The people were great - nice, friendly, helpful. Good service. Great food! Great fish tacos (dinner) and chilaquiles con arrachera (breakfast/brunch). Really really hot salsa! Great music all day long. Great people watching. Friday night we even saw a parade.

We've eaten here often over the years. It is always good and fun to watch the people walking by. Their lemonade is especially delicious as is their enchiladas verde. Grilled items like garlic shrimp or arrachera are also tasty

Great guacamole. The free escabeche is awesome. Prices slightly higher since it's the main drag, but well worth it. I can't wait to go for breakfast.

They seem to have lots of live music at different times of day. A good place to people watch. Love their pot of veggies that they bring to the table, included in the price, featuring carrots, half a garlic bulb and some silly-hot chillies. Yeowww....More

A year ago, I titled my review of this restaurant, "Complimentary pickled vegetables worth it in themselves.” And that's still true. But the food is also good, if not great, and the prices very reasonable--much more so than in the hotel zone. And there was...More
