One of the best Mexican restaurants I've been to. Great burritos and horchatas. I highly recommend this place, if you're in the neighborhood...

Phone number 310-679-5161. Owners are Rodolfo Garcia and Juan Manuel Garcia. Restaurant offers excellent home-style Mexican food. Impressively friendly owners and staff. Although small, very clean and comfortable surroundings. Generous portions of everything, including the wine. Priced almost too reasonably for the level of food and service excellence. This is the kind of restaurant we will go out of our way to visit any time we are in Los Angeles.
