Wow, crazy busy local place. Walking distance from 5th avenue. Well worth it. We tried a bit of everything but the beef, beef ribs, and pork charcoal were the best. Not to mention the horchata which I couldn’t stop drinking. Food is good and prices extremely reasonable!

Love this place. Easy, tasty, homemade and delicious. Great margaritas! Usually packed with locals. Good for left overs!

Tacos were good! Great place to have lunch if you are around. Mostly tourists like the review below wrote. Nothing wrong about that I guess, perhaps just a bit hyped up. There were many other Mexicans restaurants along the street.

Queue out of the door when we got there and when we got in, we could see why! Pastor & chorizo tacos both amazing! worth the trip.

Fabulous food in low key surroundings. A couple of steps up from street food. Real energy and lots of locals eating there. So happy we were recommended to go here. The platter for four was fabulous as were the tacos. Our dinner for four with cocktails and beer was about 1000 pesos - so excellent value
