We went for dinner, the soup of the area "sopa the pan" was excellent the rest less than good. And note that they take cash only no credit card

A great traditional Mexican restaurant. The decor and atmosphere give the feel of an authentic Mexican village. In one corner is a lady making fresh tortillas. In the other are the marimba players. Come on a Friday night and be treated to a Mexican dancing show. The food is excellent. The service is a little less so.

If you’re looking for great mexican and typical food, this is the place. The service is wonderful and you can eat while hearing the marimba.

Very good food, the enchiladas de mole are stupendous. My son had the corn soup which was a definite must. I highly recommend. Bring cash and a little patience, food takes time
