We ate breakfast every morning at this great place! The food is terrific with so many choices. We ate both traditional Mexican dishes and standard breakfast items - all delicious. The service is crazy fast but you never feel rushed. This is important because there is almost always a line to get a table - especially at dinner and on... More

This place is weirdly popular with Tapatíos. People always mention that it is "clean." The service is good, and very fast for Mexico. However, the food is average and I would never dream of waiting in the long lines that form here for lunch. There are generally places right around the corner with better food. YMMV, of course.

This restaurant is always busy and almost always has a waiting line. It is a favorite with the locals. Authentic Mexican menu. The food is delicious.

This is a busy, happening place. The waitstaff and cooks are busy, busy. Everything was very clean. We like going to local places like this that are well run and popular. We ordered Chicken enchiladas and a large vegetable salad. The enchiladas consisted of tortillas wrapped around grilled chicken with a sprinkling of queso cheese and maybe an 1/8 teaspoon... More

We visited two nights in a row. Would go again. Everything is wonderful with good service. Be SURE to order Cazuela de la Chata, their house special drink. It's FABULOUS, and unlike any drink you have had before.

Not knowing what mole is meant to taste like, we agree it was great. They made me a vegetarian version of the chicken enchiladas with mole (except with refried beans). Unfortunately the veggie version was served with potatoes that had clearly been roasted in chicken juices (but also some rice that was meat free). The chicken enchiladas were packed with... More

This restaursant is a favorite with the locals as well as touristas. The menu is Mexican with many choices. It is an extremely clean facility with a friendly staff. We ate here 3 times within a week.
