This is a drinking hall. Various mariachi bands can be commandeered to play your favourite Mexican song for 100 pesos. The whole place might sing with them. Not much else to eat but Birria, goat ragout, but it's good.

My review is quick: this is the real Mexico's cantina! I was the only tourist on a friday night. The menu is simple: tacos & birrias! Please don't look for fancy cantina's chain, choose the real Mexico experience next time you are at DF
