Authentically Mexican flavors, very reasonable prices, very generous portions, heavy Mexican clientele (which is a very good sign).

I liked the burrito I got, although it was just average. The place is nice to eat in, is clean. The service was dissaointing since the waitress did not tell us the specials. It took quite a while to get our food. I honestly think that in this area there are bettr mexican places.

This small restaurant in the Italian Market feels like you've stepped into a place in some little town in Mexico. Food is tasty with big portions and the service was friendly.

If you go there, try the fish tacos. Breaded tilapia,rice,lettuce and a tiny amount of dressing. Delicious and reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly and there is plenty of room between tables. Not noisy, but comfortable. The carne Assad is also excellent. Wasn't too crazy about the salsa Verde....a ...little too watery. But overall a very nice restaurant.

Great authentic mexican food on Washington Street. It's not fancy by any means, but it's inexpensive, large portions and tastes great. Great tacos and horchata, and friendly staff.

Excellent and authentic Mexican food in South Philly, with traditional offerings not found in other places in the city. Some of the best "al pastore" tacos and horchata around, all with great service and very reasonable prices. The only difficulty, like many spots in South Philly, is parking.

I wasn't really enjoying it, might have been sick of something. I love pepperoni but this was far too greasy and not sitting well in my stomach. I picked off the pepperoni but still not going down :(

My friends and I went in search of a Mexican restaurant near ninth Street last weekend. What can I say we were a few years late to the Mexican Renaissance. Someone from the neighborhood pointed us to Plaza Garibaldi and we weren't disappointed. More than 30 years ago I ventured into the same spot when it was Saigon, one of... More

This is a really enjoyable place for dinner, that is also inexpensive and relaxed. The food is great... good mole sauce, some complex dishes, as well as reliable standards. Enormous portions for relatively low prices ($10-$14). Plus, the beer is plentiful and cheap! Not elegant, but a comfortable dining room. Give it a try!
