor Platter, recommended by the server. The pork was ok, but a little on the dry side. There were tiny bits of pineapple. The rice and the pinto...More
