The server was very helpful to start with. I was happy to see they carry Anderson Ale's, but was disappointed to hear they were out of the lengua and barbacoa taco options. I had chorizo and chicken tacos, with a chile rellenos. Everything was delicious and my food came out super fast. I know it's authentic, but I would have... More

We ate here before catching a concert at Aeolian Hall. (just across the street) The food here is as authentic Central American as you're going to get. The restaurant is spotless and has a warm, family feeling. The owner came out from the kitchen and personally spoke to everyone at each table. I had the Chile Rellenos - perfect! I'll... More

I have eaten here and given it a couple of chances but no more. The food is overpriced, the service is slow or nonexistent and the quality of food is getting worse each time. Customers sometimes seem to wait too long even when it's barely busy and when what appears to be the owner tries to help, she has no... More

I was in London for the day (I live 1 hr away) and found this place on TripAdvisor. When I first got there, server was attentive and explained certain items on the menu, I ordered the taco platter one of which included cow tongue (delicious btw). Throughout the whole dinner service and afterwards, not once did my server stop by... More

Found this place to be a little pricey for Mexican food. Ordered the taco platter (chicken) $12.95 4 small soft tacos but they didn't put the sauce on it?? Had to ask again for the sauce? Also ordered the chips which came with really cold salsa. I think it would have been better with room temp. Salsa. Cute place.

I was here last year and the the food was okay but the price was fair. My girlfriend and I ordered Nachos, All we got was some chips topped with lettuce and tomatoes and sprinkles of cheese for $12, way too expensive for something we could of made at at home better for quarter of the price. The quesadillas, couldn't... More

Just finished eating a giant burrito. It was fantastic. The homemade salsa and tortillas are great. Fresh squeezed limeade is a must. I will be eating here again very soon. Great ambiance with traditional music.

We had nachos to start (which were no better than nachos you could make at home with very few toppings), the breakfast which was ok, and three tacos which were all very dry. When asking fit water or the bill or anything else, it took ages. Our food didn't come for so long that we began following up and then... More
