I have never had a bad meal here and the employees are friendly. Table side guacamole and salsa is excellent and plenty to choose from on the regular menu. Busy on weekend nights. Reviewed by: Marcus Drew - 5656 Clara Street, Bell Gardens, CA 90201

In the area on business and decided to pull off freeway for breakfast after seeing reviews. I ordered the weekend only pozole and was not disappointed! Service from Maria was outstanding. Highly recommend this place if you are searching for authenticated food! Worth it.

The bar side is great for adults. It may be difficult to find a seat but the food is good. It is a bit loud so if you prefer something not as loud I recommend that you sit on the restaurant side. Flour tortillas are...More
