We went here on our way to Austin city limits, and we made a point to stop here because we have been here before and we knew that it was delicious. Which it was, again. I especially recommend the avocado dish. Fun decor, too!

We just wanted a bite to eat, but the menu board was so enticing that we pigged out a little. I had the chilaquiles with some tomatillo salsa and some habanero salsa, and it was flamin’ amazing. The tacos al pastor were tasty as well....More
