We recently visited East LA for cocktails and appetizers. This is a very nice spot. We were able to sit outside and enjoy some wonderfully flavorful, ample margaritas. This spot makes them well. We also were able to enjoy their wonderful quacalome with chips. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent here.

Good quality at affordable prices. Small bar area with smallish dining area and decent Mexican food. What's not to like?

Dirty, noisy with poor food. We dined late Sunday night. Surprised to be placed next to groups with very young kids. The kids were OK but parents seemed to be involved in a kind of shouting contest for who could be loudest. Felt very uncomfortable. Bathroom was disgusting. I had chicken fajitas which featured cremated meat on top of greasy... More

OMGGGGGG THIS FOOD IS SO AMAZING. I always hear about this place, but never been. The food portions are so big. The prices are very very reasonable and the drink and mm mm delicious....... The only issue is the parking, very hard but once you find it East LA is well worth it
