The line outside the restaurant lets you know there is a demand. We heard about this restaurant from two taxi drivers and tried it for the first time. The wait is worth it once seated we were served promptly the server was courteous and quick. We loved the portion size but mostly the flavors from the carne asada to the... More

I was really disappointed of the food scene in Guadalajara, and then we came across this place while walking downtown Guadalajara, the line to get in was long, it took well over 25 minutes to get into the restaurant, but the wait was really worth. The place is packed all the time, so I did not expected a good service... More

The food is fresh and the service is great. There is always a line. Try the white chicken pozole. The price is very reasonable.

The service here is fast. They accept credit cards. The chips and salsa on the house are awesome. We tried two soups both were good. The portions are quite large. Nice place for a large group.

Finding traditional Mexican comida in a "fast casual" place is not so easy in Mexico. This one is super popular with Mexicans--everyone from folks having a business meeting to the occasional soccer team--and the line can go out the door. We ate here twice in two days and can highly recommend the dark mole enchiladas, the caldo tlalpeno and the... More

This review will sound much like other reviews: expect a fast-moving line, expect large portions (so large none us was able to finish any of the items we ordered), expect affordable prices, expect good food, expect helpful service if you need it, and expect to enjoy a "home cooked" vibe to the food in nicer and more comfortable surroundings than...

Ate here twice on recent trip. Dark mole was better than higher priced reataurants and they give you a tasting of two others that were equally tasty. Very friendly waiters but intrigued by uniform of cooks--sort of industrial. Usually lines but they go fast and well worth the short wait.

I highly recommend this eatery, also if it is your first time in a Mexican restaurant in Guadalajara (just careful with the sauces that are on the table, they might be too hot for non-Mexicans) you will love it! The best dish is the chiles rellenos, fantastic quality and quantity. I loved the horchata drink, it is a must. Enchiladas... More

Reviews read by me prior to this trip said this was a restaurant that you must eat at and we did and we were not disappointed. I must say if you are looking for ambiance this is not your place; However, if you are looking for good food at a very reasonable price - go !
