"The guacamole was amazing super creamy. The chips were freshly warmed super good. I went to eat there with my family for my brother's 16th birthday and we had the fiesta platter and it came with so many different meat. Everything was so tasty. The cecina tacos were so good and the staff were also very attentive and nice! I love it so much I came back for my girlfriend's birthday the same week."

"Went here for work lunch and it was even better than I had heard. I had the carnitas and my coworker had the enchiladas. They were both delicious. I asked our server if I could get some red sauce with my dish and they brought us chips and three different sauces. All tasted house-made and have great flavors. The experience was wonderful and the staff was very friendly and attentive. They offered both inside and patio dining. I would definitely recommend giving them a try."

"I thought the food from here was amazing and fresh. The ambience is really authentic, mysterious and charming and they had a DJ playing music outside. I think it would be a great place to go out with friends or on a date. I ordered the verduras bowl with grilled veggies, beans, rice and mole. The food was seasoned so well, you won't even miss the meat. I think they recently reopened after Covid, check it out and keep this great restaurant going."
