When you think Louisville, do you think, "great Mexican food?" Me neither. This place lived up to those expectations. How you make Mexican food tasteless is beyond me. Just go to Taco Bell.

My wife and I ate dinner at the Zorn Street location on Friday, September 25th, 2015. We both are Mexicans and if we are experts in anything it's Mexican food. The food was excellent. The rice is the key to good, authentic Mexican food, and...More
