Ordered various plates and snacks. Had very good mole con pollo, carne de res, and vegetarian dishes. The fact that you order at a window and pick up when called actually makes for better service compared to the norm in San Juan. So thumbs up!

This place is in the metro area. The music makes you drink tequila all night. Food is good and the service was great. They offered a variety of delicious food in good prices. My family really enjoyed it.

Nice place. Good food. They need to change the cheese. Taste lake regular slice cheese. A dinner so delicious need a better cheese. I order the Carnitas Burrito Gratinado. Excellent, with a better cheese.

I love the arriero dish: Beef, chicken, and carne al pastor, your choice of 4 salsas (mild to extremely hot!!!) with the shredded lettuce, and the chopped onions with cilantrillo... It is comfort food for my "mexican" taste buds!!

When you are looking for a relaxed setting and great Mexican food this is the place to be. Margaritas are allays goods and beers is cold. Las night I had the Chilaquiles with Carne asada and it was a good as the one I had in Mexico few years back.

This place reminds me of taquerias visited at San Antonio Texas. Has the same stile of a pure Mexican place. Good tacos and burritos. El pastor and no pales tacos really good. Small and very busy place. You can call and order to go. They also have enchiladas, chilaquiles and sauté chicken combinations. What can I say if You are... More

Food taste very good. The tortillas chips and burritos was a good choice. Good place for lunch or dinner. Prices is average. The restaurant has just a few parkings.

Love the chicken quesadillas, one of my favorites, they have a nice selection of toppings including cilantro, diced onions and three spicy salsas to complement your quesadilla. Nothing fancy but very good mexican food.
