The guacamole is also fantastic!... More

Location: the building has beautiful murals on the exterior, hole-in-the-wall place...we drove a bit to find it but it was totally worth it. Service: our server was very nice, made excellent recommendations, and kept our waters filled Food: the best Mexican we've ever had Drinks: Lowrider Margarita (fresh lime juice, tequila, cointreau)-we don't like our drinks sweet so this was...
