If you have read my other reviews, you know that I am on the lookout for veg I fare where ever I go---including Mexico. So, this review is for similar people and may not apply to others. That being said, we will not be going back to here. The 2 choices I had were a salad or a dish described... More

What we 4 ordered (Pozole) for three and Molcajete (hot serving of beef, chicken, farmers cheese and nopal cactus baked on a molcajete (volcanic stone grinding bowl) was hardly worth eating. Our first clue to low grade food were the stale tortilla chips brought to the table followed by the nachos (with stale chips and processed cheese). The Pozole tasted... More

At 7pm, there were enough tables available but impossible to move them and get them next to each other. The women at the entrance are not welcoming at... More

Dropped in by chance and had an extremely good experience. The kids had spaghetti and lovd it. My plate of grilled meat,cheese and vegetables "the Van Gogh" was really quite good as was my wife's Ceasar Salad. Service was very attentive. Maybe we got lucky but would be happy to go back.
