The food is bistro style Mexican and is delicious. Our group had street taco plates, tamals, chili rellenos and burritos. They were all very tasty and well prepared. We also had Margaritas and were very pleased with those. The service was excellent; very attentive and...More

This is an excellent jewel in Las Vegas located in downtown Las Vegas. The owner restored one of the oldest Mexican restaurants in town and brought it up to date with a new décor and twist on Gourmet cuisine - excellent food and great prices....More

The waitress was super nice. She was handling the entire restaurant alone and did a super job. The fajitas were a bit unusual - chopped beef that had been cooked kind of like bbq but with a lot of chili. The tortillas were very fresh...More

Chili relleno and sangria are just as. I remembered them. Best around. Relleno is not spicy so don't expect that, but it allows the flavor to stand out even more. Eating here has become one of my favorite traditions when I come to Vegas.

This is one of Vegas's best kept secrets. The enchiladas are very delicate with the old country flavor. The fajitas surf and turf are a blend of flavors like no other! This is a must visit for anybody that loves the south flavor.

My husband and I had been watching a documentary on youtube and happened to see this place on it. The following day we were walking around in the area when my husband decided he fancied some Mexican food; we looked on g-maps and a dot...More

Irma has taken an institution (albeit a somewhat run down one) and turned it into a charming bistro. The place is adorable, and the food delicious. Since I am vegan, there are limits as to what I can eat, but the chef, and Irma, always...More
