Nice salads and sandwiches for lunch. Great fries. Nice and clean. Service was good and the menu was typical lunch joint. Haven't had dinner here but I've heard that the Mexican dishes at night are fine. Al fresco dining available.

I had a lox, cream cheese, onion, capers and tomato omelette. So so good. So rare to find lox, and in a Mexican restaurant. Outstanding

Have been there a few times and usually service is quick and food is good. Went there this weekend and the waitress took so long to take our order we left.

Great place to gather with friends and enjoy a great meal! Crab Tostados were outstanding. Beef empanadas were too doughy but chicken were tasty! Could use better dessert options. Flan was yummy but not traditional kind. Was a great night, staff was very good.
