A very local/authentic place. Great value. Liked it a lot overall - only downside was that the selection is quite limited -- they seem to be great at rotisserie chicken and 80% of the people seem to order that.

Basically you just choose your meat then it comes with rice, veg and tortillas. We had the option of chicken, pork or beef all which cost 30 quetzales. Beers are 15Q. Great place to eat cheap with a filling meal

We had to come back here a few times during our stay in Antigua. The meals were big, cheap and tasty. The fruit drink was also great!
