This is a family favorite , it may not be like the everyday American Mexican restaurant but even the uninitiated will find food they love!

I don't know enough to tell if the food here is "authentic," but it is certainly delicious! My husband had the chori-pollo and he loved it - two pieces of chicken and a ton of grilled sausage. I had sopas, one with steak and one...More

The food here is so good - you can tell you aren't getting anything like you would in a chain Mexican restaurant. I always get this great beef tongue sandwich there (torta de lengua, I believe) that you can't get most places. It is piled...More

We were looking for a quick bite close to the Virginia Living museum. Found this place and had delicious tacos, guacamole and my husband ordered steak tampiqueno. Not much atmosphere but seemed to do a busy carry-out business.

Just superb Mexican food, as good as any I've had in San Diego, Texas, or New Mexico. Just superb food from this chef. Very inexpensive, cheaper than the chains, food twice as good. Ecellent casual.

We love Mexican food. My husband heard about this place and we decided to try it. Bad idea. The young server was working hard. Hustling. She was smiling and you could tell she was connected to her customers. The older lady maybe in her 40's...More
