The food was OK. I sampled three tacos carne guisada, bean and bacon, and chorizo and egg. The large taco is exactly that, GRANDE!

We assumed this was a cafe style restaurant, it is Mexican food though. Good food, good price. Waiter seemed a little agitated but he should have been aware it was Memorial Day weekend they'd be busy. But all in all good visit, good food.

Good food. Reasonably priced. Parking is awful and service is slow. If you don't mine waiting, then it should be a good experience, otherwise take your business elsewhere.
