Delicious food, friendly staff, and the kitchen is right in front of you! It is so cheap that we tried almost everything on the menu. Feels like a home cooked meal! Do not miss the Sopes with carne!

Non-pretentious, cheap, fresh and tasty, this little restaurant deserves more recognition. Frequented by locals and tourists alike, service is pleasant and speedy and the food is excellent. Try the chicken soup or the tacos
