Delicious lunch for two for under $20, yes, it is possible. This food was well prepared and well served and yes, quite reasonable too. The patio would be quite lovely when it's not so blasted hot.

Love their breakfast tacos, especially carne guisada! Also, all the enchiladas and tortilla soup are delicious! Small, quaint place with little parking, so best to go off times when not so busy. The owner and wait staff really try to please!

Someone said yes, but I say no! They taste like the bagged ones you buy at the grocery store! Nothing remarkable!
