Glad we saved room for the fabulous Flan! When a meal is terrific, it's not uncommon to say, "Wow! Have a taste of this..."! Never imagined simple tacos, enchiladas, rice, beans & calabacitas (squash w/ corn & onions) could be so tasty. As great as...More

They have limited hours, but nice ambiance. We ended up having a drink in the lobby. The lobby has fine art on display and friendly informative clerks.
