Love this place. Nice owners, always with a smile. It is close to home and is becoming a go-to for me. The food has really improved over the past year and I'm going there more frequently as a result. Outdoor seating is nice, although the street can sometimes be a little busy.

I love this little authentic family-friendly Mexican restaurant. The hostess-owner (I think) is charming. This is casual dining that even has games for the kids. My only complaint is the restaurant hours/days which I still haven't been able to figure out.

The food here is authentic, delicious, and abundant. Service is personal, warm, and friendly. Very family-friendly and yet not noisy. I've been back several times since my first visit and always with a good experience. Note they aren't open on Sundays.

My friend and I were struck in traffic and I saw this little Mexican place that I've never tried before, so we decided to stop and give it a try. We both had a chicken burrito and thought it was very tasty. The waitress was very sweet and she had a great personality. The inside was decorated very nice and very authentic. I really enjoyed sitting out front in the little patio area. I'm looking forward to returning soon and trying something new on the menu. Enjoy!

Weary from my long travels, I was delighted to see this place. I was also pleased to see menudo on the menu and for roughly $7 a bowl. I ordered this and a glass of horchata. When the bowl arrived it was neither small nor big but much smaller than I am accustomed to in a restaurant. The worst was that the bowl was consumed by a large pata with only a small portion of tiny pieces of tripe. I tried to eat the mostly inedible pata only because I was so hungry but did not have much success.

When I went up to pay the cashier, I was told my total was over $15 (I expected it to be around $10). I let the waitress/cashier know that the menu showed the menudo was only around $7. She told me that it costed more than the other soups because it takes longer to make it (despite what was printed in the menu). Unfortunately, I left disappointed and still hungry.
